Abstract:

Under the sponsorship of Office of Naval Research, an international conference on multimedia processing and systems ICMPS was held at Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai, India in August 2000. This report presents a summary of the conference. Progress Report Technology developments in computers and communication are enabling us to handle large amount of data for processing, storage, retrieval, distribution and interpretation. In most cases the volume of data correspond to multimedia data. It is indeed a fact that human interpretation of this data shows that information content is significantly lower than what is inferred from the binary representation of data. The main reason for this is that significant and useful information is in the interaction among the individual components of multimedia data, and we do not yet known how to capture this interaction. Hence there is lot of activity around the world on how to process multimedia data for effective storage and retrieval, communication and interpretation.
