VI.D - The Authors

ADAMO development started from a number of discussions on data structures and data management within the ALEPH experiment in the years 1982 and 1983, as part of the software planning effort of the collaboration. Francesco Fidecaro, Steve Fisher, Henri Kowalski, Mike Mermikides, Paolo Palazzi and Henri Videau contributed to the early thinking. Antonio Dileva, from the University of Torino, pointed to the Entity-Relationship Model as an interesting strategy for what we intended to do.
