Introducing all XG members

Dear members of the MMSEM XG,

Jeff and me will have the great pleasure to chair the W3C Multimedia
Semantics Incubator Group. The MMSEM XG will have a face-to-face
kick-off meeting during the forthcoming WWW conference
( next week in Edinburgh. We will announce more news
about that soon.

For now, we would like that each member of the MMSEM XG introduce
himself, stating what is his background and his interest in this group.

I am RaphaŽl Troncy and I'm working with the "Semantic Media
Interefaces" team of the CWI, the Dutch national research center on
computer science and mathematics, Amsterdam. I have a background in
document engineering and Semantic Web
and I have tried to reconcile these two worlds for describing and
retrieving audio-visual content during my PhD Thesis. I'm one of the
editor of the "Image Annotation on the Semantic Web" note [1] produced
by the "Multimedia and Semantic Web" task force [2] of the SWVBD group

And since we should all in this group produce many RDF data for
annotating multimedia material, I'm better to start.
