Video and Image Processing in Multimedia Systems treats a number of critical topics in multimedia systems, with respect to image and video processing techniques and their implementations. These techniques include: Image and video compression techniques and standards, and Image and video indexing and retrieval techniques. Video and Image Processing in Multimedia Systems is divided into three parts. Part I serves as an introduction to multimedia systems, discussing basic concepts, multimedia networking and synchronization, and an overview of multimedia applications. Part II presents comprehensive coverage of image and video compression techniques and standards, their implementations and applications. Because multimedia data (specifically video and images) require efficient compression techniques in order to be stored and delivered in real-time, video and image compression is a crucial element of an effective multimedia system. In Part III attention is focused on the semantic nature of image and video source material, and how that material may be effectively indexed and retrieved. Topics discussed include static images, full-motion video, and the manner in which compressed representations can facilitate structural analysis. Part III concludes with an extended discussion of a case study. This book serves as an invaluable reference with respect to the most important standards in the field. Video and Image Processing in Multimedia Systems is suitable as a textbook for course use.

Based on more than 10 years of teaching experience, Blanken and his coeditors have assembled all the topics that should be covered in advanced undergraduate or graduate courses on multimedia retrieval and multimedia databases. The single chapters of this textbook explain the general architecture of multimedia information retrieval systems and cover various metadata languages such as Dublin Core, RDF, or MPEG. The authors emphasize high-level features and show how these are used in mathematical models to support the retrieval process. For each chapter, there’s detail on further reading, and additional exercises and teaching material is available online.

ICIAR 2004, the International Conference on Image Analysis and Recognition, was the ?rst ICIAR conference, and was held in Porto, Portugal. ICIAR will be organized annually, and will alternate between Europe and North America. ICIAR 2005 will take place in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The idea of o?ering these conferences came as a result of discussion between researchers in Portugal and Canada to encourage collaboration and exchange, mainly between these two countries, but also with the open participation of other countries, addressing recent advances in theory, methodology and applications. The response to the call for papers for ICIAR 2004 was very positive. From 316 full papers submitted, 210 were accepted (97 oral presentations, and 113 - sters). The review process was carried out by the Program Committee members and other reviewers; all are experts in various image analysis and recognition areas. Each paper was reviewed by at least two reviewing parties. The high q- lity of the papers in these proceedings is attributed ?rst to the authors, and second to the quality of the reviews provided by the experts. We would like to thank the authors for responding to our call, and we wholeheartedly thank the reviewers for their excellent work in such a short amount of time. We are espe- ally indebted to the Program Committee for their e?orts that allowed us to set up this publication. We were very pleased to be able to include in the conference, Prof. Murat KuntfromtheSwissFederalInstituteofTechnology,andProf. Mario ́ Figueiredo, oftheInstitutoSuperiorT ́ ecnico,inPortugal.
