Multimedia Systems Conference provides showcase for student finalists
This year's Multimedia Systems Conference provided an excellent showcase for the final-year Computer Science course in Multimedia Systems. The Conference was sponsored by Siemens Roke Manor Research. The conference, the seventh in the series, included 11 papers in four different sessions, a panel session on the future of TV, and around 60 posters were exhibited during session breaks. Students on the Multimedia Systems course have the ambitious task of organizing and running a day-long conference, in which their own research findings are presented to an audience of students and staff. Like a typical academic conference, the MMS event includes individual research project posters, anonymous peer review, and a full day of presentations. The keynote was given by Peter Lockhart, Head of Future Systems at Siemens Roke Manor.
