Models and Environments for Document-based Interaction and Authoring MEDIA
The MEDIA research lab is part of the School of Computer and Communication Sciences at the EPFL.
The lab is deeply involved in research and training activities that relate to complex structured documents and, their use through global information systems over the Internet.
The representation of electronic documents has moved away from the simple encoding practises of early usage, towards richer encoding that indicate the structure of the document as well as multimedia and metadata extensions. There has been a tendency towards developping and supporting standards for this task. XML (eXtended Markup Language), is one of the well-known of these standards and is currently supported by an increasing variety of related standards and tools that provide efficient management of document-centric and data-centric information on the Web.
Our research is about models, languages and methods that encompass the use of semi-structured data models, as processable units of information, in Web-based environments.
Offering new programming paradigms - based on rich user interfaces - for authoring and reusing structured information as well as supporting collaborative processes among nomadic users is of major concern.
