The proliferation of applications like the World-Wide Web and the
Internet Multimedia Backbone (the MBone) has resulted in vast amounts
of image and video data traffic on the Internet. This, in turn, has
given rise to a host of technical, social, and legal problems
relating to creating, publishing, storing, indexing, transmitting, and
viewing image and video material on the network.

This conference serves as a forum where practitioners and researchers
can present and discuss state-of-the-art research, development, and
applications that use image and video on the Internet. Papers are
solicited in the following areas related to Internet imaging and video,
including, but not limited to:

o Communication and Operating system issues for Internet image and video
o Compression and processing
o Language and Environments for Internet image and video applications
o Security, including encryption, and copy protection
o Applications of images and video on the Internet
o Content issues, such as indexing and retrieval
o World-Wide Web browsing and authoring tools
o User Interfaces for on-line materials
o Billing models for accessing and publishing on-line material
o Legal issues, including copyright and privacy
o Social impact
