ICT COST Action 276
Information and Knowledge Management for Integrated Media Communication Systems. Chair: J. Tasic, Slovenia

The main objective of the Action was to develop advanced multimedia data and knowledge management technologies for personal multimedia communication systems and services, including specific signal processing and implementation techniques for users’ personal terminals. In addition, some critical system features were examined, like system integration and personification of services, enhanced by implementation trials and demonstrations of advanced personal services.

The Action provided opportunities for active exchange of ideas and solutions among the experts from many different research areas: information and computer science, telecommunications, fundamental signal processing, and VLSI hardware design. From the achievements reached it can be expected that many of them will be realized in future communication systems.

The Action’s achievements were documented and disseminated through publishing in journals, in proceedings of conferences and workshops and also through a book issued by Kluwer Academic Publishers.

Action 276 was a rather unique network of scientists and research institutions, not only from Europe but also from other parts of the world showing strong ambitions. Their influence on the future development of smart multimedia communication systems in Europe will be substantial and will undoubtedly help to improve the industrial competitiveness of European industry in this area.
