TheAMDO-e2006conferencetookplaceattheHotelMonPort, Portd Andratx (Mallorca), on July 11-14, 2006, sponsored by the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), the MEC (Ministerio de Educaci on y Ciencia, SpanishGovernment), theConselleriad Economia, HisendaiInnovaci o(Balearic Islands Government), the AERFAI (Spanish Association in Pattern Recognition and Arti?cial Intelligence), the EG (Eurographics Association) and the Ma- ematics and Computer Science Department of the UIB. Important commercial sponsorsalsocollaboratedwithpracticaldemonstrations;themaincontributions were from: VICOM Tech, ANDROME Iberica, GroupVision, Ndigital (NDI), CESA and TAGrv. The subject of the conference was ongoing research in articulated motion on a sequence of images and sophisticated models for deformable objects. The goals of these areas are to understand and interpret the motion of complex objects that can be found in sequences of images in the real world. The main topics considered as priority were: geometric and physical deformable models, motion analysis, articulated models and animation, modelling and visualization of deformable models, deformable models applications, motion analysis appli- tions, single or multiple human motion analysis and synthesis, face modelling, tracking, recovering and recognition models, virtual and augmented reality, haptics devices, biometrics techniques. These topics were grouped into four tracks: Track 1: Computer Graphics (Human Modelling and Animation), Track 2: Human Motion (Analysis, Tracking, 3D Reconstruction and Rec- nition), Track 3: Multimodal User Interaction (VR and AR, Speech, Biom- rics) and Track 4: Advanced Multimedia Systems (Standards, Indexed Video Contents). This conference was the natural evolution of the AMDO2004 workshop (Springer LNCS 3179)."
