I was a visiting professor in Information Retrieval and Knowledge Management Research Lab of York University, Toronto, Canada, from September, 16th to October, 06 , 2011.
During my stay, I worked on the medical image retrieval research topic.

Past ActivitiesThe aim of my PhD was to investigate the use of XML structure in multimedia retrieval, particularly in context-based image retrieval. I proposed methods to represent multimedia elements:
I have proposed also a method to retrieve multimedia fragments using the multimedia elements and the document structure.
- the first one is based on implicit use of textual and structural context of multimedia elements. It consists of representing multimedia elements through their children, brother and ancestor elements.
- the second one makes an explicit use of both sources. It is based on an analogy between the XML document tree and an ontology. It consists of defining a measure to compute the participation degree of each textual node in the multimedia element representation. This measure is defined thanks to similarity measures applied on ontologies, and more precisely on those based on edge-counting measures between two concepts.
