archeological sites.

AIMS AND SCOPE

Information Systems are rapidly evolving and involve a broad range of
technologies such as IS development, Databases, Workflow management,
Information Retrieval, Networks, Decision Support and Knowledge Discovery,
and others. ADVIS 2002 aims at bringing together researchers in different
fields of Information Systems who have a common interest in
interdisciplinary research. The Conference will provide a forum for the
presentation and exchange of current research results, original IS
applications as well as bridging research and development in various fields
of Information Systems.

Papers presenting original research results and original implementations in
the topics of interest listed below are solicited. We strongly encourage
submission of papers bridging the research in different fields and promoting
mutual exchange and understanding of cross-field research results.

" Professor Ozkarahan was one of the pioneers of database machine research
as well as the founder of database systems research in Turkey. Moreover, his
studies centered on database machines to which he made significant
contributions. Professor Ozkarahan is well known for his pioneering work on
the RAP (Relational Associative Processor) database machine. He designed RAP
to provide hardware implementations of relational databases. RAP includes
all the relational algebra operations, and an implicit form of the semi join
operation that later became the cornerstone of query optimization in
relational databases.

Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Esen Ozkarahan and working with him
will always remember his great vision, eminent achievements, and generous
friendship."
