On March 12-13, 1990, the National Science Foundation sponsored a two day workshop, hosted by the University of Virginia, at which representatives from the earth, life, and space sciences gathered together with computer scientists to discuss the problems facing the scientific community in the area of database management. This report summarizes the discussion which took place at that meeting. The report concludes that initiatives by the National Science Foundation and specific discipline professional societies are urgently needed to address the problems facing scientists with respect to data management. Although the report is addressed to the National Science Foundation, the conclusions are more widely applicable to other federal funding agencies. Supporting materials used in the preparation of this report, including the individual panel reports and position papers, are available as a separate technical report (TR 90-22) from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Virginia.
