The Multimedia Communications Department of EURECOM, in partnership with 
the travel service provider company AMADEUS, invites applications for a 
PhD position on multimedia indexing. The goal of the thesis is to study 
new techniques to organize large quantities of multimedia information, 
specifically images and videos, for improving services to travelers. 
This includes managing images and videos from providers as well as from 
users about places, locations, events, etc… The approach will be based 
on the most recent techniques in multimedia indexing, and will benefit 
from the strong research experience of EURECOM in this domain, joint to 
the industrial experience of AMADEUS.

We are looking for very good and motivated students, with a strong 
knowledge in image and video processing, statistical and probabilistic 
modeling, for the theoretical part, and a good C/C++ programming ability 
for the experimental part. English is required. The successful candidate 
will be employed by AMADEUS in Sophia Antipolis, and will strongly 
interact with the researchers at EURECOM.

Applicants should email a resume, letter of motivation, and all relevant 
information to.
