Foundations of data organization is a relatively new field of research in comparison to, other branches of science. It is close to twenty years old. In this short life span of this branch of computer science, it has spread to all corners of the world, which is reflected in this book. This book covers new database application areas (databases for advanced applications and CAD/VLSI databases), computational geometry, file allocation & distributed databases, database models (including non- traditional database models), database machines, query processing & physical structures for relational databases, besides traditional file organization (hashing, index file organization, mathematical file organization and consecutive retrieval property), in order to identify new trends of database research. The papers in this book originally represent talks given at the International Conference on Foundations of Data Organization, which was held on May 21-24, 1985, in Kyoto, Japan. This conference was held at Kyoto University, and sponsored by the organizing committee of the International Conference on Foundations of Data Organization and the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science. The conference was in cooperation with: ACM SIGMOD, IEEE Computer Society, Information Processing Society of Japan, IBM Research, Kyushu University, Kobe University, IBM Japan, Kyoto Sangyo University and Polish Academy of Sciences. This Conference was the follow-up of the first conference, which was hosted by the Polish Academy of Sciences and held at Warsaw in 1981. The Warsaw conference focused mainly on consecutive retrieval property and it's applications.
