    Implementation of a Text Structurer for Automatically Generated Multilingual Texts,
    In this paper we address the development and implementation of the strategical component of a system that automatically generates multilingual texts in the administrative domain. The component, called Text Structurer, selects from the knowledge base the relevant information to be communicated and optimally builds – for three output languages (English, Italian and German) – the communicative (intentional) and rhetorical structure of the final text. It also chooses some of the cohesive devices (anaphora and thematic progression) that improve the quality of the output draft,

    A Survey on Automatic Indexing of Audio - Video Data,
    Today considerable amount of audio-video data in multimedia databases requires sophisticated indices for its effective use. Manual indexing is the more effective method to do this, but it is also the slowest and the more expensive. Automated methods have then to be developed. This paper surveys several approaches and algorithms that have been recently proposed to help in automatically structuring audio-visual data, both for annotation and access,

    A Discussion on Augmenting and Executing SharedPlans for Multimodal Communication,
    The adoption of SharedPlans as a basis for multimodal dialogues is discussed. An extension to the modal of plan augmentation for discourse is proposed so that it applies for multimodal interaction. The proposed process exploits SharedPlans and Adjacency Pairs in conjuction to account for global and local collaboration. Finally, multmedia coordination is taken into account. An example is followed throghout the paper to make the consequences of the proposal more concrete,

    Retrieval by Image Content for Video and Image Databases: A Survey,
    Large databases of images and video data are now available. The management and exploitation of these new media databases require extensions of the traditional query mechanisms developed for accessing textual information. This survey reviews some recent works on the management of video and image data,

    Viewpoint Dependence in Face Recognition,
    This paper analyzes the problem of face recognition as a cognitive process. Specifically, it studies the influence of the angle from which the face to recognize is observed. Following the examination of studies that considered this problem in the past, two psychophysical experiments are presented that seek to further clarify the problem. It is shown that the subject gives different responses according to target viewpoint, with the surest and most rapid recognition coming from observation of the right-hand side of the face.,
