There is a strong need for advances in the fields of image indexing and retrieval and visual query languages for multimedia databases. Image technology is facing both classical and novel problems for the organization and filtering of increasingly large amounts of pictorial data. Novel kinds of problems, such as indexing and high-level content-base, accessing to image databases, human interaction with multimedia systems, approaches to multimedial data, biometrics, data mining, computer graphics and augmented reality, have grown into real-life issues.The papers in this proceedings volume relate to the subject matter of multimedia databases and image communication. They offer different approaches which help to keep the field of research lively and interesting.
