 MESSAGE TO THE PARTICIPANTS OF RIAO94

The explosion of computer processing power, memories and networks,
along with the intense activity of the United States in this domain,
makes the holding of "RIAO94" in New York City an event full of
promise for valuable exchanges of scientific information and
stimulating demonstrations.

Rockefeller University is happy to follow M.I.T., which welcomed
Conference "RIAO 1988", and Barcelona in Spain, which did the same
in 1991.

Rockefeller University is deeply involved in biomedical research,
interelating biochemistry with clinical medecine. Its importance in
the field of medicine is indicated by the fact that its staff has
received 19 Nobel Prizes since its foundation in 1901.

We are confident that your active participation in the conference
will contribute much to its success.

Dr. F. Seitz, President Emeritus, Rockefeller University

 SPECIAL SESSIONS

I- North American and European programs

This special session will review research and development programs
in North America and Europe. The session will include general
overviews, specific program presentations, and interactive discussion.

II- Workshop on "Multimedia Information Representation and Retrieval
in USA and Europe"

Recent work on access to still and moving images will be presented,
with special emphasis on automated analysis of images, user interfaces
and content-based retrieval.

 PROGRAM OF DEMONSTRATIONS

PROTOTYPE DEMONSTRATIONS

Prototypes of systems described in conference papers will be
demonstrated during the breaks following the paper presentations.
In addition there will be other prototypes demonstrated during
a parallel session (time to be announced).

PRESENTATION OF PRODUCTS

The RIAO94 conference is being held as electronic information processing is
undergoing a profound revolution. At work or at home, digital access
to electronic information is finally becoming a mass phenomenon.

Until now , only a relatively restricted number of people,
researchers mostly, have had access to a limited number of data
bases. Today, not only the quantity of information but its diversity
have become factors that everyone must deal with. Data is becoming
more available but it is scattered over
vast heterogeneous technical and social networks which are
managed in a distributed fashion with varied methods and
aims. The information seeker is confronted with new challenges, and
must develop new work habits as he or she directly tracks the
possibilities of multishaped, large and evolving databases.

In this light, RIAO has adopted a different approach and a different
presentation of product demonstrations. Horizontal application areas
giving a wide view of full applications within a domain will be
presented in conjunction with vertical enabling technologies that
may be applied to any domain.

Three main horizontal sectors have been selected as demonstration
areas: Medicine, Space and Art.

MEDICINE
As Health Care Reforms are being initiated in Europe and in the US,
much attention is being given to the future role of medical
computing and telecommunications. At RIAO 94 recent developments
relating to the Electronic Health Record of the future will be
demonstrated.

SPACE
Space and aeronautic technologies have created large quantities of
image data and vast stores of technical documentation. Information
solutions in these areas will be demonstrated via applications such
as Spot Images'database and Jouve's demonstration of its European-American
application using CALS and SGML.

ART
Virtual museum projects are numerous all over the world, as methods
are being explored to produce Art databases, interfaces and research
engines. Some applications as NARCISSE project, RAMA project or
SF Museum of Art will be presented.

OTHER SECTORS
Demonstrations of new and innovative functions in the fields of
Libraries and Legal Fields will also be shown.

ENABLING TECHNOLOGIES
As well as the presentation of the above horizontal application
fields, vertical axes of enabling technologies will also be
presented at RIAO94.

Some of the best advanced products in the following fields will be
present in the Product Demonstration section of RIAO94 :
Information Retrieval, Software tools, Networks Services, CD-ROM,
Interfaces.

The Organizers of RIAO94 are still communicating with a number of
further applications and product developers who will be present at
the conference.
