Abstract: The ever expanding abundance of information and computing power enables researchers and users to tackle highly interesting issues, such as applications providing personalized access and interactivity to multimodal information based on user preferences and semantic concepts or human-machine interface systems utilizing information on the affective state of the user. The general focus of the AIAI conference is to provide insights on how AI can be implemented in real world applications. During the main AIAI-2009 conference, four (4) Workshops, on various specific AI application areas, were held, with parallel sessions: - Workshop on Biomedical Informatics and Intelligent Approaches in the Support of Genomic Medicine (BMIINT) - Workshop on Artificial Intelligence Approaches for Biometric Template Creation and Multibiometrics Fusion (ArtIBio) - 2nd Workshop on Artificial Intelligence Techniques in Software Engineering (AISEW 2009) - Workshop on Artificial Intelligence Applications in Environmental Protection (AIAEP) This volume contains papers selected for presentation at the Workshops of the 5th IFIP Conference on Artificial Intelligence Applications and Innovations (AIAI 2009) being held from 23rd till 25th of April, in Thessaloniki, Greece. The Workshops were held on 24th (BMIINT, ArtIBio) and 25th of April (AISEW 2009, AIAEP). The IFIP AIAI 2009 conference is co-organized by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, by the University of Macedonia Thessaloniki and by the Democritus University of Thrace. AIAI 2009 is the official conference of the WG12.5 "Artificial Intelligence Applications" working group of IFIP TC12 the International Federation for Information Processing Technical Committee on Artificial Intelligence (AI). The response to call for workhsop proposals was satisfactory. Five workshop proposals were received; finally, four of them managed to receive a critical mass of submitted papers and make it to the AIAI-2009 conference. The wide range of topics and high level of contributions guarantees a very successful set of workshops.
