Visual information retrieval (VIR) is an active and vibrant research area, which attempts at providing means for organizing, indexing, annotating, and retrieving visual information (images and videos) from large, unstructured repositories. The goal of VIR is to retrieve matches ranked by their relevance to a given query, which is often expressed as an example image and/or a series of keywords. During its early years (1995-2000), the research efforts were dominated by content-based approaches contributed primarily by the image and video processing community. During the past decade, it was widely recognized that the challenges imposed by the lack of coincidence between an image's visual contents and its semantic interpretation, also known as semantic gap, required a clever use of textual metadata (in addition to information extracted from the image's pixel contents) to make image and video retrieval solutions efficient and effective. The need to bridge (or at least narrow) the semantic gap has been one of the driving forces behind current VIR research. Additionally, other related research problems and market opportunities have started to emerge, offering a broad range of exciting problems for computer scientists and engineers to work on. In this introductory book, we focus on a subset of VIR problems where the media consists of images, and the indexing and retrieval methods are based on the pixel contents of those images -- an approach known as content-based image retrieval (CBIR). We present an implementation-oriented overview of CBIR concepts, techniques, algorithms, and figures of merit. Most chapters are supported by examples written in Java, using Lucene (an open-source Java-based indexing and search implementation) and LIRE (Lucene Image REtrieval), an open-source Java-based library for CBIR.

The essays in this volume are situated in French and Australian contexts and focus on texts linking language and visual images. There is an emerging debate in universities concerning the interpretation of images, whether in the field of aesthetics, politics or technology. The contributors focus on images ranging from photography to maps, films, paintings and computer games. In addition they consider relations between genders and nations, as understood in particular historical or semiological contexts. Geographic and disciplinary boundaries are consciously transgressed and blurred, so that a new interdisciplinary dialogue between written texts and visual arts emerges. Ce recueil d'essais, situe dans le contexte d'echanges franco-australiens, a pour objet les liens entre images et langage sur le plan du discours. L'interpretation du visuel fait l'objet d'un debat emergeant dans les universites, que ce soit dans le domaine de l'esthetique, du politique ou de la technologie. Les contributions analysent des images allant de la photographie, aux jeux multimedia en passant par les cartes, le cinema et la peinture. Par ailleurs, elles interrogent les relations tant au niveau de l'individu que des nations dans des contextes historiques et semiologiques specifiques. Les contributeurs traversent les frontieres disciplinaires et geographiques, de facon a susciter un nouveau dialogue interdisciplinaire entre textes et arts visuels."

“To open a book is ever to go on a voyage of discovery. The anchor is up, and you are adrift on the unknown” (Edward Thomas); “No le pide nada a usted el cuerpo, querido lector. Pero ¿en dónde vive?” (Roberto Arlt); “It is childish to suppose that a hundred books can be named as those which are the best for each and every one. The simplest experience of the world proves that a work of great excellence may deeply move one person, while it leaves another untouched; and that a book which has influenced one strongly in one's youth may lose such influence over one's later years. There is practically nothing that every man can read at every time...” (Georg Brandes)

Ce recueil bilingue consacré à l'écrivain canadien Margaret Atwood, reconnue comme l'une des figures dominantes de la littérature d'expression anglaise, contient l'intervention qu'elle a prononcée à Rennes en novembre 1998 sur son roman The Handmaid's Tale (La Servante écarlate) et sur le genre auquel il appartient. Le roman, inscrit aux programmes 1999 du CAPES et de l'Agrégation d'anglais, a été l'un des plus grands succès littéraires des années 80 aux Etats-Unis, au Canada et en Grande-Bretagne. Utopie, dystopie, satire, ou fiction spéculative, ce texte au scénario terrifiant s'inscrit à l'intérieur du courant postmoderne. Cet ouvrage rassemble des études du roman qui ont été présentées en décembre 1998 au Colloque Margaret Atwood organisé par le Centre d'Etudes Canadiennes de Rennes. Les auteurs analysent le texte sous différents éclairages : ils explorent les rapports entre littérature et société, politique et poétique, langage et organisation de la cité, et examinent les stratégies de détournement mises en œuvre. This bilingual collection devoted to Canadian writer Margaret Atwood, one of the best-known figures in the field of English language literature, contains the address that she pronounced in Rennes in November 1998 on her novel The Handmaid's Tale - one of the greatest literary successes of the 80's in the United States, Canada, and Great Britain - as well as on the genre to which it belongs. Whether it be a utopia, dystopia, satire, or else speculative fiction, the text with its terrifying scenario belongs to the postmodemist movement. This volume brings together studies of the novel that were presented in December 1998 at the Margaret Atwood Conference organised by die Centre d'Etudes Canadiennes of Rennes. The authors analyse the work from different perspectives - they explore the relationship between literature and society, politics and poetics, communication and community, and they study the strategies of resistance and displacement set up by the writer.

Les orientations institutionnelles les plus récentes concernant les apprentissages à l'école maternelle donnent la priorité à la maîtrise de la langue orale et écrite. Parents et enseignants ne sont toutefois pas suffisamment informés des conditions dans lesquelles l'enfant de 2 à 6 ans est capable d'apprendre à lire. C'est pourquoi l'auteur a désiré compléter, actualiser son travail de recherche approfondie sur l'apprentissage de la lecture à l'école maternelle. Les lecteurs trouveront donc dans cet ouvrage de quoi connaître et analyser les textes législatifs à ce sujet, de quoi clarifier et comprendre les mécanismes complexes d'ordre psychologique et pédagogique que cet apprentissage met en jeu, de quoi être convaincus de l'efficacité d'une pédagogie différenciée susceptible de prévenir même les troubles de l'apprentissage (dyslexie, dissynopsie), de l'efficacité relative, mais non négligeable, de l'utilisation des nouvelles technologies (ordinateur, internet...). Ils disposeront ainsi de toutes les informations théoriques et des outils pratiques pour mettre en place très tôt un véritable apprentissage de la lecture. Ces conditions étant comprises et vraiment appliquées, nul ne pourra alors ignorer le résultat heureux qui s'ensuit pour les enfants sur les plans cognitif, affectif... et pour la suite de leur scolarité au cours préparatoire.

Au lecteur d'aujourd'hui curieux de l'histoire de la lecture, cet ouvrage sur les pratiques de lecture dans le Quebec du XIXe siecle se revelera aussi instructif que depaysant. Les lieux et les moments de lecture stimulent l'imagination (en exil, sur un bateau-vapeur, le dimanche ou tard dans la nuit), de meme que les sources d'approvisionnement: chez le libraire Fabre a Montreal, chez Bossange a Paris, chez les bouquinistes des quais de la Seine, dans la bibliotheque familiale. Indispensable.
