In recent years, the amount of digital image information to be stored, processed and distributed has grown dramatically. This trend is boosted by the increasing use of multi-media content for the internet, the advent of digital television, and the generalisation of the use of digital images, in video surveillance, biomedical and e-health systems, and remote sensing to list but a few. This creates new, pressing challenges, and automated management tools are key to enable the organisation, mining and processing of these important knowledge resources.
