This Quaero/ImageCLEF workshop follows the tradition of preceeding MUSCLE / ImageCLEF Workshops in the years 2005, 2006, and 2007. The aim of this workshop is similar to the aim of its predecessors in giving better perspective to participants of ImageCLEF and allow for discussion of topics related to image and multimedia retrieval.
