*2 PhD positions in logics and structural representations for semantic 
interpretation of videos and images*


These positions are taking place in the framework of the ANR project 
LOGIMA, a collaborative project between Ecole Centrale Paris, Telecom 
ParisTech and Université Paris 11. A short description of the project 
can be found there :_http://logima.gforge.inria.fr/doku.php_

The main objective of this project is to propose a new methodological 
approach for high level scene understanding which integrates the 
advantages of formal logics (description logics, graph logics, formal 
concept analysis), and quantitative or semi-quantitative representations 
and reasoning in the image domain.

The candidates are expected to work in one of the following research 
topics, which are actually investigated within the LOGIMA project:


    Model-based image understanding.


    Knowledge representation and reasoning for image understanding.


    Spatial reasoning under uncertainty.


    Exploiting the bipolarity feature in the domain of image interpretation.


    Exploiting the potential of graph based representations and grammars
    for structural scene recognition in images.

  * Non monotonic reasoning

The formal tools involved are mathematical morphology, description 
logics, formal concept analysis, bipolarity and fuzzy sets.

Based on the general framework of complete lattices and on mathematical 
morphology, we propose to associate these various formalisms that were 
quite disconnected until now, in order to propose new models and 
reasoning tools

The proposed methodological approach will also be illustrated on 
challenging image interpretation applications.

*Candidate profile: *

The ideal candidates should hold (or be close to) a Master degree in the 
field of computer science. Required skills include knowledge about 
logics, knowledge representation and reasoning with interests for image 
and video interpretation.

*Duration*:36 months

*Beginning*:september 2013.

*Application :*

Send your CV with recommendation letters, a cover letter, the list of 
master courses with the grades obtained and any other relevant documents 
by email to : celine.hudelot at ecp.fr <mailto:celine.hudelot at ecp.fr>, 
jamal.atif at lri.fr <mailto:jamal.atif at lri.fr> and 
isabelle.bloch at telecom-paristech.fr 
<mailto:isabelle.bloch at telecom-paristech.fr>

The recruitment will be done as soon as two excellent candidates are found.

*Location :*

One position is offered at the Applied Mathematics Laboratory of Ecole 
Centrale Paris in the LOGIMA Team 
and the other one at the Laboratory for Computer Science at Université 
Paris-Sud in the TAO Team (_http://tao.lri.fr/tiki-index.php_). Both 
positions imply a strong collaboration with the Laboratory for 
Communication and Processing of Information at Telecom Paristech
