It is left as an exercise to any motivated SMIL developer to create a SMIL presentation which automatically links the sound with the slides.

Delegates from the south east region should note that their discussion group session will be the largest. In order to provide sufficient time for everyone from this region to give their views on the topic (which is Content Management Systems) we invite delegates from this region to go to the discussion group page for the South East region and use the Wikalong annotation tool to give their thoughts on the most important issues related to CMSs prior to the event.
A test page has been set up for testing the Wikalong annotation service. This service is provided in order to allow delegates to create collaborative Web pages for the discussion groups, parallel sessions and plenary talks.
