Dear members of the MMSEM XG, 

I am a PhD student in the working group of Prof. Steffen Staab [1].
Our group participates in three EU funded research projects (AceMedia, 
K-Space, X-Media) that deal with various issues of managing and utilizing 
multimedia content. On behalf of our group consisting of experts in different 
multimedia-related fields, I am coordinating and mediating between multimedia 
related contributions from our group and external developments such as the XG 
Multimedia Semantics.

Best regards,
Thomas
