               Workshop on XML in Digital Media (XMLinDM'02)

                            in conjunction with

   [1]The 8th International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems

      [1] http://www.mine.tku.edu.tw/DMS2002/

                       San Francisco, California, USA

                           September 26-28, 2002


   The current core language of WWW (i.e., HTML) is being replaced by
   next generation markup language called eXtensible Markup Language
   (XML). The main advantage of XML is that it separates content from
   presentation. This allows reuse of content. In addition, the content
   can be formatted using several XML based markup languages, e.g.,
   Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language (SMIL), eXtensible
   Stylesheet Language Formatting Objects (XSL FO), Scalable Vector
   Graphics (SVG), and eXtensible HyperText Markup Language (XHTML).

   XML has several application areas in digital media. For example,
   multimedia content can be coded using SMIL. SMIL can be used, e.g.,
   streaming of multimedia content and mobile multimedia messaging.
   Similarly, SVG can be used for graphics, animation, and visual
   effects. Finally, XHTML will be the next generation markup language
   both WAP and i-mode.

   XML based content can be transformed using XSL. This is convenient,
   for example, in multichannel publishing. The original content is
   transformed to presentations suitable for different kinds of end user
   terminals including personal computers, Personal Digital Assistants
   (PDA), and digital television Set-Top Boxes (STB). This is not
   possible with HTML, since the HTML file contains instructions for
   presentation, which is usually designed only for personal computers.

   In addition to transforming content for different devices, the
   can also be tailored for different user profiles. This, so called
   personalization, requires that user profile are transferred from
   client to the server. For example, the Composite Capability /
   Preference Profile (CC/PP) protocol has been proposed for this

   The CC/PP protocol is so called metadata language, which can be used
   to attach different kinds of useful information to content. Metadata
   is especially useful in content management and publishing. It allows,
   for example, more efficient retrieval and filtering of content.

   This workshop is intended both for researchers and industry
   practitioners working with next generation WWW systems. It is an
   opportunity to present and observe latest research results and
   industry trends. All papers submitted to this workshop will be
   reviewed by at least two independent referees. Acceptance will be
   based primarily on originality and quality of the papers.

   XMLinDM'02 will be held in conjunction with [2]the 8th International
   Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems (DMS'2002).
