VSMM’06: Xi’an, China

We have got a paper “IPML: Extending smil for distributed multimedia presentations” accepted for presentation at VSMM’06 , Xi’an China.

This paper addresses issues of distributing multimedia presentations in an ambient intelligent environment, exams the existing technologies and proposes IPML, a markup language that extends SMIL for distributed settings. It uses a powerful metaphor of play, with which the timing and mapping issues in distributed presentations are easily covered in a natural way.

The British airways lost my luggage on the way to Melbourne, and I was
in my summer shorts when I arrived the winter Australia. I immediately
got cold. And on the way back, the British airways was on strike. What
