For the past days I have been at the ACM Multimedia Conference in Augsburg, Germany. A very interesting event, with a few keynote papers, and several parallel sessions, held at the Augsburg University. Much emphasis has been on automated multimedia annotation. Friday were a few workshops, devoted to related topics. An interesting event - I will bring back a DVD with the proceedings and a few new contacts.
One of the people I met there, works actually not far from me in the UK. I seem to meet him always quite far away from the UK, in Brussels, in Tokyo, but never in Northern England. Well, we agreed to meet sometime soon!
I also met a former intern who was at RSC a few years ago: Cyril Concolato from France.
