Please forward to all possible interested person


The INRIA GRAVITÉ project in collaboration with LaBRI (CNRS) is offering 
a PhD position focusing on the visual and interactive exploration of
semantic networks.

The PhD project takes place within the ANR TANGUY project headed by 
Thalès Communications and in collaboration with Xerox (XRCE Grenoble)
and the law firm FIDAL. The project aims at designing a methodology to 
support the incremental construction and easy use of semantic networks.
The development of a (prototype) system should help law experts to deal 
with large document collections from which potential facts have to be
identified, extracted, organized and ultimately validated or annotated.

Starting from valid pieces of information extracted from text document 
(Xerox expertise), our goal is to offer adapted mechanisms to visualize,
navigate and annotate all this information. The construction of a 
network of facts should follow from semantic proximity between pieces of
information or from users’ knowledge. As a consequence, the interactive 
navigation of the network can exploit available results in graph
visualization which is at the heart of our INRIA team.
