The personalization in E-learning systems has been the subject of many recent research efforts. While a large number of systems have been implemented, many of these systems allow the application of very few if not just one predefined personalization strategy. This is a constraint for providing effective E-learning experience and for rationalizing the(More)
Current Sign Language animation technologies based on virtual reality cannot generate automatically animations in which the signer associates locations in space with entities under discussion. The automatic spatial association of signs locations is closely related to the sign recognition process. Without sign signature extraction through motion analysis,(More)
It is well known that reading and writing capabilities of deaf persons are less than capabilities of hearing people, although they have the same basic mental abilities. The principal reason for the huge discrepancy between the skills of deaf and hearing persons is due to the socialization of the deaf. This fact, plus the inaccessibility of information(More)
—While the rapidly increasing number of users and applications running on Desktop Grid (DG) systems does demonstrate its inherent potential, current DG implementations follow the traditional master-worker paradigm and DG middlewares do not cooperate. To extend the DG architecture, we propose a novel system, called BonjourGrid, capable of 1) creating, for(More)
The extraordinary progresses of new technologies related to data processing and to Internet, offer real opportunities to a better life quality and in particular, to those that endure handicaps. In this context, our project aims to improve accessibility for deaf persons by using the technologies of information and communication. The objective was to design(More)
This paper proposes a decentralised system for managing Desktop Grid (DG). The idea is to bypass the main drawback of existing systems putting all the control on a single master that can fails. Here, each node can play alternatively the role of client or server. Our main contribution is to design the PastryGrid protocol (based on Pastry) for DG in order to(More)
