Abstract

An important research trend in databases is to handle different types of uncertainty at conceptual level. The trend of incorporating complex objects in databases presents opportunities for representing imprecision and uncertainty that were difficult to integrate cohesively in simple database models. In this study we introduce a conceptual data model by extending ExIFO to handle both complex and uncertain, mainly fuzzy, objects and classes.
