Inconsistency management for community databases
cse590q: Database Seminar (Autumn 2009)
Fridays 2:30-3:20 in CSE 605 (database lab)

A database management system commonly manages a single and consistent data instance. In community applications where users disagree on content, databases increasingly need to deal with inconsistencies and allow discrepancies to be either resolved or to co-exist. In this paper reading seminar, we look into some key techniques in this area. On the way, we also discuss database annotations, data exchange and update propagation. The topic is motivated partly by our own current work on belief databases.
"Tweak" to standard procedure
One day before the day you present, prepare and send out a one-slide graphical
summary of your paper; scanned hand drawings are fine and even encouraged (Examples).
For the last class, pair up with another student and prepare a one-slide graphical big picture
summary of the discussed papers (Examples). Present this slide at the beginning of the last class.
