New EPSRC grant awarded

Dr. Dawei Song of the KMi has been awarded his second EPSRC grant of the year, an overseas travel grant of £16,459 for ‘Dimensionality Reduction for Efficient Similarity Search in High Dimensional Spaces’, 1/2007-3/2007.

This grant will allow Dr. Song to visit his long-term collaborators at the University of Queensland and Queensland University of Technology, Australia, to conduct joint research and to wind down his previous work there and transfer it to KMi.

These new EPSRC grants will consolidate the position of the KMi’s newly established Multi-Media and Information Systems (MMIS) group as a growing international centre of excellence in multimedia and information retrieval.
