The 6th Workshop on Distributed Data and Structures (WDAS'2004) will be organized by the School of Computer and Communication Sciences of EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, during July 8-9, 2004. The main goal of the workshop is to bring together computer scientists interested in Distributed Data and Structures. Originating in distributed databases this field gains growing interest in the context of the recent developments in P2P computing and P2P data management.


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, database and information systems as well as for the problem of resource location in P2P and Grid Computing Systems. The WDAS workshops examine the state-of-the-art in the area with respect to WDAS'2004 is the 6th workshop in the WDAS series.
