This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 24th Seminar on Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Informatics, SOFSEM'97, held in Milovy, Czech Republic, in November 1997. SOFSEM is special in being a mix of a winter school, an international conference, and an advanced workshop meeting the demand for ongoing education in the area of computer science. The volume presents 22 invited contributions by leading experts together with 24 revised contributed papers selected from 63 submissions. The invited presentations are organized in topical sections on foundations, distributed and parallel computing, software engineering and methodology, and databases and information systems.
