This volume consists of 33 full papers, five short papers, and five demonstrations from the July 2006 conference on scientific database management, experiment data management, data streams and time series data, conceptual modeling and OLAP, data mining and visualization, ontologies and metadata management, and algorithms. The researchers propose a pedigree query language for expressing hereditary data, data models for signaling pathways, and a disc-based approach to data summarization and privacy preservation. Other topics include containment of partially specified tree pattern queries, data harvesting for tracing phenomena in sensor networks, a citation system for curated databases, and materialized views in the presence of reporting functions. No subject index is provided.
