Campus Plaza Kyoto is 200m west of JR Kyoto Station North Entrance.

- From Tokyo to Kyoto Station, it takes about 2 and a half hours by
- From Kansai International Airport, take JR (Japan Railway) Airport
  Limited Express Train, HARUKA, which runs every 30 minutes. The
  traveling time to Kyoto JR station is approximately 75 minutes and
  fare is 3,490 yen (reserved seats), or 2,980 yen (non-reserved
  seats). Participants from foreign countries can purchase JAPAN RAIL
  PASS, which is a special discount pass for any trains of JR Group
  Railways (except the NOZOMI super express). JAPAN RAIL PASS is sold
  only outside of Japan: Must be purchased before arriving in
  Japan. For details, check website: http://www.japanrailpass.net/

For entering Japan, you need a valid passport and in some cases a
visa. To check whether you need a visa, and how to apply it, visit the
homepage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs
(http://www.mofa.go.jp/j_info/visit/visa/index.html). Obtaining a visa
may take a long period of time, a few months in some cases. So apply
immediately if you need a visa. Ask Japanese Embassies/Consulates or
local travel agencies for necessary documents. If you need a letter
from the DASFAA2003 General Chair for visa application, please send
mail to: dasfaa03 [at] is.aist-nara.ac.jp

    Keynote: A Survey of New Directions in Database Systems
	Jeffrey D. Ullman (Stanford University)

    Abstract: As database system research evolves, there are several
    enduring themes.  One, of course, is how we deal with the largest
    possible amounts of data.  A less obvious theme is optimization
    --- it is an essential ingredient of all modern forms of database
    system.  Because we deal with large volumes of data, we are often
    forced to process that data in regular ways.  But when operations
    are uniform, there is an opportunity for the use of
    very-high-level languages, of which SQL is the primary example.
    However, to make a very-high-level language effective, we need to
    optimize it well, that is, produce effective query plans from all
    sorts of queries.

    In this talk, we shall review the principal directions in which
    modern database research is going, and in each case talk a bit
    about the optimization problems.  Stream management systems are
    one very important new area.  Another is peer-to-peer database
    systems.  Integration of heterogeneous information, especially in
    virtual databases, is also a major challenge.  XML, XQUERY, and
    semistructured data in general form yet another research
