In this paper we present CoCoMA, an integrated platform, developed in the framework of the DELOS II European Network of Excellence on Digital Libraries, aiming at the unification of the most important aspects of multimedia management and multimedia presentation. The paramount goal of CoCoMA is to maximize the added value from task and data integration by the identification and exploitation of connection points and inherent workflow similarities. The paper provides a brief description of the involved research fields, suggests an architecture for integrated multimedia consumption and presentation, and discusses the most prominent connection points. Problems and solutions are discussed jointly, and illustrated by the components of the application prototype developed for the DELOS project.
