This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Database Programming Languages, DBPL-6, held in Estes Park, Colorado, USA, in August 1997. The 20 revised full papers presented have gone through two rounds of reviewing and selection. Also included are two invited talks, the transcription of a panel discussion and an introductory survey by the volume editors. The papers address all current aspects of database programming languages, in particular spatial databases, typing, query languages for new applications, views, expressive power, aggregate queries, cooperative work, and transactions.
