Towards a Science of Temporal Databases

Richard T. Snodgrass
2007 14th International Symposium on Temporal Representation and Reasoning (TIME'07)  
Computer science has long been considered to emphasize three distinct perspectives: mathematics, science, and engineering. While the database field has some very strong mathematical and engineering work, the scientific perspective has been much less prominent. This keynote will elaborate the scientific perspective, apply it to research questions in temporal databases, and emphasize that this new way of thinking can yield new insights and deeper understanding.
