This volume contains papers presented at the International Workshop on Temporal Databases, held in Zurich, Switzerland, 17-18 September, 1995. The papers cover a range of topics, from the highly thoeretical through to reports on how temporal databases can be used to solve real problems. In addition to the technical papers there are also summaries of two panel discussions which assess the TSQL2 Language Design, and examine the need for additional research into development of TSQL3. Together, these papers offer an overview of up-to-date research work in the area of temporal databases. They should be useful reading for researchers, post-graduate students and practitioners.
