Following the success of p- vious editions held in Melbourne (1996), San Diego (1997), Amsterdam (1999), Lyon (2000), Taiwan (2002), Miami (2003), San Francisco (2004), Amsterdam (2005), and Shanghai (2007), the aim of the 2008 edition of the International ConferenceonVisualInformationSystemswasto providea fruitful forumofd- cussioninresearch?eldsrelatedtocomputervision, databases, humancomputer interaction, image processing, information visualization, and knowledge and - formation management. The University of Salerno was honored to celebrate the 10th edition of VISUAL, choosing a prestigioushotel situated on the enchanting Gulf of Salerno, located between the beautiful Coast of Amal? and the Cilento National Park (both part of UNESCO patrimony).
