Course content
This course is a continuation of "introduction to multimedia technology". As multimedia technologies increasingly plays a crucial role in many aspects of computer science and engineering fields, it is necessary to briefly understand it via its wide range of applications. For that reason, this course provides insight into the applications of multimedia technologies in data presentation, communications and networking.
Purpose of class
Apart from several fundamental lectures, a numerous up-to-date research papers will be provided to students for interactive discussions. By doing that way, this class aims to provide the students advanced and practical knowledge on the applications of multimedia technologies in various topics ranging from data compression to multimedia communication techniques.
Goals and objectives
  1. The students can capture the current topics, existing problems and solutions in data representation.
  2. The students capture the current topics, existing problems and solutions in data compression.
  3. The students capture the current topics, existing problems and solutions in multimedia communications and networking.

Evaluation method and criteria
Presentation and communicative ability (50%) and discussion skill (50%) are the criteria of the grade. More than 60% of the total score is needed for getting the course credit.

<Note>
Students are marked absent from the class if they are late regardless of the delay time.
If students are absent from more than one third of the total number of classes, the credit of this course cannot be given to them.
Even though students are absent from the class whatever the reason, e.g. sickness, delay of public transportation systems, forgetting to bring the student ID card, it is counted as absence.
