This proposal is available at:
   Title:Models and tools for annotating/analyzing live performances
Keywords:Document engineering, Knowledge engineering, Semantic Web, Linked
Open Data Environment:LIRIS UMR 5205 CNRS - http://liris.cnrs.fr, SILEX
Team - http://liris.cnrs.fr/silex situated in Lyon, France Duration:8
months, beginning in autumn 2014 Salary:~ 2200 € net per month

The “Spectacles en ligne” project aims firstly at building a rich annotated
corpus of live performances (i.e. dramas and operas, including video
captures of all rehearsals) and, secondly, at providing tools for analyzing
it and publishing it toward various audiences. The partners of the project
are IRI-Centre Pompidou, INRIA Grenoble, CERILAC - Paris 7, LIRIS, Ubicast,
théâtre des Célestins and Festival d'Aix.

The SILEX team has expertise in document/knowledge engineering as well as
semantic web technologies, and has defined a modeled-based approach for
annotating videos and generating hypervideos based on these annotations (

In the first stage of the project, rehearsals of a play and an opera have
been filmed and annotated, resulting in a rich corpus of videos and
annotations. The successful candidate will have to propose, and develop
together with our partners, an architecture for making this corpus
available to both the researchers involved in the project and the public.
This architecture will have to:

   - reuse as much as possible existing vocabularies and practices in use
   on the Linked Data Cloud for publishing video-related annotations and
   meta-data, and propose new ones if needed;
   - address in a consistent way the various needs of the different
   targeted users (for example, different researchers will use different
   formats or vocabularies; the public will not have access to all the data,
   - provide extensible means of visualizing and interacting with the video
   and the annotations, to support the usage scenarios that will emerge from
   the project.

The successful candidate is also expected to produce scientific papers
describing that research.

Candidates should have a PhD in Computer sciences, past experience (ideally
with publications) in Document engineering/Knowledge engineering, Semantic
Web and associated technologies. They should be fluent in English (written
and spoken). French speaking skills would be a plus.
