The School of Informatics of the University of Edinburgh has recently committed to building up its strength in databases. It is one of the top-ranked computer science departments in the UK. In the last UK ratings, it was the only Computer Science school in the UK to achieve a "5*A" rating. It has traditional strengths in programming languages, logic in computer science and artificial intelligence.

As the capital of Scotland and a remarkably attractive city, Edinburgh is is itself a magnet for many international scientific activities. It is also within easy reach of Scotland's spectacular countryside, and it is rated as one of the most "livable" cities in the UK. Edinburgh is a natural hub for teaching and research within the whole of Scotland. Moreover, within Edinburgh there are numerous users of advanced database technology who are forming natural partnerships with database research.
