 GRENOBLE Group Research Themes: Expressing formalised knowledge on a computer is useful, not Contact : especially for the need of the computer, but for communication. In Jérôme EUZENAT future information systems, formalised knowledge will be massively exchanged. The goal of Exmo is the development of theoretical and Phone : +33 (0)4 76 61 53 66 software tools for enabling interoperability in formalised knowledge exchange. Exmo contributes to an emerging field called the semantic Permanent Members : web which blends the communication capabilities of the web with Jérôme EUZENAT (DR INRIA) knowledge representation. Jérôme DAVID (MCF UPMF)) We currently build on our experience of alignments as representing 4 post-doctoral the relationships between two ontologies on the semantic web. researchers Ontology alignments express correspondences between entities in two ontologies. They allow maximising sharing on the semantic web: 1 PhD Students various algorithms can produce alignments and various uses can be made of these alignments. Such alignments can be used for generating knowledge transformations (or any other kind of mediators) that will be used for interoperating. In order to guarantee properties of these transformations, we can consider the properties of alignments and generate transformations preserving them. Our current roadmap focusses on the design of an alignment Laboratoire d’Informatique de Grenoble infrastructure and on the investigation of alignment properties (and Maison Jean Kuntzmann especially semantic properties) when they are used for reconciling 110 avenue de la Chimie ontologies.

 Multi Agent Systems Group LIG


 GRENOBLE Group Research Themes: The central issue to be resolved concerns the relationship between Contact : the user and the multi-agent system. Currently, the user is not at the Yves DEMAZEAU heart of the design of systems that are targeted for him or her. Phone : +33 (0)4 76 51 46 43 Instead, the user is seen just as a consumer of available products that may be, to a greater or lesser extent, customizable. This naturally results in problems of trust, and leads to security and legal Permanent Membres : problems from using agents. We support the idea of a future where real and virtual worlds interpenetrate and melt into one. The Yves DEMAZEAU (DR CNRS) consequences range from the fusion of virtual reality and real Catherine GARBAY (DR CNRS) Sylvie PESTY (PR UPMF) virtuality to the mutual acceptance of artificial and human agents; Julie DUGDALE (MCF UPMF) from the disappearance of interactional interfaces towards a dynamic Humbert FIORINO (MCF UJF) management of social space; from mere production tools towards tools destined for the creation and revival of interactive and real time applications. It should be possible for the user to be the designer of a 6 PhD Students MAS application, interacting with his environment. We believe that systems should not simply be usable, which was the concern twenty years ago, or useful, which was the concern of the last ten years. Instead we believe these systems should actually be used, and used on a large scale. Laboratoire d’Informatique In 2007-2010 the group focuses on User-Centred Multi-Agent de Grenoble Systems. Maison Jean Kuntzmann 110 avenue de la Chimie Contribution to the WI Project: BP53 38041 GRENOBLE Cedex 09 The group is participating to WP2 Subproject Web and Services.

This aims at de Grenoble addressing issues that arise when designers want to assemble pieces of Information Maison Jean Kuntzmann Systems accessible by means of web services whose interfaces are incompatible on both 110 avenue de la Chimie functional and non-functional dimensions of their interfaces. Specifically, we have been BP53 working on: 38041 GRENOBLE Cedex 09 - Transactional properties of a composition of services: services that enter into France compositions with other services may have transactional properties, especially those in Tél : +33 (0)4 76 51 43 61 the broad area of resource management (e.g. booking services). These transactional properties may be exploited in order to derive composite services which themselves exhibit certain transactional properties. - Compatibility of service interactions: interactions between two applications encapsulated into Web services consist in series of message exchanges that must conform to service interfaces. The issues we are interested in are those that arise when interactions between two services (a client and a provider) fail because their interfaces are incompatible. Contribution to the WI Project: MRIM group members have been contributed to Web and Services, Web and Context, and Web and Mediation sub-projects of the WP2.

Today, access to information is ubiquitous. Consequently, these systems are to be A. LBATH, PR UJF deployed in heterogeneous and mobile environments. We address these problems through P. DAVOINE, MCF INPG the notion of adaptation. J. GENSEL, PR UPMF H. MARTIN, PR UJF Our approach consists in taking into account the diversity of users (in terms of their M. VILLANOVA, MCF UPMF needs, priorities, levels of understanding, etc.) and various potential contexts of use (work D. ZIEBELIN, PR UJF stations, mobile phones, fixed or variable location, Web, etc.), in order to propose both adapted services and adapted information to users in terms of contents and presentation. 5 PhD Students Our research encompasses the conceptualization and development of middleware and 2 postdoc frameworks relying on the possibilities of object-oriented knowledge systems and structured or semi-structured formalisms (objects, xml, ontologies…), as well as Web technologies (Web mapping, Web services…). Our research takes place in the area of Geographic Information Systems (interactive cartography, spatial analysis, mobile GIS, location-based services), a domain of research known as geomatics, with applications in the field of natural risks prevention.

