About this book

Current research in Visual Database Systems can be characterized by scalability, multi-modality of interaction, and higher semantic levels of data. Visual interfaces that allow users to interact with large databases must scale to web and distributed applications. Interaction with databases must employ multiple and more diversified interaction modalities, such as speech and gesture, in addition to visual exploitation. Finally, the basic elements managed in modern databases are rapidly evolving, from text, images, sound, and video, to compositions and now annotations of these media, thus incorporating ever-higher levels and different facets of semantics.
In addition to visual interfaces and multimedia databases, Visual and Multimedia Information Management includes research in the following areas:

  • Speech and aural interfaces to databases;
  • Visualization of web applications and database structure;
  • Annotation and retrieval of image databases;
  • Visual querying in geographical information systems;
  • Video databases; and
  • Virtual environment and modeling of complex shapes.
Visual and Multimedia Information Management comprises the proceedings of the sixth International Conference on Visual Database Systems, which was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), and held in Brisbane, Australia, in May 2002.
This volume will be essential for researchers in the field of management of visual and multimedia information, as well as for industrial practitioners concerned with building IT products for managing visual and multimedia information.
