One of the main characteristics of the Internet era we are living in, is the free and online availability of a huge amount of data. This data is of varied reliability and accuracy and exists in various forms and formats. Often, it is cross-referenced and linked to other data, forming a nexus of text, images, animation and audio enabled by hypertext and, recently, by the Web3.0 standard. Search engines can search text for keywords using algorithms of varied intelligence and with limited success. Searching images is a much more complex and computationally intensive task but some initial steps have already been made in this direction, mainly in face recognition. This paper aims to describe our proposed pipeline for integrating data available on Internet repositories and social media, such as photographs, animation and text to produce 3D models of archaeological monuments as well as enriching multimedia of cultural / archaeological interest with metadata and harvesting the end products to EUROPEANA. Our main goal is to enable historians, architects, archaeologists, urban planners and a liated professionals to reconstruct views of historical monuments from thousands of images oating around the web. © 2013 SPIE.

This paper presents the result of the work achieved in the frame of three successive European Projects, which aimed to build an innovative system to assist security managers in the crisis preparation, training and management phases. The iterative approach of the consortium is presented, as well as the results. A novel interactive and shared Common Operational Picture is proposed which has been validated by three large scale demonstrations. On-going and future work focusing on the security concepts and measures of building interiors is moreover presented. © 2014 IEEE. Source

The welding training is today a key process to answer to the manpower shortage existing in this domain. Unfortunately, this training is very expensive, hard to monitor and mostly human-based, so quite difficult to improve. Nevertheless, it is now mandatory to find new technologies to speed it up, to cut the training cost and enhance the training quality to give the trainer more flexibility. This position paper presents CS WAVE, the welding motion trainer. We will try to focus on the way this tool can be integrated in a training daily organisation and what is the best practice observed. The potential benefits, the feedbacks of the users (trainers and trainees), the various uses depending on the various training curriculum and the final acceptance or rejection of the systems will be studied and presented.

ISCRAM 2012 Conference Proceedings - 9th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management | Year: 2012
To face the urgent need to train strategic and operational managers in dealing with complex crises, we are researching and developing an innovative decision support system to be used for crisis management and interactive crisis training. This paper provides an overview of current decision-support systems, simulation software and other technologies specifically designed to serve crisis managers. These findings inform the design of a new interactive simulation technology system, where a 3D Common Operational Picture (COP) is shared between tactile digital whiteboard in the command center and mobile devices in the field. © 2012 ISCRAM.
