EG Multimedia'2004 in Nanjing, China: Many reasons for attending

The workshop will be held at Nanjing University, one of the most famous universities of China, with a history of about 102 years. The Nanjing University is located in the Nanjing City, the Capital of Jiangsu Province. Present day Nanjing, with tens of universities and hundreds of high-tech companies, ranks fifth among the "50 strongest" of Chinese cities. It is a transport and telecommunication hub in East China, and the second largest international trade port after Shanghai in the Yangzi River Delta. Like a bright pearl inlayed in the Yangtze River, Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu Province, an important political and economical center, boasts of its ancient culture, unique topography and picturesque landscape. Known as Metropolis of 10 Dynasties, it has a long history of over 2000 years. With the Purple Mountain to the east (likened to a coiling dragon) and Stone Citadel to the west (likened to a crouching tiger), the city assumes a strategic importance. A perfect combination of culture and natural landscape, Nanjing attracts millions of Chinese and overseas tourists each year with more than 50 famous places of interest. Bestowed with numerous wellknown historical sites, like Dr. Sun Yatsen's Maus which oleum, Confucius Temple, the Citadels of Zhonghua Gate, the Ming Tomb, Linggu Temple, Qixia Temple, Rainflower Terrace, it also presents the beautiful scenery of the Qinhuai River, Qixia Mountain, Purple Mountain, Xuanwu Lake and Mochou(Worrynot) Lake. The advanced transportation enables people to travel conveniently to major Chinese cities.

The workshop will be held in two days, including paper presentation tracks and discussion plenary sessions. Participation is open to everyone, not requiring submission of a paper. The workshop will take place just after the ICIG'2004 Conference (Oct.23-25, 2004, Hong Kong, China). The workshop will be co-located with a conference on Digital Media and Digital Cities. As such, it will provide a very interesting opportunity for researchers that want to attend or present communications at these events.

All workshop activities will be held at Meng Min Wei Building of Nanjing University.
