IST Event 2006

November 22, 2006, 11:00-12:30 in Room 206,
Helsinki, Finland



The demand for efficient methods for extracting knowledge from multimedia content has led to a growing research community investigating the convergence of multimedia and knowledge technologies, and a number of European, national and industrial projects in the area. Technologies for retrieving semantic information from multimedia content enable new applications and services both for commercial and end users. The aim of the workshop is to present and draw appropriate strands of work which can serve as a reference for future research. The workshop will provide an overview of current research in the area of multimedia and knowledge technologies with speakers from industry and academia, representing a number of EU projects.
