The IEEE Benelux Chapter on Consumer Electronics in conjunction with the Mathematics and Computer Science Department of the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e) kindly invites you for a

One-day Workshop concerning
“Resource management for media processing in networked embedded systems”

Date: Thursday, March 31st, 2005
Venue: University of Technology Eindhoven (TU/e), The Netherlands.
Room: “De grote zaal”, Kennispoort (KP).


Are you interested in the resource management in networked embedded systems that combine a large diversity of media content, such as audio, video, HTML, and 3D graphics?
The IEEE Benelux Chapter on CE offers an interesting workshop program containing both lectures from distinguished speakers as well as short presentations from Ph.D. students on this topic. Media processing is often characterized by highly fluctuating, content dependent, resource requirements. Combined with their real-time constraints, media processing puts high demands on resource management in networked embedded systems. This is especially true for consumer systems that provide high-quality media, which have a low tolerance for artifacts and quality fluctuations. Several prominent scientists and architects from both universities and the industry in Western Europe will present their work and will participate in the discussion. Be there!
