The development of relational database management systems
served to focus the data management community for decades, with
spectacular results. In recent years, however, the rapidly-expanding
demands of "data everywhere" have led to a field comprised of
interesting and productive efforts, but without a central focus or
coordinated agenda. The most acute information management chal-
lenges today stem from organizations (e.g., enterprises, government
agencies, libraries, "smart" homes) relying on a large number of
diverse, interrelated data sources, but having no way to manage
their dataspaces in a convenient, integrated, or principled fashion.
