The history of database system research is one of exceptional productivity and startling economic impact. Barely 20 years old as a basic science research field, database research has fueled an information services industry estimated at $10 billion per year in the U.S. done. Achievements in database research underpin fundamental advances in communications systems, transportation and logistics, financial management, kowledge-based systems, accessibility to scientific literature, and a host of other civilian and defense applications. They also serve as the foundation for considerable progress in basic science in various fields ranging from computing to biology.
