The workshop will focus on four areas:

· Biotechnology, Biomedicine, and Telemedicine
· Data Mining, Informatics, and Digital Libraries
· Video Conferencing, the SURA ViDe Project, and Distance Education
· Network Engineering Research

The keynote speaker(s) and emphasis of this workshop will be on the
biotechnology, biomedicine, telemedicine area. There will be demonstrations
of advanced network applications in each area, and also a showcase of
videoconferencing products.

A program committee is being organized; the program committee will
recommend/select the speakers and panelists for the breakout sessions. All
SURA institutions are invited to participate in the program committee-please

The Video Development Initiative (ViDe) was established in March 1998 to
leverage collective resources and expertise towards removing barriers to
the adoption of digital video in higher education, such as lack of
interoperability, volatile standards and high cost. ViDe was founded by
The Georgia Institute of Technology, The University of North Carolina at
Chapel Hill, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and North Carolina
State University. NYSERNet (New York State, Educational and Research
Network) also partnered with ViDe in its Phase 1 activities.

As Phase 2 efforts begin, ViDe is very pleased to announce the expansion
of its membership to include eight additional institutions and
organizations, which share ViDe technical directions and can lend
additional resources and expertise to the initiative. The new members of
ViDe are: CANARIE, George Washington University, The University of Hawaii,
Ohio State University, The University of South Carolina, Vanderbilt
University, The College of William and Mary, and Yale University.
NYSERNet, a ViDe partner in Phase I, will henceforth be a full member.
Research TV will be collaborating with ViDe in Phase 2 also.

Phase 1 of this multi-year initiative was funded by the Southeastern
Universities Research Association (SURA) to focus ViDe efforts on the
promotion of digital video among the 44 SURA member institutions. Two
deliverables were prepared in Phase I: A Video Conferencing Cookbook and a
White Paper on Video-on-Demand, both of which are accessible at Responses to the RFI released to video system vendors
nationally in September 1998 contributed to the creation of both

The next phases of the ViDe initiative will consist of the pursuit of
collaborations and partnerships with video system vendors to test and
improve interoperability between systems and to develop new
functionalities for the academic environment. Demonstration
projects/applications deploying the selected technologies, and cooperative
purchasing agreements will also be pursued.
