The AMDO 2004 workshop took place at the Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB) on 22–24 September, 2004, institutionally sponsored by the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR), the MCYT (Comision Interm- isterial de Ciencia y Tecnologia, Spanish Government), the AERFAI (Spanish Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis), the EG (Eurogra- ics Association) and the Mathematics and Computer Science Department of the UIB. Also important commercial sponsors collaborated with practical dem- strations; the main contributors were: Barco Electronics Systems (Title Sp- sor), VICOM Tech, ANDROME Iberica, CESA and TAGrv. The subject of the workshop 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 priorities are: deformable models, motion analysis, articulated models and animation, visualization of deformable models, 3D recovery from motion, single or multiple human motion analysis and synthesis, applications of deformable models and motion analysis, face tracking, recovery and recognition models, and virtual and augmented reality systems.
