Distributed multimedia computing and communiation systems combine computer systems, networks and distributed software to facilitate applications that enable and enhance collaborative work, direct interpersonal communication, remote access to information and real-time presentation of information from a variety of sources. Over the next decade, we expect such systems to become central to the infrastructure of our increasingly information-driven society. This prospectus describes a program of research being pursued within the Computer and Communications Research Center of Washington University and the Departments of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering. This program seeks to promote the creation of effective distributed multimedia systems and develop the fundamental understanding needed to determine how such systems can be best designed and used.
