Location: KDEPAM Conference Centre, Mykonos City, Greece.
Only one week to go before the EUscreen Open Workshop starts next Wednesday at the KDEPAM Conference Centre in Mykonos City, Greece. The conference programme promises to be very interesting, with on day 1 presentations about the development the EUscreen project has made since its start in October 2009 and on day 2 an update on the latest developments within other major European projects.
On the first day, workshop participants will get a preview of the EUscreen portal and the mapping and annotation tools. Also, the handbook on content selection guidelines and metadata definition will be released.
On the second day, two sessions will be held: one about metadata and one about applications. The metadata session contains presentations about EBUcore by Jean-Pierre Evain from the European Broadcasting Union, the EFG metadata schema by Julia Welter from the European Film Gateway, the activities within the Media Annotation Working Group by Tobias Bürger from W3C and the Europeana Data Model by Carlo Meghini from the EDM Group. The applications session will highlight various applications through presentations about what users can do with multimedia by Natasa Sofou from WeKnowIt, use of linked data by Guus Schreiber from NoTube/Free University of Amsterdam, automatic metadata extraction by Marco Bertini from VIDI-Video & IM31 and the PrestoPRIME project by Johan Oomen from the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision and Günter Mühlberger from the University of Innsbruck Library.
Registration for the workshop is still open. A social event has been planned on Wednesday evening. Participants who would like to join can subscribe to this event during arrival on the first day.
