Semantic 3D

Semantics for Interactive 3D Content 

Semantic 3D is a long-term research project performed at the Department of Information Technology and the VR Lab at the Poznań University of Economics and Business. The project aims at the development of new scientific solutions in the domain of distributed systems based on 3D interactive VR/AR content and services. 

To stimulate creation of VR/AR applications, it is necessary to develop techniques that enable social co-creation of content and services by a large groups of „prosumers” (users-producers), and to facilitate access to VR/AR content and services anytime and anywhere – as it is now the case of standard web pages. However, creation, searching and composition of distributed three-dimensional interactive VR/AR content and services is much more complex than classic two-dimensional web pages. This is due to the fact that relationships between components of an interactive three-dimensional virtual scene may include, in addition to its meaning and form of presentation, also spatial, temporal, structural, logical, and behavioral aspects. 

Ed2.0Work Network

European network for the integration of Web2.0 in education and work

EdWeb2Work is a European Union funded education project that has two missions:

  • To create a network that spans education and the world of work and is designed to improve the use of Web2.0 tools in both fields.
  • To create a set of tools for the empirical evaluation of Web2.0 tools.

The project will create a network between stakeholders in the education and work sectors that will examine how both should be using Web2.0 in the education and work environments.


IT-SOA: Nowe technologie informacyjne dla elektronicznej gospodarki i społeczeństwa infromacyjnego oparte na paradygmacie SOA"ITSOA - New information technologies for electronic economy and information society based on service-oriented architecture"

The goal of the project is to exploit modern information technologies from the area of distributed systems. Such techologies, based on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) paradigm, support computerized business process management as well as development of service platforms and IT infrastructure for e-Science. The central point of this approach is to automatize access to both individual services and complex business processes based on these services. Key challenges in this scope include: development of proper service description languages; enabling providers to publish their services and clients to search for the services they require; creation of semantics-based protocols for service composition in the framework of complex and potentially long-running business processes.


Augmented Representation of Cultural ObjectsARCO is a unique solution for virtual management creation and management. ARCO System - a result of an international cooperation of scientists and museum staff - covers entire chain of virtual museum creation. From cultural objects digitalization, through their refinement, storage, and collection management, up to presentation in various interfaces: Web pages, 3D scenes, virtual reality environments or within augmented reality interfaces.


European Resource Centre for Web2.0 EducationWork on Web2.0ERC project by DIT, PUE team

In the period of January 2010 – December 2011, the team of the Department of Information Technology (DIT) at the Poznan University of Economics (PUE) worked on the European project entitled “European Resource Centre for Web2.0 Education”. The project aimed at creating a simple to use and secure Web2.0 environment for teachers and students to use in daily educational activities and popularisation of the use of Web2.0 tools and technologies in education.
During the final evaluation by the European Commission, the project has been awarded an excellent score of 9/10 points. 

RMV method

The work within the project is conducted within the Polish National Science Center research grant for young researches without the Ph.D. degree, project "Recommendation method RMV for partner and service selection in virtual organization breeding environments based on process mining techniques".

In this project a novel method for supporting partner and service selection processes based on process mining techniques is proposed. The challenge and scientific goal is to analyze past instances of collaborative processes of partner and service selection, and use this knowledge to support current and future instances. The method allows activity patterns in various instances of partner and service selection processes to be identified as repeatable patterns occurring in particular contexts. Such patterns can be used for recommendation of activities. This provides an opportunity for better computer support of collaborative processes (e.g. by automation of activity patterns) leading to more efficient and effective realization of partner and service selection process goals. Within the project, efficient algorithms will be designed and implemented, namely: activity pattern identification, context modeling and analysis, and activity recommendations.

UbiqUI - Ubiquitous mobile user interfaces for industrial monitoring and control applications.
ABB Software Research Grant

The aim of this project is to develop a solution that provides an efficient user interface of industrial monitoring and control applications on any device and allows seamlessmigration of the UI from one device to another. Solution that is future proof, i.e. it allows proper presentation of the user interface on devices that will emerge in the future and will introduce form factors and capabilities that were not known beforehand.
