The International Workshop on Image Analysis for Multimedia Interactive Services (WIAMIS) is one of the main international fora for the presentation and discussion of the latest technological advances in interactive multimedia services. The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry working in all areas of image, video and audio applications, with a special focus on analysis. After Louvain'97, Berlin'99, Tampere'01 and London'03, WIAMIS, from now on held annually, will be organized in 2004 by Instituto de Telecomunicaçõe - Instituto Superior Técnico, in the city of Lisbon, Portugal.
This event comes in the follow-up of a rather successful, even if less ambitious event, ''Matemática em Telecomunicações: Que Problemas ?'', organized by IT in 1997.
The present event will take place in Tomar, Portugal, on September 8-12th. Each of the five days of this event is dedicated to one mathematical theme: besides the course, each day program also includes a session dedicated to problem/solution pairs submitted by telecommunications engineers, and solved by interested mathematicians.
