On Sep 23, 2004, Media Innovation Unit - Firenze Tecnologia will host
a one-day workshop on Audio/Video streaming with Free Software during
Firenze World Vision 2004, which will be held in Florence (Italy).

The intent is to make this workshop a meeting place for sharing
information about the different experiences in Europe about this
theme.

The aim is to:

- exchange best practices at regional level about the Free Streaming
effort (client/server platforms, free codecs, etc, etc)

- start a network of contacts in order to improve the social impact of
these experiences

Amongst the invited speakers:

Francois D├ęchelle (IRCAM)
Juan Carlos de Martin (CNR-Politecnico di Torino)
Michael Sparks (BBC R&D)
Stuart Cunningham (BBC R&D)
Andrea Glorioso (MIU-FT)
Manuel Lora (Xiph Foundation)

We look forward to seeing you at this workshop, to share and discuss
with us and with the speakers your ideas on the role of Free Software
in the streaming arena, what you feel should be the best practices in
this domain, what the next steps are in order to foster Free Software
acceptance into the Audio/Video streaming community.

All presentations will be given in the english language. An
italian-english translation service will be available for the Q&A
session, after each talk.
