We decided to change the contents of the upcoming lectures. Some new topics have emerged in research on XML and Databases that we like to tell you about. To make room for that we have to skip and reduce some other topics. This also means that we skip 4 papers from the reader and replace them by 5 other papers which are available electronically in the Archive. I will update the Roster and Archive of TeleTOP today. The final three lectures in the new roster are now organized to fall into one theme: “XML Database Support for Multimedia Applications”. The database support we will look into are information retrieval for XML, XML updating, distributed XML querying, XML stand-off annotations and streaming XML.
