Thanks to the grant, I was able to present my paper in the IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia 2008. The presentation was well received. I got very interesting questions that inspired me about the future plans to further expand the work. For example, one of the questions was about how our system handles view dynamics, which was not particularly addressed in the paper presented. This turned out to be an important research question for the next step of our research. Several attendees were very interested in our tele-immersive project, and came to discuss with me after the talk, and I was able to show some video demos to them. This certainly increases the visibility of our work, and may open new doors to following research or future collaboration. During the conference, I also attended other sessions of presentations, and got to know the latest problems this community has been exploring. The conference was also an excellent opportunity for networking, which allowed me to connect with several professors and PhD students in other institutions.
