Finding relevant information is one step in the chain of understanding information. Presenting material to a user in a suitable way is a further step. Our research focuses on using semantic annotations of multimedia elements to increase the ”presentability” of retrieved information. We investigate the use of domain semantics and discourse semantics for improving information presentation. In particular, we present work showing the use of domain semantics for grouping search results, the combined use of domain and discourse semantics for creating a particular genre of multimedia presentation (biography) and finally show the combination of argumentation structures and domain semantics for generating coherent sequences of video material. We provide comments and insights into the viability of these techniques.
