Post-doctoral Position in Image Retrieval - ENST Paris, France

Post-doctoral position in Computer Vision at l'cole Nationale Suprieure
des Tlcommunications, Paris, France.
TSI Department

Topic: Image interpretation and retrieval.

A postdoctoral fellowship, in image annotation/retrieval and scene
understanding, is available at the TSI (Image, Speech and Learning group)
