While all those frosty Northern European people meet in places like Stockholm, Berlin, Helsinki or Riga to discuss the future of streaming, the more southerly Franco-Spaniard-Italian axis seems to have its own mysterious gatherings going on. Who dares cross the Euro-Mason-Dixon line to infiltrate and give us a report on these proceedings...? The First in Europe, apparently ;-)

All jokes aside, it is actually quite refreshing to see a streaming conference devoid of all the same Names and Faces. Will anyone on this list be heading there?

SCOPE OF THE SEMINAR

  The   exponential  growth of   network speed  makes  it  possible to
  exchange high quality audio and  video  contents over the  Internet,
  often  with real  time capabilities.   However, multimedia streaming
  still presents several issues with regards to Free Software and open
  standards: patents on software     and data formats,  free    codecs
  availability, standards  definitions,  etc, etc.   The goal  of this
  seminar is to provide an   overview  of existing Free Software   for
  multimedia streaming over  Internet, to envisage future developments
  and collaborations in this area and  to examine the possible ways to
  fund these developments.
