Real-world data management applications generally manage temporal data, i.e., they manage multiple states of time-varying data. Many contributions have been made by the research community for how to better model, store, and query temporal data. In particular, several dozen temporal data models and query languages have been proposed. Motivated in part by the emergence of non-traditional data management applications and the increasing proliferation of temporal data, this paper puts focus on the aggregation of temporal data. In particular, it provides a general framework of temporal aggregation concepts, and it discusses the abilities of five approaches to the design of temporal query languages with respect to temporal aggregation. Rather than providing focused, polished results, the paper?s aim is to explore the inherent support for temporal aggregation in an informal manner that may serve as a foundation for further exploration.
