 PCRDT N6 / Projet IP CITY / Appel compétitif pour adjoindre un nouveau partenaire au projet / date limite 2 mai

Madame, monsieur

Dans le cadre des IP du VI PCRDT, thématique IST, certains projets intégrés
avaient la possibilité, au cours de l'avancement des travaux, d'ajouter un
nouveau partenaire au consortium. C'est une occasion particulièrement
intéressante pour une PME qui veut participer à un projet sans supporter tous
les coûts de montage d'un projet initial.

Le projet "IP city" lance ce genre d'appel.

Vous  trouverez ci-dessous tous les détails Y COMPRIS LA PERSONNE DU PROJET A

Il est INUTILE de faire un reply à cet appel. Vous devez contacter LE

Competitive Call for an Additional Project Partner

IPCity (FP-2004-IST-4-27571) is an EU funded Sixth Framework program
Project on Interaction and Presence in Urban Environments. The research aim of
the IPCity project is to investigate analytical and technological
approaches to
presence in real life settings using mixed reality (MR).

After the first year of this project, the need for computer vision-based user
interfaces was identified which should include technology for computer-based
interaction with physical maps and map/model-based tracking. The project is
looking for an additional partner with outstanding computer vision and
augmented reality expertise who is able to develop core technology in these

The required technologies are summarized as follows:

1. Augmenting paper maps: for urban planning situations, paper maps are
appropriate because they provide a high-resolution, yet large-scale view of
environment. However, these maps lack dynamical information such as locations
of moving vehicles or simulation results. An augmented map should be developed
which combines both static information on physical maps and dynamical
information using projector-based augmentation information.

2. Handheld map tracking: similar to the augmented paper maps, a portable map
tracking algorithm should be developed which allows augmentation on handheld
devices rather than direct augmentation on physical maps.

3. Model-based outdoor tracking: we are looking for robust model-based outdoor
tracking algorithms which are complementary to GPS and INS tracking. Based on
rapid acquisition techniques of 3D models of the environment, robust tracking
should be developed which runs on handheld devices (i.e. ultra-mobile PCs,

These technologies require basic research and should at least be available for
two different showcases in the project. The integration into showcases used
end-user evaluation requires solutions that perform at frame rate and with
satisfying robustness.

Restrictions on participation: for the proposed tasks we search for excellent
research partners with outstanding scientific reputation in the field of
computer vision-based user interfaces and mixed reality.

Despite existing regulations and documents, the electronic proposal submission
system (EPSS) currently does not allow for electronic submission of fp6
competitive call proposals.

Thus please submit your proposal on paper to the contact given below.

We are available to answer any specific question related to elements of the
consortium agreement. The consortium agreement will be given to the selected
proposer in the negotiation phase.

Expected duration of participation: 

from July 2007 till December 2009
(30 months)

Maximum funding:  200.000-, 
split in categories
research-, demonstration-, trainingand management costs.

Deadline: May 2, 2007 - 17h00 Brussels time
