Multimedia Conference focuses on technological challenges

Published: 14 January 2008

This year's Multimedia Conference presents talks, demos and posters on Multimedia Storage and Retrieval; Multimedia Networking; Distributed Multimedia Information Systems; and Multimedia Content Creation and Applications.

The Conference is held as part of the third-year Multimedia course for students on the Computer Science and Information Technology in Organisations degree programmes. The students are expected to organize the event and run it as a proper conference, showcasing their own work.

Dr David Millard is one of the course leaders: ‘The ECS Multimedia Conference is concerned with technology that influences our everyday lives,’ he says’, ‘including the future of digital and internet television, games and virtual worlds, and new methods of collaborative working, learning and sharing. The conference is a great opportunity for students to discuss the technological challenges and explore how we may live in the future.’

This year’s conference is sponsored by JP Morgan, who will also be providing the keynote address. The event takes place on Thursday 17 January, from 4 pm until 10 pm, in Zepler Seminar Rms 1 and 2, and food and refreshments will be provided.

All students and staff in the School are warmly invited to attend.
