Domain Oriented Systems Development is the sixth volume in the Advanced Information Processing Technology series of the Information Processing Society of Japan. It draws together a collection of research papers on domain analysis and modeling written by a group of software engineers and researchers from Japan, Korea, Canada and Austria. The topics covered include key concepts from domain-oriented systems development, feature oriented product line software engineering, software architecture for intelligent CAD, fully independent component architecture, interrelationships between requirements engineering and domain engineering, framework development and evolution, knowledge base development for product configuration systems, domain specific repository and reuse for CAI, domain framework based on the three-view model, business process analysis using IDEFO, and the generation of architecture product models.

The field of optics has been accelerating at an unprecedented rate, due both to the tremendous growth of the field of fiber-optic communications, and to the improvement of optical materials and devices. Throughput capabilities of fiber systems are accelerating faster than Moore's law, the famous growth rate of silicon chip capability, which has propelled that industry relentlessly over decades. In addition, new optical storage techniques push the limits of information density, with an ever decreasing cost per bit of storage. Economic investment in photonics is at an all-time high. At the same time, other fields of optics, adaptive optics for instance, are bringing new capabilities to more classical applications such as astronomical imaging. New lasers continue to be developed, with applications in display, sensing, and biomedicine following at ever-shorter intervals after the initial discoveries. Given this background, the NATO Mediterranean Dialog Advanced Research Workshop on Unconventional Optical Elements for Information Storage, Processing and Communications, held in Israel on October 19-21, 1998, came at an opportune moment in the history of optics. Its aim was to overview the current state-of-the-art and encourage cooperation in the Mediterranean region, with a view to highlighting and enhancing the existing potential for further development and innovation. The workshop included participants from Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Morocco, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom and USA.

This collection of 60 papers presented at the November 1999 symposium provides research results on non-traditional databases such as Internet-related technologies, handling of various kinds of data, supporting technologies for virtual organization, data models, system technologies, and applications. Topics include temporal issues in data warehouse systems, a semantic caching method based on linear constraints, multimedia document support inside the AHYDS platform, interacting with topological invariants of spatial databases, spatio- temporal levels of detail (LoD) for browsing video databases, and similarity retrieval of human motion as multi-stream time series data.

Current experimental systems in industry, government, and the military take advantage of knowledge-based processing. For example, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) are supporting the develop ment of information systems that contain diverse, vast, and growing repositories of data (e.g., vast databases storing geographic informa tion). These systems require powerful reasoning capabilities and pro cessing such as data processing, communications, and multidisciplinary of such systems will scientific analysis. The number and importance grow significantly in the near future. Many of these systems are severely limited by current knowledge base and database systems technology. Currently, knowledge-based system technology lacks the means to provide efficient and robust knowledge bases, while database system technology lacks knowledge representation and reasoning capabilities. The time has come to face the complex research problems that must be solved before we can design and implement real, large scale software systems that depend on knowledge-based processing. To date there has been little research directed at integrating knowledge base and database technologies. It is now imperative that such coordinated research be initiated and that it respond to the urgent need for a tech nology that will enable operational large-scale knowledge-based system applications.
