Winter School

We are pleased to announce that the 1st edition of the WinterSchool on Multimedia Processing and Applications (WMPA 2014) will be co-located with MMM2014, taking place on the 6&7th January 2014.

The winter school aims at offering participants from all over the world – both PhD/MSc students and young researchers – training on the latest technological developments in the area of multimedia processing (media analysis, media annotation, media rights management) and of emerging multimedia applications (in the Sensor Web, audiovisual archives, TV broadcasting, digital preservation and e-learning domains).

The school will combine delivering in-depth lectures with giving to its participants the possibility for gaining hands-on experience on the use of new multimedia processing techniques (e.g. media fragment annotation and re-use technologies), and on the effectiveness, privacy etc. issues that may arise. The latest R&D in EU funded projects and latest insights from experts in the industry domains which stand to benefit from these new technologies will help students to appreciate the state of the art and future chances for industry adoption. The school will also support the close interaction between the students and all participants of the MMM’14 conference; among other possibilities, all school’s students will have the chance to bring a poster describing their current research work and present it in a joint winter school – MMM’14 poster session.

For more details, please see the WMPA 2014 website. You may wish to download the Conference Booklet which provides local organisation details for all attendees.
