In this technical demonstration, we invite visitors to join a group videoconferencing session with remote participants across Europe, using the Vconect system. This research prototype automatically takes decisions about the presentation of available video streams by processing the audio stream from each participant. It observes patterns in turn-taking behavior and dynamically computes conversation metrics to automatically decide, for each conversation node's screen, how to compose (in layout) and mix (in time) the streams originating from the other nodes. The demo invites to discuss future possibilities in video mediated group communication beyond the currently implemented functionality of the demo system.
