The IASTED international Conference on Visualization, Imaging, and Image Processing (VIIP 2006) will establish an international medium for the exchange of new ideas and practical experience between researchers and practitioners working in the fields of imaging, image processing, and visualization. It is an opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas, as well as their applications. All papers submitted to this conference will be evaluated by at least two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

VIIP 2006 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

* Biomechanics (BioMech 2006)
* Communication Systems and Networks (CSN 2006)
* Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing (ASC 2006)

Palma De Mallorca (ma-YOR-ka), the capital city of Spain’s Balearic Islands, offers exquisite sunshine and astounding beaches. If you spend your whole trip just soaking up the sun, you will go away considering the visit one of the best of your life. Palma, however, offers many more great experiences. Situated on the beautiful bay of Bahía de Palma, the city of Palma is home to la Seo, the Cathedral. Dating back to the 13th century, it is one of the most spectacular examples of Gothic architecture in the world. Art lovers will be awed by collections at the Museum of Art and the Joan Miró Art Foundation. La Almudaina, the Royal Palace, and the 10th century Arab Baths must also be seen. Local cuisine offers many mouth-watering dishes for the food lover, such as poached cap roig, red scorpion fish, and llobarro a la sal, sea bass in salt crust. The world famous Balearic nightlife provides plenty of chances to dance, and also to experience first-rate singers, musicians, acrobats, and theatre companies. During the day, take an excursion away from Palma and you will discover olive groves, romantic fishing villages, and hidden beaches. The trails of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains will reward you with breathtaking landscapes. From San Telmo you can board a boat for an outing to the beautiful, dragon-shaped, Isla Dragonera.
