A first ever on-line photography exhibition was one of the highlights of a recent hi-tech Internet conference. The 'Eyes on Yunnan' show, at the Second Hong Kong Web Symposium, was also a charity exercise, helping to raise money for minority tribes in China's Yunnan province. The conference featured Internet researchers from Australia, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, the United States, China and Hong Kong. The three-day Web symposium was organised by the Social Sciences Centre at the University of Hong Kong (HKU). Tsinghua University of Beijing was also involved in the organising aspect. Pictures by 13 Hong Kong photographers were also on public display at the Hong Kong University's Rayson Huang Theatre for three days. The conference, supported by the Australian Government, was opened by Education Minister David Kemp, through an audio-visual delivery in both Beijing and Hong Kong. George McLaughlin, the technical manager of the Australian and Academic Research Network, gave a talk on the evolution of the Net and telecommunications developments in Australia. Other keynote speakers included Legislative Councillor Elizabeth Wong Chien Chi-lien, American Web designer and writer John December, and Tim Krauskopf. Mr Krauskopf helped develop MOSAIC, the first Web browser, and Surf Watch, a filtering software for concerned parents. In addition, student winners of the best academic web design competition received their prizes at the conference, with Andrew Tse of the Chinese University of Hong Kong winning the Leading Edge Award, and the French International School winning the Best School Web prize. The Best Post-Secondary Student Homepage award went to Colin Tang of Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
