By Jan Bierhoff (auth.), Diomidis Spinellis (eds.)

The digitisation of conventional media codecs, resembling textual content, photos, video, and sound offers us having the ability to shop, method, and shipping content material in a uniform approach. This has led the previously precise industries of media, telecommunications, and data expertise to converge. Cross-media publishing and repair supply are very important new tendencies rising within the content material panorama. Mass-media firms and content material prone generally unique content material construction in the direction of a unmarried supply channel. even if, contemporary monetary and technological adjustments within the led content material prone to increase their manufacturers to hide a number of supply channels. Following the content material pattern to "create as soon as and submit everywhere"-COPE, a few architectures, applied sciences, and instruments are presently being constructed and deployed to facilitate the automated conversion of content material to a number of codecs, and the production of leading edge multi-platform prone. This new procedure permits the seamless entry to details over assorted community infrastructures and patron structures. This paintings goals to assemble a cross-disciplinary center of individuals to handle the technical and enterprise problems with cross-media publishing and repair supply. the amount is predicated on papers awarded on the convention on Cross-Media carrier Delivery-CMSD-2003 that came about in Santorini, Greece in may possibly 2003. each one contribution was once reviewed through not less than reviewers-typically 3. From the 30 papers that have been submitted 20 have been chosen for presentation on the convention. these have been additional "shepherded" via programme committee individuals to be enhanced in accordance with the assessment suggestions.

If one wants to build an information logistical application, there is usually a fast - or to be more precise a quick and dirty - way to get a simple solution on the basis of an existing content management system or a unified messaging infrastructure, etc. A wide range of such ideas can be built relatively fast if simplified to a certain level. If one, however, wants to change or extend such an application, or wants to adapt it for another and possibly similar application domain, one is usually bound within narrow limits.

Because the unspecified event "something happened" applies to any job in the system, every job gets this event and has to decide whether it is of interest or should be ignored. A more sophisticated approach uses a request-event concept with specified events.

Based on the demand model, access to the appropriate information sources has to be given. This requires enhanced data and service integration features and the possibility to assess and select sources with respect to user demand. 40 CROSS-MEDIA SERVICE DELIVERY Communication management. The information demand of a user depends greatly on the location and, more specifically on the situation. Thus, it must be possible to detect a user's position and quite often also to identify his/her context.
