IASTED International Conference on
Databases and Applications (DBA 2005)
as part of the Twenty-Third IASTED International Multi-Conference on
February 14 - 16, 2005 Innsbruck, Austria

The International Association of Science and Technology for Development (IASTED)
* Technical Committee on Databases
World Modelling and Simulation Forum - WMSF

Database technology has been continuously challenged by demands from various
areas and applications and has evolved in parallel with advances in hardware
and computing techniques. New applications, issues, and emerging
technologies such as data warehousing and data mining, bioinformatics,
multimedia databases, object-oriented databases, trust management, and
security have compelled database researchers to revisit areas of data
modelling, query languages, storage, and internet compatibility. There has
also been increasing research in computational intelligence, distributed
computing, combining database technology, and software engineering. Areas of
particular interest include biomedicine, biotechnology, and new paradigms of

DBA 2005 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International
Conferences on:
Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AIA 2005)
Parallel and Distributing Computing and Networks (PDCN 2005)
Software Engineering (SE 2005)

As the capital of the Austrian region of Tyrol, Innsbruck is the only major
city in the European Alps and is considered one of Europe’s most beautiful
cities. As both a recreational and historical center, Innsbruck offers an
unrivalled combination of culture, history and natural beauty. Twice host to
the Olympic Winter Games, Innsbruck’s twenty-five Resort Villages blend in
perfectly with the alpine environment and offer world-class facilities for
skiing, tobogganing and snowboarding, as well as countless summer recreation
activities, amidst breathtaking landscapes. Although Innsbruck is a
sophisticated urban center, it has also maintained its historical flavour
and boasts an abudance of architectural and art treasures. The city also
hosts a multitude of international cultural and musical events throughout
the year.Innsbruck, with its unique blend of historical, intellectual and
recreational pursuits, offers something for every visitor. DBA 2005 will be
held at the world-famous Congress Innsbruck, located in the heart of the
city, near the historical quarter. This facility won the prestigious 'Best
Conference Center in Europe Award’ in 2000.
