  • Good afternoon, Ghislain Sillaume, European project coordinator of the CVCE CVCE is an interdisciplinary research and documentation centre working on the European integration process. Active in SSH (contemporary history, European law, political science and economics) and ICT calls (Digital humanities).
  • Fact sheet of the ASSETS project 2 years -> Alignment with Europeana needs Engineering -> Big IT Italian software company Main objectives of the project: Advanced services –> e.g. Search images by similarity, ranking algorithm Enriched metadata -> e.g. Automatic classification Multimedia document -> e.g. Audio-visual material (1/2 To)
  • Engineering – ensuring the general coordination of the project Austrian Institute of Technology - ensuring the coordination of the technical work CVCE – ensuring the coordination of the provision of content, metadata and more (e.g. logs, training sets) Europeana office as a central actor of the project both contributing and providing feedback on advancement.
  • 4 services are in operation at the Europeana portal: query log analysis, metadata-based ranking, query suggestion and image similarity search The project also organise a Hackathon just before the final review: reusing ASSETS services and external tools like the JEX Eurovoc indexer for automatic classification of documents.
  • The project did work on a replicated version of the Europeana portal where he did implement, test and evaluate all the services of the project. All the source code of the project is available online using traditional development tools (version control, bug tracking…).
  • Main deliverable for the CVCE (excepting provided content and metadata) is a report that compiles the experience of the ten content providers of the project.
  • The Europeana Network is an open forum for experts across Europe that works together and share their experience: Sample of the end-user research group who thinks about sharing web analytics to have a better understanding of users behaviours and needs.
  • Europeana could be an instrument for enriching metadata and getting them back in your system. NDA: need to get a document signed by the 24 partners.
  • A European project is above all a human adventure and a team of people from different countries and fields working together as a united group.
