Armelle Natacha Ndjafa: Design and implementation of a dataspace management system. Application to the medical domain.


The heterogeneous and distributed mix of various data sources nowadays requires intelligent management systems in order to provide a unified view over such a data. The research challenge motivating this work is faced by the vision of dataspaces which main idea is to abstract from the underlying data source structures by providing a system managing various and heterogeneous data as single information data source. The dataspace concepts are presented as a vision; however their implementation particularly in the medical domain opens new research challenges that include the management of multimedia data in a distributed environment. At this end we will present the use of The MPEG Query Format (MPQF, part 12 of MPEG-7) as the query language in our dataspace system and present the first steps in the implementation of such a system.
