dear all,

I am Frank Nack [1], assistant professor at the Human-Computer Studies
Laboratory (HCS) [2], University of Amsterdam. My background is in
artificial intelligence with a special interest in, among others, the
representation, retrieval and reuse of media in mobile systems;
computational applications of media theory & semiotics; and automated
video editing.

I was involved in the MPEG-7 standard, where I served as the editor of
the Context and Objectives Document and the Requirements Document, and
chaired the MPEG-7 DDL development group. I have not yet had any
experiences with w3c.

My core work always aimed at modeling core sets of metadata so that
creative work processes can be supported. In that context Lynda Hardman,
Zeljko Obrenovic, and I edited in Multimedia Systems journal a special
issue on canonical processes of semantically annotated media production
[3]. Thus, the most interesting work direction in this working group for
me is to work towards a 'media dublin core'.

I look very much forward to working with all of you.
Best regards

frank
