JPEG 2000 for the practitioner - free one-day seminar

This recently announced call for papers/registration may be of interest to our readers:

JPEG 2000 for the practitioner - a one-day seminar

A free seminar to explore and examine the use of JPEG 2000 in the cultural heritage industry will be held at the Wellcome Trust. The seminar will include specific case studies of JPEG 2000 use. It will explain technical issues that have an impact on practical implementation of the format, and explore the context of how and why organisations may choose to use JPEG 2000. Although the seminar will have an emphasis on digitisation and digital libraries, the papers will be relevant to a range of research and creative industries. Places are limited to 80 attendees. Papers will be made available online after the event.

Tuesday 16 November 2010
9am - 5pm
Wellcome Trust, 215 Euston Road, London, UK

This seminar is hosted by the JPEG 2000 Implementation Working Group and the Wellcome Library.

I look forward to seeing a public version of the proceedings of the Nov. 16 meeting about JPE2000. I use it extensively at my college for presentation and archiving, but fear there is a lot about the standard that I do not understand.
