PhD Scholarship in Real-Time Multimedia Event Processing in Smart Cities, Ireland


Information sources of today produce a significant proportion of data that is non-structured in nature. Images from mobile cameras, sounds and voices are all examples of data that is increasing in volume and variety. Such big data represents an opportunity for applications such as urban planning, traffic management, and energy efficient smart lighting. But it also forms a challenge to current information processing paradigms, as it needs to be processed automatically in real-time in addition to other structured and semi-structured sources to reach situation awareness of interest.

The PhD candidate is expected to develop novel models for processing event data that can account for multimedia events data at the middleware layer, new language and semantic models for multimedia event processing and analytics, and scalable processing and optimization matching and routing architectures and algorithms. The candidate is also expected to ground the work in current state-of-the-art in the middleware and event processing research and come up with scientifically valid evaluation datasets and frameworks.

The PhD candidate should have:

  • Four years Bachelor’s degree or Master’s Degree in Computer Science or equivalent.
  • Good technical skills and previous experience with stream processing, distributed systems, middleware systems, Internet of Things, or real-time processing is a bonus.
  • Good knowledge of one or more of the following topics: computer vision, image processing, artificial intelligence, ontologies, statistical and distributional semantics, RDF, semantic web and relevant topics is a bonus.


The PhD fellowship offers for the successful candidate an annual stipend of €18,000 tax-free plus course fees and conference travel when presenting
