Abstract
The M4 project started in March 2002, and has a duration of three years. The overall objective of the project is the construction of a demonstration system to enable structuring, browsing and querying of an archive of automatically analysed meetings. The archived meetings will have taken place in a room equipped with multimodal sensors. For each meeting, audio, video, textual, and (possibly) interaction information will be available. Audio information will come from close talking and distant microphones, as well as binaural recordings. Video information will come from multiple cameras. While the video and audio information will form several streams of data generated during the meeting, the textual information---the agenda, discussion papers, text of slides---will be pre-generated and can be used to guide the automatic structuring of the meeting. The interaction stream consists of any information that can help in analysing events within the meeting, for example, mouse tracking from a PC-based presentation or laser pointing information.
