Firstly, an acknowledgement that we successfully held our Winter School on Multimedia Processing and Applications at the beginning of this year co-located with the MMM2014 conference in Dublin. 30 international attendees, mostly PhDs and young researchers, were present for a set of technology centred presentations by MediaMixer experts and industry centred presentations by research project leaders in areas such as broadcasting, digital preservation and the Internet of Things.
The student Siriwat Kasamwattanarote from the National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, Japan won the school Best Poster award for work done on “Tell me about TV commercials of this product”.
The Winter School talks covered 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). We didn’t want to keep this purely for the 30 attending students, so now all of the talks are published online courtesy of VideoLectures.NET:
