Schema mappings are high-level specifications that describe the relationship between database schemas. Schema mappings are prominent in several different areas of database management, including database design, information integration, data exchange, metadata management, and peer-to-peer data management systems. Our main aim in this talk is to present an overview of recent advances in data exchange and metadata management, where the schema mappings are between relational schemas. In addition, we highlight some research issues and directions for future work.
