CBMI'03 is a leader european workshop on Content-based Multimedia Indexing. It is the third in a series of successful workshops aiming at bringing together various communities (audio, video, and image processing, textual information retrieval, multimedia databases) involved in various aspects of Content-Based Multimedia Indexing.
Following CBMI'99 and CBMI'01 that were held respectively in Toulouse, France, and in Brescia, Italy, CBMI'03 will take place in Rennes, Brittany, France. The scientific program of CBMI'03 will include the presentation of invited plenary talks, contributed research papers and two special sessions devoted to European projects concerned with that domain. Selected papers from CBMI'99 http://www.eurecom.fr/~bmgroup/cbmi99/ and CBMI'01 http://cbmi01.eurecom.fr/ were published in a special issue, respectively, of Multimedia Tools and Applications (14(2), 2001) http://www.kluweronline.com/issuetoc.htm/1380-7501+14+2+2001 and of IEEE Multimedia (9(2), 2002) http://www.computer.org/multimedia/mu2002/u2toc.htm. 

Selected papers from CBMI'03 will appear (after extension and peer-review) in a special issue of Multimedia Tools and Applications (Kluwer). Multimedia Tools and Applications (Kluwer) is a very serious international journal, well known by multimedia communities and a pioneer in his field.
