Panorama overview

The project explores any applicative field on design, evaluation and improvement of a huge hypermedia information systems, for which end-users are of primary concern. We currently focus on web-based information systems (internet, intranet), or parts of such ISs, offering one of the following characteristics:

  1. presence or wanted integration of services of assistance in the collaborative search of information and personalization (ranking, filtering, addition of links, etc.);

  2. frequent evolution of the content (information, ontology), generating many maintenance problems, for example:

    • a web-based IS containing information about the activities of a group of people, for example an institute (Inria), a company, a scientific community, an European network on the internet or intranet, etc.

    • a web-based IS indexing a wide range of productions (documents, products) resulting from the Web or a company, according to a thematic criteria, eg. the search engines (Yahoo, Voila), the internet guides for specific targets (FT Educado) or portals (scientific communities).

  3. interpretation of the user satisfaction (according to the designer point of view) or explicit user satisfaction, as it is the case for example for business sites, e-learning sites, and also for search engines.

In summary, our fields of interest are the following:

Ultimately, it should be noted that other fields (Life Science, health, transports, etc.) may be subject to the study since they provide an experimental framework for the validation of our research work in KDD, and in the reuse of experiences in story management: this type of approach may be relevant in applications that are badly solved in automatic of control type (e.g. nutrition of plants under greenhouses, control in robotics).
