CHORUS FP7 (2010-2012)

The CHORUS (European coordination action on Audio-Visual Media Search) project was coordinated by JCP consulting.
Other partners were CERTH-ITI (Greece), University of Trento (Italy), HES-SO (Switzerland), Technicolor (France), Vienna University of Technology (Austria), Engineering Ingegneria Informatica SPA (Italy), JRC Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (EU). CHORUS+ objective is to coordinate national and international projects and initiatives in the Search-engine domain and to extend this Coordination in non-European countries. ZENITH actively participated to this action, Alexis Joly being member of the steering comittee and leader of a work package. We particularly promoted scientific data as an essential challenge to be addressed by this community through the co-organization of international events (CBMI 2012 panel, ImageCLEF 2012, international workshop on search computing) and discussions with leaders of European projects belonging to the cluster of the coordination action. Besides, we did work on technology transfer issues and the potential of benchmarking campaigns as a tool to foster it (conduction of a survey of about hundred people from both academy and industry, organization of a think-tank with about 20 stakeholders, writing of a recommendation report for the EU commission).
