The papers in this volume were presented at the 9th Workshop on Algorithms and Data Structures (WADS 2005). The workshop took place during August 15 – 17, 2005, at the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Canada. The workshop alternateswith the ScandinavianWorkshopon Algorithm Theory(SWAT), c- tinuing the traditionof SWAT and WADS startingwith SWAT 1988and WADS 1989. From 90 submissions, the Program Committee selected 37 papers for p- sentation at the workshop. In addition, invited lectures were given by the f- lowing distinguished researchers: Allan Borodin and Max J. Egenhofer. OnbehalfoftheProgramCommittee,wewouldliketoexpressoursincere- preciation to the many persons whose e?ort contributed to making WADS 2005 a success. These include the invited speakers,members of the ste- ing and ProgramCommittees, the authors who submitted papers, and the many referees who assisted the ProgramCommittee. We are indebted to Robert Kane forinstallingandmodifyingthesubmissionsoftware,maintainingthesubmission server and interacting with authors as well as for helping with the preparation of the program.
