A Short Course on
Multimedia Software Engineering
2-5pm, July 5 Wednesday, 2000
SEKE Conference Hotel W, Chicago
Multimedia has two fundamental characteristics that can be
expressed by the formula: Multimedia = Multiple Media + Hypermedia.
How can software engineering take advantage of these two
characteristics? Will these two characteristics pose problems in
multimedia systems design? These issues and the practical
applications are explored in this short course. A framework for MSE is
presented. Participants will gain practical experience on
multimedia applications development from class examples and the
experimental software that can be downloaded from the instructor's website.
Who may be interested in this course:
This short course is intended for managers, software engineers,
programmers and people interested in gaining an overall understanding
of multimedia software engineering, as well as practitioners,
system developers, multimedia application designers,
programmers and people interested in prototyping multimedia
Textbook and supporting courseware:
Registration fee includes the textbook "Multimedia Software
Engineering" by S. K. Chang just published by Kluwer Academic Publishers.
The short course is supported by the courseware developed by S. K.
