Information about the usenet group comp.databases.theory:

Group's charter[edit]

Discussion of topics relating to advances in database technology including debate on theoretical, prototypical and performance aspects of Database Systems, Data Modelling and Logical and Physical Database Design.


The RFD showed two failings of the COMP.DATABASE newsgroup which this group will attempt to remedy.

  • The number of postings prohibits reading of all the information posted.
  • The relevance of many of the postings is limited.

Note that this is NOT designed to compete with or replace the dbworld mailing list. Clearly calls for papers etc. will probably be posted to both.


Comp.databases.theory is an unmoderated newsgroup which passed its vote for creation by 208:14 as reported in news.announce.newgroups on 19 April 1992.

Current status[edit]

Open, unmoderated.
