Data stream collected from sensors contain a large amount of useful information including causality relationships. The causality join query for data stream is to retrieve a set of pairs (cause, effect) from streams of data. A part of causality pairs may however be lost from the query result, due to the delay from sensors to a data stream management system, and the limited size of sliding windows. In this paper, we first investigate spatial, temporal, and spatio-temporal aspects of the causality join query for data stream. Second, we propose several strategies for sliding window management based on these observations. The accuracy of the proposed strategies is studied by intensive experiments, and the result shows that we improve the accuracy of causality join query in data stream from simple FIFO strategy.
