PROMISE is a Network of Excellence (contract no. 258191, http://www.promise-noe.eu/) which aims at advancing the experimental evaluation of complex multimedia and multilingual information systems in order to support the decision making process of individuals, commercial entities, and communities who develop, employ, and improve such complex systems. The overall goal of PROMISE is to deliver a unified environment where to collect data, knowledge, tools, methodologies, and bringing together the user communities, which are involved in the experimental evaluation. To this end, PROMISE will provide a virtual and open laboratory for conducting participative research and experimentation in which it will be possible to carry out, advance and bring automation into the evaluation and benchmarking of complex multimedia and multilingual information systems, by facilitating management and offering access, curation, preservation, re-use, analysis, visualization, and mining of the collected experimental data.
CULTURA and PROMISE will cooperate along the following action lines:
- Investigation of proper evaluation methodologies for adaptive services for digital cultural collections;
- Cooperation to support dissemination, training, and awareness events which promote the goals of both projects.
Further action lines will be added as the cooperation among the two projects goes on.
