The scope of the MRCS workshops is to bring together researchers working in multimedia systems and to promote research in multimedia content extraction, representation, classification and content security by providing a forum for the presentation of technical achievements and future directions.


MRCS 2006 was endorsed by the International Association of Pattern Recognition (IAPR) and was organized in cooperation with The European Association of Signal Processing (EURASIP).  MRCS 2006 was also sponsored by İTÜ— Istanbul Technical University and TÜBİTAK—The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey.


A total of 100 technical papers were presented during the three days of the workshop. These papers were selected from 190 submissions based on a peer-review process that engaged 155 reviewers. Distributed over six special, three regular and six poster sessions, these technical contributions were complemented by four keynote talks on content-based indexing and search (John Smith, IBM T. J. Watson Research Center, USA ), content representation (Tamás Szirányi, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Hungary), semi-supervised learning of content (Mario Figueiredo, IST, Lisbon, Portugal),  and multimedia security (Pierre Moulin, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA ). The social program included a welcome dinner on September 11 and a Conference Banquet with a  Bosphorus Cruise on September 12.
