Purpose and scope: This report briefly documents the algorithms and programmatic approach used to achieve matchmaking within Cloud4All/GPII framework. It describes work done in three activities: A204.3: Rules/heuristics based algorithms for profile matching and A204.4: Statistical methods for dynamic profile matching and A204.6: Hybrid optimisation...
Article
In this article a complete and innovative system for automatic creation of 3D environments from multimedia content available in the network is presented. The core application provides an interface where the user sketches in 2D the scene that s/he aims to build. Moreover, the GUI application exploits the similarity search and retrieval capabilities...

The recent emergence of user generated content requires new content creation tools that will be both easy to learn and easy to use. These new tools should enable the user to construct new high-quality content with minimum effort; it is essential to allow existing multimedia content to be reused as building blocks when creating new content. In this...

Content searching and downloading are the two dominant actions of the Internet users today, despite the fact that the Internet was not originally architected to serve such actions. Content Centric Networking is the new trend in the research community to build network architectures that route content by name and not by the host's network address so...
Conference Paper

In this paper, the MKLab interactive video retrieval system is described.
Technical Report
Full-text available
In this paper, we give an overview of the four tasks submitted to TRECVID 2007 by COST292. In shot boundary (SB) detection task, four SB detectors have been developed and the results are merged using two merging algorithms. The framework developed for the high-level feature extraction task comprises four systems. The first system transforms a set o...

Abstract In this paper, we give an overview of the four tasks submitted to TRECVID 2008 by COST292. The high-level feature extraction framework comprises four systems. The first system transforms a set of low-level descriptors into the semantic space using Latent Semantic Analysis and utilises neural networks for feature detection. The second syste...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Nowadays, an increasingly growing demand for the creation of digital multimedia libraries is arising, as huge amounts of digital visual content are becoming available. The content that resides in these libraries should be easily retrievable and classified in order to be fully accessible. This paper introduces a hybrid multimedia retrieval model acc...
Conference Paper
The state of the art in vehicle configuration is still very much characterized by a face-to-face sales situation. In addition, web browsers are becoming market places. But direct sales over the internet, without contact with a sales person constitute still a small segment of the market, of only a few percent for European manufacturers. The internet...

Conference Paper
The customization level of vehicles is growing in order to deal with increasing user needs. Web browsers are becoming the focal point of vehicle customization, forming personalized market places where users can select and preview various setups. However the state of the art for the completion of the transaction is still very much characterized by a...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper presents a novel approach for generating VRML animation sequences from sign language notation, based on MPEG-4 face and body animation. Sign language notation, in the well-known sign writing system, is provided as input and is initially converted to SWML (Sign Writing Markup Language), an XML-based format that has recently been developed...

The E-MuniS (Electronic Municipal Information Services — Best Practice Transfer and Improvement) Project aims to improve the best practices of the European Union municipalities regarding the use of information technology in municipal administration working processes and services to citizens and to transfer those results to South-Eastern European mu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Presents the design and implementation of a system providing personalized access of mobile devices like personal digital assistants (PDA) or cellular phones to a web-based health-care system. Specifically, a web-based system was designed and implemented to support not only web-access but also mobile access through the use of the WAP protocol. Perso...
Article
This paper describes 'Hippocrates', an integrated platform for telemedicine applications. Hippocrates allows computer supported co-operative work based on patient data folders consisting of selected diagnostic images, annotation text, patient history and other information. All data transferred is encrypted to ensure confidentiality and integrity. I...
Article
The present paper describes methods for the design of both synchronous and asynchronous computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) procedures suitable for the medical application area and specifically for the purpose of medical teleconsultation and remote diagnosis support. The experimental implementation of a CSCW system built upon a PC/Windows pl...
