**********************************************************

The speed and the quality of expanding and creating a vast variety of 
multimedia services 
like voice, email, short messages, Internet access, m-commerce, to mobile 
video conferencing, 
streaming video and audio has brought true mobile multimedia experiences to 
mobile customers.

Due to constant changing environments, limited battery life and diverse data 
types, Mobile 
Multimedia implies considerable challenges to operators, infrastructure 
builders in terms of 
ensuring fast, reliable services and accommodating the quick growing global 
customer needs.

MoMM'2008 aims to provide an international forum by researchers, students, and 
professionals 
for presenting recent research results on mobile computing and multimedia, and 
to bring together 
experts from both academia and industry for the exchange of ideas and 
discussion on future 
challenges in mobile computing and multimedia.

**********************************************************

Barely more than ten years after the birth of the World Wide Web, the Global 
Information Infrastructure is daily reality. In spite of the many applications 
in all domains of our societies: e-business, e-commerce, e-learning, 
e-science, 
and e-government, for instance, and in spite of the tremendous advances by 
engineers and scientists, the seamless integration of information and services 
remains a major challenge. The current shared vision for the future is one of 
semantically-rich information and service oriented architecture for global 
information systems. This vision is at the convergence of progress in 
technologies 
such as XML, Web services, RDF, OWL, of multimedia, multimodal, and 
multilingual 
information retrieval, and of distributed, mobile and ubiquitous computing.

The goal of iiWAS'2008 is to provide an international forum for scientists,
engineers, and managers in academia, industry, and government to address
recent research results and to present and discuss their ideas, theories,
technologies, systems, tools, applications, work in progress and experiences 
on all theoretical and practical issues arising in information and service 
integration.
