National Grants and Collaborations
Codex is a project funded by ANR as part of the Emerging Domains program (DEFIS). It started in March 2009 for a duration of 36 months. WAM is working with five partners: INRIA Saclay-île-de-France (project-team GEMO), INRIA Lille-Nord-Europe (project-team MOSTRARE), University Paris-Sud, Centre universitaire de Blois, Innovimax SARL.
Codex seeks to push the frontier of XML technology innovation in three interconnected directions:
Languages and algorithms: prototypes are developed for efficient and expressive XML processing, in particular advancing towards massively distributed XML repositories.
Codex considers models for describing, controlling, and reacting to the dynamic behavior of XML corpora and XML schemas with time.
The project proposes theories, models and prototypes for composing XML programs for richer interactions, and XML schemas into rich, expressive, yet formally grounded type descriptions.
Multimedia Cooperative Publishing Chain (C2M) is a project funded by ANR as part of the Contents and Interaction program. It started in October 2009 for a duration of 24 months. WAM is working with five partners: Université de Technologie de Compiègne, Kelis Conseil et Développement, Amexio, Heudiasyc laboratory (CNRS), Institut National de l'Audiovisuel (INA).
The project aims at integrating XML publishing chains, Enterprise Content Management (ECM), and multimedia creation tools, in order to design a complete digital system for multimedia creation, management and publishing.
The main challenge lies in the convergence of several approaches:
storage and management of document fragments,
maintaining and repurposing content,
planning, cooperation and production.
Convergence is made possible by the maturity of XML technologies and by the collaborative practices popularized by the web.
