As mobile devices are enhanced continuously with more resources, wireless infrastructures provide support to a growing number of specific purpose environments. Advances on sensor technology, wireless environments, Information Retrieval, Personalization, and Content Based Image Retrieval introduce new possibilities in various sectors, realizing the anytime-anywhere access to multimedia information. This Special Session investigates Retrieval and Dissemination of Information (text and image) in various environments. Special attention is given for Secure, Distributed and Wireless specific purpose Environments.

The RDI session aims at providing researchers and professionals with an insight on:

Wireless architectures to enable authorized users to access sensitive information in a secure and transparent manner.
Policy-based architectures utilizing wireless sensor devices, advanced network topologies and software agents.
Applications related to remote monitoring of patients, elderly people, etc.
Evaluation and Integration of Information Retrieval and Personalization techniques.
Text Retrieval, and Content Based Image Retrieval techniques.
Classification based on various techniques e.g. neural network techniques, fuzzy techniques, and its applications.

Paper contributions from the industry, government, business, academia and research are expected.