 TIMC – IMAG GRENOBLE et de la Complexité - Informatique, Mathématiques et Applications, Grenoble Group Research Themes : Knowledge Management is the theme which best synthesizes the Contact : scientific activity of the Osiris team. The initial research work on a Michel SIMONET data model unifying databases and knowledge bases has given its Phone : +33 (0)4 56 52 00 89 name to the group. Ontologies have since become a major research theme, enlightening the other research themes of the group. The design of Information Systems is guided by an ontological Permanent Members : model which enables the user to express his/her view of the application domain in a direct way, close to his/her way of thinking. Ana SIMONET (MCF UPMF) This is opposed to the current approach in object models which Michel SIMONET (CR CNRS) Patrick PALMER (MCF UPMF) imposes prior and implicit choices of representation. Integration of existing systems implies first to perform reverse engineering of databases, which generally evolve in an uncontrolled and unspecified manner, without guaranteeing their global 3 PhD Students consistency. Ontologies are at the very heart of this process, as a support to restore a high-level view from a present situation which has deteriorated conceptually over the years. Finally, an Osiris knowledge base is a direct implementation of an ontology for decision aid purposes. Contribution to the WI Project TIMC-IMAG Sub-project MIRO: Multilingual Information Retrieval guided by Faculté de Médecine Ontologies 38700 LA TRONCHE France Tél : +33 (0)4 56 52 01 08 Sharing of the experience of management of ontologies and their application to multilingual semantic annotation and retrieval in the IP project NOESIS (6th FP). In this project, dedicated to the management and visualization of medical knowledge, the Osiris team designed an environment for the design and the multilingual enrichment of ontologies from texts. This was applied to the enrichment of an ontology of the cardiovascular domain in five languages. A PhD thesis on a multilingual concept-based terminology of the ordinary language of lay people was also presented in the course of the WI project. The objective of this work is to help lay people find electronic resources such as documents or web pages by using their mother tongue and with everyday words, e.g., bruise for haematoma or hair loss for alopecia.

The challenge is to propose and provide the user with a platform where his/her privacy is preserved while sharing personal data and expecting an increased tailored interaction with the system. The group is co-leading the Web Intelligence Project, the WP2 subproject Web and Trust and WP3 related to Education/curriculum on Web Intelligence.

A multi-agent system is a set of intelligent agents which operate in a common environment, which interact and pursue a set of Permanent Members : goals or a set of actions. Michel OCCELLO (PR UPMF) Works are focused on the concept of system analysis that can be Jean-Luc KONING (PR INP) viewed following different axis, either as the first phase of the design Damien GENTHIAL (MCF UPMF) process of a new system or as the process of evaluation of an Jean-Paul JAMONT (MCF UPMF) existing system. These axis are today the two main missing items we André LAGREZE (MCF UPMF) need to improve to cover properly the life cycle of multi-agent Annabelle MERCIER (MCF UPMF) systems development. 4 PhD Students The aim, among other things, is to propose models, formalisms and a framework for the engineering of open complex systems based on the multi-agent concept. A specific effort is made in direction of validation and simulation techniques to meet the specification requirements of most critical applications (Embedded systems, Internet services…) Laboratoire de Conception Contribution to the WI Project: et d'Intégration des Systèmes Sub-projects: Web and Services - Web and Context 50, rue Barthélémy de Laffemas In the WI context applications (electronic commerce, collaborative BP54 information systems …) can be viewed as artificial complex systems. 26902 VALENCE Cedex 09 France Software have a lot of components with autonomous behaviours. Tél : +33 (0)4 75 75 94 49 These systems are collections of open software entities dynamically interacting by exchanging knowledge and services. Our contribution is situated in the "Web and Services" and "Web and Context" themes. We apply our approach to Web services dynamic composition. Up to now web services composition remain too static to face the Internet dynamicity. It would be profitable to adapt the composition in function of execution events taking into account user preferences. We propose to employ recursive multiagent systems able to make the integration of both semantic properties (traducing user preferences) and a dynamic execution adaptation.
