The Worlds studio: RichMedia2003 workshop

The Worlds Studio Consortium organized the First International Workshop on Interactive Rich Media Content Production: Architectures, Technologies, Applications and Tools, which was held from 9th to 10th of October 2003 in Lausanne, Switzerland. This Workshop on Interactive Rich Media Content Production addresses the issues of productivity and interactivity in digital content. The workshop was organized by the Worlds Studio IST project and is sponsored by the 3eme cycle romand and EURASIP.

It is the premier forum for the presentation of technological advances and research results in the fields of theoretical, experimental, and applied rich media processing. Therefore, The RICHMEDIA2003 workshop brought together leading engineers and scientists in rich media content production from around the world. After a six month lasting Call for Paper, 75 Papers have been reviewed by members of the Worlds Studio Consortium. As Result of the Reviewing Process, 17 Papers were accepted. These Papers were presented during the RichMedia2003 Workshop in Lausanne. At the End of the two Days lasting Workshop, a special Worlds Studio Panel was held by the Worlds Studio Consortium, presenting the state of development of the Worlds Studio platform to international specialists from Europe, Asia and North America, followed by a discussion panel to collect in the experts’ comments.
