·        International Project Organization:

o       Chair - Video Collaborative Annotation Forum, supported by NIST, Library of Congress, and 23 other worldwide institutes, Feb 2003 – Nov 2003.

-- I initiated and led this first large-scale video annotation project. I also developed the first distributed collaborative video annotation system being used in this project. One hundred and eleven researchers participated. The goal was to establish semantic ontology and associate semantic ground-truth labels to a large video dataset of 63 GB. The objective was to establish a common large-scale database to foster the research of video understanding and semantic retrieval.
