Evolving Hypermedia Information Systems

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 assistance services 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. search engines (Yahoo, Voila), 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.

The EPIA RNTL project is an example of such an evolving hypermedia information system (cf. section  7.1.1 ).

In summary, our fields of interest are the following:

Ultimately, it should be noted that other fields (Life Science, Health, Transports, etc.) could be subject to 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 not well solved with methods in Automatics (e.g. nutrition of plants under greenhouses, control in robotics).
