Dear all,

allow me to introduce myself: My name is Tobias Bürger. I'm a  
researcher at DERI Innsbruck [1] and a PhD candidate at the University  
of Innsbruck. Additionally to that I'm employed as a researcher at  
Salzburg Research [2],
where I mainly work in projects connected to the Salzburg New Media  
Lab [3], which
is a competence center for new media in Austria.
The main focus of my work lies in the combination of multimedia and  
semantic web technologies from different perspectives.

My interest in the work of the group orginate from different directions:
There are first personal interests, because my PhD work is centered  
around semantic multimedia content models and second there are  
work-related interests because I'm currently involved in three (IST or  
national) projects that deal with multimedia semantics:
* First of all SALERO [4]: Where I work for DERI and there closely  
together with Joanneum Research on the definition of an multimedia  
ontology (language) for SALERO.
* Second LIVE [5]: This project is about broadcasting of huge media  
events and our role (here I work for Salzburg Research) is to develop  
an intelligent media framework that is centered around so called  
Intelligent Media Assets that essentially are or will be semantic  
enriched content objects that combine/integrate metadata from  
different sources that is available for specific multimedia items.
* Last GRISINO [6] - a project that is lead by me and which is about  
the combination of Grid Technology, Semantic Web Services and  
Intelligent Content Objects. This project once again is centered  
around so called intelligent content objects as a specialization of  
the KCO model developed by the METOKIS project [7], which is a highly  
formalized semantic content model.

In the past I was involved in a project called Smart Content Factory  
in which we semantically enhanced television news stories.

I also participated in the first meeting of the Harmonization of Multimedia
Ontologies activity where I presented the KCO model.

I hope that I can provide valuable input to the work of this group and  
hope to hear and read from you soon.

Best regards,
