The prize presentation ceremony was held on 19th July, 2003 and followed by a 2-day exhibition and presentation of the projects participating in the event.
With the increasing popularity and processing power of PDA and demand on distributed meeting support system, this project aims at leading the trend of virtual meeting by suggesting a distributed and paperless meeting paradigm which preserves features of real time and interactive face to face meeting.
The system increases meeting efficiency by providing user friendly interface to do real time message exchange, slide show, document sharing and co-editing. Breaking the traditional view on meeting which restricts mobility of participants, the systems allows user to join the meeting anywhere by advanced wireless mobile technology.
