The main scope of the conference is to bring together computer scientists interested in Distributed Data and Structures.



Distributed data and structures are at the basis of modern computer science. Advances in the domain are fundamental to performance and scalability of various types of storage and database systems, as well as to emergence of P2P and of Grid Computing Systems. The WDAS workshops examine the state-of-the-art in the areas of:

  • Fundamental Theoretical Advances
  • Access Methods and Algorithms
  • Programming Languages
  • Architecture
  • Prototypes and Applications
  • Demos of Prototypes and of new Algorithms for the Management of various Scalable Distributed Data Structure

WDAS'2003 is the 5th workshop in the WDAS series. Previous workshops took place in Orlando (1998), Princeton (1999), L’Aquilla (2000) and Paris (2002).
