The VLDB Journal (2000) 8: 155 The VLDB Journal c Springer-Verlag 2000 The 24th annual VLDB Conference was held in New York City, New York August 24–27, 1998. The high quality of papers in the conference was the culmination of efforts of many: the authors, the program committee members, and the external referees. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their hard work, precision, and fairness. Among the many excellent papers, and based on the evaluation of committee members, we chose six papers as candidates for this special issue. The six papers were extended with additional material, then underwent a new refereeing process. We’d like to thank the referees of the extended papers for their excellent work and willingness to meet the strict deadlines. Although not a speciﬁc goal of the issue, the collection of papers reﬂects the changing nature of the database ﬁeld. The fourth through sixth papers in the issue can roughly be categorized as dealing with aspects of data analysis and exploration, a new and dynamic subﬁeld. The ﬁrst three papers deal with more traditional systems- related issues such as index structures, query processing, temporal databases, real-time databases and security – though even within these traditional disciplines these papers are interesting and novel. In closing, we’d like to thank the many individuals who made the VLDB ’98 conference a success, in particular the hard- working and extraordinarily competent conference co-chairs, Alexandros Biliris and Inderpal Singh Mumick.
