This conference is an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of, databases and applications. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas. All papers submitted to this conference will be peer reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

DBA 2004 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AIA 2004), Parallel and Distributing Computing and Networks (PDCN 2004), Software Engineering (SE 2004), Web-based Education (WBE 2004), and Biomedical Engineering (BioMed 2004).

Located on the banks of the Inn River, Innsbruck lies in a valley in the Tirolean Alps. A medieval gem and Olympic city twice over, Innsbruck has managed to retain its historical beauty while establishing itself as a dynamic and versatile city center. In recognition of the cultural and historical significance of its past, Innsbruck has worked to preserve the artistic and historical treasures that continue to define this city. It boasts a number of historical landmarks and artistic treasures, among them the "Black Knights", the Court Palace, the Golden Roof, and Ambras Castle.

While the history of this city holds great importance, Innsbruck also features an abundance of first-class recreational facilities. With the Alps at one's feet, there are numerous opportunities for hiking, skiing, paragliding, and mountain biking, all amidst breathtaking physical landscapes. With its mixture of historical, intellectual, and recreational offerings, Innsbruck is a city that holds something for everyone. It is a unique travel experience that should not be missed.

DBA 2004 will be held at the world-famous Congress Innsbruck, located in the heart of the city, near the historical quarter. This facility won the award in 2000 for 'Best Conference Center in Europe'.
