This report explores the feasibility of an Intelligent Multi-Media Presentation IMMP system for human-authored content, marked up using Rhetorical Structure Theory, to support dynamic selection of the presentation content based on user needs and preferences. It describes an XML format developed to represent an IMMP presentation, and a simplified prototype system developed to dynamically select and present content at different levels of detail within a specified maximum duration. An initial assessment of this system, based on the TTCP Military Strikes in Atlantis scenario, found that it performed satisfactorily and that this is thus a feasible approach. Further work is planned to assess this system with other scenarios, and determine if it is a generally suitable approach.
