This thesis is part of a collaborative project to analyze the multimedia information that is published on the Internet about cultural festivals, either by professional or by the public. These data are diverse (text, images, videos) and published on various sources (twitter, blogs, forums, catalogs). The project aims at analyzing and structuring this information in order to better understand the public and the cultural practices, and to recombine them to build synthetic view of these collections. This thesis will focus on the aspects of video analysis and multimodal fusion.

This thesis will tackle two problems:

· to develop techniques for the automatic analysis of video content, so that the collected data may be categorized in predefined categories. This component will be used to structure the collections and better understand their content and their evolution.

· to study mechanisms to recombine the multimedia content, and build synthetic views of the collections. Several strategies will be studied, depending on whether these views are intended for professional users or for the general public.
