Since 1996, SBIA has been a biennial event. TheSBIA2008programincludedkeynotetalks/tutorialsbysomeofthemost distinguished researchers in the area, ?ve workshops and a thesis and disser- tion contest. SBIA 2008 continued the tradition of high selectivity for published papers and double-blind reviewing.A total of 142 submissions from 15 countries were received, of which only 27 were accepted for publication in this volume, yielding an acceptance rate of 19%. Each submission was reviewed by three PC members, and a recommendation was provided for each paper based on disc- sion among the reviewers moderated by the Program Chair. We would like to thank all researches who submitted their papers to SBIA 2008. We are indebted to the 150 PC members, and also to the other reviewers, for their excellent work: thorough and timely reviews, and participation in the discussions.SBIA2008hadtheprivilegeandhonorofhavingthisPCandinvited speakers.
