DEXA 2005 Copenhagen Pictures


16th International Conference on

Database and Expert Systems Applications
DEXA 2005

August 22 – August 26, 2005
Copenhagen, Denmark


The aim of DEXA 2005 is to present both research contributions in the
area of data base and intelligent systems and a large spectrum of
already implemented or just being developed applications. DEXA will
offer the opportunity to extensively discuss requirements, problems,
and solutions in the field. The workshop and conference should inspire
a fruitful dialogue between developers in practice, users of database
and expert systems, and scientists working in the field.
