Idiap Research Institute, Martigny, Switzerland
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position at Idiap
in multimedia retrieval, recommender systems, and multimedia summarization.

project (Automatic Recommendation of Lectures and Snippets) funded by
the Swiss National Science Foundation through the IM2 NCCR (www.im2.ch),
in collaboration with Klewel SA (www.klewel.com).
The postdoc will develop a system for multimedia recommendation from the
Klewel archive of lectures, taking advantage also of previous work at

short multimedia summaries of the lectures.
