This work aims to bring together a cross-disciplinary core of contributors to address the technical and business issues of cross-media publishing and service delivery. The volume is based on papers presented at the conference on Cross-Media Service Delivery-CMSD-2003 that took place in Santorini, Greece in May 2003. Each contribution was reviewed by at least two reviewers-typically three. From the 30 papers that were submitted 20 were selected for presentation at the conference. Those were further "shepherded" by programme committee members to be improved according to the review suggestions.
The contributions are organized into four different areas: the business issues driving the requirements for cross media content delivery, the architectures used for delivering content to multiple platforms, technologies that address specific practical problems, and, last but not least, concrete applications.
I sincerely thank the authors and presenters, the conference organizing committee, the programme committee, the paper referees, the members of the CONTESSA consortium, the conference sponsors, and all other volunteers who made the CMSD 2003 conference possible.
Programme Committee Chair, CMSD 2003
