Multimedia technologies of the future in the spotlight
The future of 3D television, lifelogging, the implications of the Pirate Bay judgement and augmented reality in education, are just some of the topics on the agenda at this year’s Multimedia Conference, MC10, which takes place on Saturday 9 January.
The conference is organized annually by undergraduate and MSc students taking the Multimedia Systems course in the School of Electronics and Computer Science at the University of Southampton. Planning and running the conference is an important aspect of the coursework, and the event follows the conventions of an academic conference, with submissions, reviews, conference sessions, and posters. This is the eighth conference in the series and the programme looks like being one of the most lively and ambitious so far.
The keynote address will be given by Raeeka Yassaie, Graduate Recruitment & Education Liaison Officer at Imagination Technologies, who will be talking on ‘Designing Tomorrow's Multimedia Technologies’, and providing an overview of the current market for multimedia technologies and future trends, including some that will form part of the conference agenda.
MC10 takes place in the Mountbatten Building on the Highfield Campus and opens at 11 am with presentations throughout the day until 5 pm. There are a limited number of free places available for the conference; further information is available on the Conference Registration web site.
