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

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.

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

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
