Symposium Objectives
The objective of the Symposium is to layout a strayegy for developing a better understanding of the potential use  of multimedia in science, technology, and society.and laying down the path for effective applications of multimedia in these areas.

Symposium Impact & Products
To fulfill its objectives, the Symposium will be conducted using an innovative format.  After each talk or two, the audience will brianstorm and discuss related issues and their impact to developing a better understanding of the potential use  of multimedia in science, technology, and society.and its successful implementations.  Following the Symposium, a manifesto on "Multimedia in Science, Technology' and Society" will be written. This manifesto will be published online, in the CODATA Data Journal, and in other relevant publication channels.
