Multimedia technologies of the future in the spotlight

Published: 14 January 2011

The annual Multimedia Systems Conference takes place in the School on Saturday 15 January.

The Conference is run entirely by undergraduate students participating in the Interactive Multimedia Systems module in the School of Electronics and Computer Science. In addition to providing the papers for the Conference the students also have to plan the event, which is open to all students in the University, and find sponsorship. This year’s event is sponsored by Imagination Technologies, a global leader in multimedia and communications technologies.

This year the presentations will cover five prominent areas of research in the field of Interactive Multimedia Systems. This includes: computer games and interactive fiction; virtual worlds; augmented and mixed reality; emerging display technology (3D, holographic, digital paper); and novel interfaces.

All the papers are available to read on the Conference web site, which also includes registration details and the event programme. The Conference is being held in the Mountbatten Building, and runs from 10 am to 4.30 pm.
