                         ADVIS 2002
         Second Biennial International Conference on
               Advances in Information Systems
                    23 - 25 October 2002
                        Izmir, Turkey

       "To the memory of Professor Dr. Esen OZKARAHAN"*
              http://advis.deu.edu.tr

This is the  second conference to  be held to honor the late
Professor  Esen Ozkarahan ( 1940-1999 ) and  his outstanding
contributions  to databases  and information  systems and it
draws  on  the  success  of  ADVIS  2000  that  was  held in
beautiful Aegean city of Izmir that is in close proximity to
may 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."
