We thank all the people directly or indirectly involved in the ESO Imaging Survey effort. In particular, all the members of the EIS Working Group for the innumerable suggestions and constructive criticisms, the ESO Archive Group and ST-ECF for their support. We also thank C. Lidman for providing his images, zero-points and catalogs. We are also grateful to the DENIS consortium for making available some of their survey data. The DENIS project development was made possible thanks to the contributions of a number of researchers, engineers and technicians in various institutes. The DENIS project is supported by the SCIENCE and Human Capital and Mobility plans of the European Commission under the grants CT920791 and CT940627, by the French Institut National des Sciences de l'Univers, the Education Ministry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, in Germany by the State of Baden-Wurttemberg, in Spain by the DGICYT, in Italy by the Consiglio Nazionale delle Richerche, by the Austrian Fonds zur Förderung der wissenschaftlichen Forschung und Bundesministerium für Wissenschaft und Forschung, in Brazil by the Fundation for the development of Scientific Research of the State of São Paulo (FAPESP), and by the Hungarian OTKA grants F-4239 and F-013990 and the ESO C & EE grant A-04-046. Our special thanks to A. Renzini, VLT Programme Scientist, for his scientific input, support and dedication in making this project a success. Finally, we would like to thank ESO's Director General Riccardo Giacconi for making this effort possible.
