                                  CALL FOR PAPERS

                           1st International Workshop on
                             Rules In Database Systems

                Edinburgh, Scotland, 30th August-1st September 1993

         Aim of the Workshop
         --- -- --- --------
         Rules have been a major focus of  research  interest  in  database
         systems  for  more  than  a decade, the initial focus on deductive
         rules and integrity constraints being augmented by recent research
         into  active rules.  The aim of this workshop is to bring together
         researchers working on both theoretical and practical  aspects  of
         rules  in  database  systems,  to examine the current state of the
         art, to explore relationships between different categories of rule
         system,  and  to identify complementary areas for further develop-

         Scope of the Workshop
         ----- -- --- --------
         Papers are sought on topics including, but not restricted to:

         o    Active rules - theoretical foundations, rule analysis, execu-
              tion  models,  optimisation,  real-time behaviour, production
              rules, tools, interfaces, applications.

         o    Deductive rules/integrity constraints -  theoretical  issues,
              implementation  experience, optimisation, incomplete informa-
              tion, applications.

         o    Integration of active + deductive rules.

         Submissions can either be full papers (around 5000 words) or short
         papers  (around  2000  words).   Authors  should  send 4 copies of
         papers to: Dr Norman Paton, Department of Computing and Electrical
         Engineering, Heriot-Watt University, Riccarton, Edinburgh EH14 4AS

         have provisionally agreed to publish the proceedings.
