Following the success of the three previous workshops, MISRM 1999, and MIR 2000, MIS 2001 all held in conjunction with the respective ACM Multimedia Conferences, we are organizing a fourth edition of the Inlt. Workshop on Multimedia Information Retrieval, MIR 2002, to be held jointly with ACM Multimedia 2002. Its purpose is to bring together researchers, developers and practitioners from academia and industry. The workshop will serve as a forum for discussion, presentation, and exploration of techniques, approaches and experiences in the field of multimedia information retrieval.

In order to have an application focus, this year we will have a special invited session on Multimedia content-based retrieval for cultural heritage applications. The special session will focus on content-based retrieval in the framework of cultural heritage applications and will be organized in cooperation with DELOS-NSF working group on "Digital Imagery for Significant Cultural and Historical Materials".
