The British Computer Society Computer Graphics & Displays Group will hold an international two day meeting on this theme to take place in the UK, 14 - 16 April 1998. A book based on, but not restricted to, papers presented at the event will be published after the meeting. There is a lot of current interest in the convergence of computing, telecommunications, television and broadcasting. Media organisations can put their information on network servers and periodically update it. Users download what they are interested in. Tools and techniques for accessing, interacting with, and displaying, media information are on the increase. Strategies for overcoming bandwidth limitations are needed.

Topics to be covered may include (but are not limited to) the following:

Other areas of interest will also be considered by the editors. Selection of papers for presentation at the meeting will be by invitation or by review of abstracts. Chapters for the book will be selected by review of full papers. Initial interest should be expressed by contacting the Co-Chairs at the addresses given below with three paper copies or one e-mail copy of an abstract giving a title, a description of the paper content, the name(s) and affiliation(s) of author(s), a contact address (e-mail and/or postal), telephone and/or FAX number.
