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 in collaborative information search and personalization (ranking, filtering, addition of links, etc.);

  2. a web-based IS containing information about the activities of a group of people, for instance when they are exchanging verbal or textual information.

    • 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) from the Web or a company, according to a thematic criteria, eg. search engines (Yahoo, Voila), Internet guides for specific targets (FT Educadoc) or portals (scientific communities).

  3. implicit user satisfaction (i.e. the interpretation of the user satisfaction according to the designer point of view) or explicit one, 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, Transportation, 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 managing temporal data; 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).
