We are thrilled to welcome you to the complaints of the first overseas convention on Semantic and electronic Media applied sciences held in Athens. SAMT 2006 goals to narrowthe huge disparity among the low-level descr- tors that may be computed immediately from multimedia content material and the ri- ness and subjectivity of semantics in consumer queries and human interpretations of audiovisual media — The Semantic hole. SAMT began as workshops, EWIMT 2004 and EWIMT 2005, that quick completed luck in attracting top quality papers from throughout Europe and past. This 12 months EWIMT became the full-?edged convention SAMT, bringing jointly boards, initiatives, - stitutions and contributors investigating the combination of data, semantics and low-level multimedia processing, and linking them with business engineers who take advantage of the underlying rising know-how. In overall, sixty eight papers have been submitted to the SAMT 2006 convention and every used to be reviewed by means of not less than self reliant reviewers. we're thankful to the membersoftheTechnicalProgramCommitteewhocompletedthesereviewsand allowed us to place jointly a truly powerful technical software of 17 papers. the choice technique used to be very aggressive with in basic terms 25% of papers being chosen for oral presentation. this system additionally incorporated invited keynote talks from Alan Smeaton and Guus Schreiber, and we're very thankful to them for his or her insightful presentations.

We formerly chaired the convention in 1999 in Edinburgh (as a part of engage 1999) and in 2001 in Lille (as a part of IHM-HCI 2001). The final years observed the convention movement to Italy, ?rst - der the chairmanship of Fabio Patern` o in Pisa then less than Luca Chittaro in Udine. In 2005 the convention will circulation to Austria to be chaired via Manfred Tscheligi. every year the convention has its personal site hosted through the convention chair, but the tackle www. mobilehci. org will continually element to the subsequent (or present) convention. The variety of submissions has elevated each year. This yr we acquired seventy nine complete papers (63 have been obtained final yr) from which we authorised the simplest 25. We had eighty one brief papers and posters submitted (59 final 12 months) and permitted 20 of those as brief papers and 22 as posters. We acquired nine workshop, four instructional and a pair of panel proposals, from which five, 2 and a pair of, respectively, have been accepted.
