Work Package objectives

WP1 - Data Capture and Storage

The objectives of WP1 are first to select, define and enhance multimedia capturing system in the context of
events; second to analyze and select a data storage method and system; and third to define the interface between
the data capturing system and the data storage system, including formats, compression protocols and


WP2 - Analysis and Metadata

The overall aim of WP2 is to automatically analyse the multiple streams of information collected from recordings
of meetings, lectures, videoconferences and symposia, to create higher level metadata that will be integrated
into multimodal hyper-events. The information streams to be analysed including audio & video sequences,
slides, pictures & handwritten notes, and social & web information. To achieve this aim, we have four

  • Automatic analysis of audio and video streams, and the development of information fusion approaches;
  • Automatic speech processing: who spoke when (diarization), who said what (recognition), how was it
  • said (prosody);
  • Automatic video processing: visual events, person detection, human motion analysis, feature detection
  • and tracking;
  • Analysis of online social interactions and user-generated (meta)data and annotations;
  • Metadata integration to enable semantic descriptions of hyper-events.


WP3 - Assimilation and Unified Indexing

The objective of this work package is to carry out the research and development of all the middleware components that comprise archiving part of the project, both assimilating original media and auto-generated data, indexing of the events data using federated approach, preparing data for immediate retrieval and supporting

users interaction. This includes scientific innovation to solve the challenges posed by each components objectives, as well as the implementation work required for the delivery of a concrete, functional middleware system. The main package objectives are:

  • Building a scalable system for archiving and maintaning complex digital media content, particularly
  • archiving a complex objects captured in WP1 and constructed in WP2
  • Fusion of all the media and metadata, and construction of complex event internal connections
  • Eff ective facet-based, federated search and retrieval of complex events
  • Insuring a long-term maintenance and liveness of the archive, supporting users input and collaboration
  • around it.

WP4 - User Requirements, Interaction and Applications

This WP will focus on the user side of the system - user requirements, user interaction and user evaluation. It will begin by generating a set of appropriate user scenarios that can guide the development of the system. Based on these use-cases, it will define the system requirements from the user’s perspective. Part of the system requirement definition will be defining the interaction scenarios of the user with the system. As a result of this work, an easy-to-access, ecient and user oriented ”portal” will be developed, as the user interface of the system. Once the system is complete, it will be evaluated based on these requirements and user feedback. This will assist in optimizing the system, in terms of functionality, usability and e ffectiveness.


WP5 - Dissemination and Technology Transfer

WP5 is concerned with dissemination, technology transfer and IPR strategy. The main objective of WP5 is to disseminate, exploit and communicate the achievements of inEven.


WP6 - Management

  • Planning, organising, directing and controlling the integrated e ort to achieve all the inEvent objectives,
    including all the RTD, exploitation, and training objectives described in the present document.
  • Optimisation of the impact of the project given the constraints of time schedule and budget.
