'Content networks and services for home users (CONTENT)'
Polish

The CONTENT Network of Excellence targets Content Delivery Networks for Home Users, as an integral part of Networked Audio-Visual Systems and Home Platforms. CONTENT aims to build the European Research Area in this important communication topic by integrating a group of experts with the purpose of taking forward the state of the art and increasing European leadership in Content Networks. The overall goal of the CONTENT Network-of-Excellence is to integrate the research efforts of the members to address the technical challenges at the different system levels to enable easy-to-install and easy-to-use AV services in and between homes.

In particular, the main technical objective will be to boost the potential of European Community Networking by improving Content Distribution infrastructures for the delivery of live (streaming) content and interactive stored content, and by integrating, in an open way, tools and mechanisms that would enable the curation of multimedia assets and their subsequent access for the benefit of the communities of users, producing a set of appropriate services for them, both in the context of the "long tail" or applied to (re-purposed) assets created by traditional broadcasters. The joint programme of activities aims at the creation of a self-standing virtual centre of excellence that should result in developing the necessary means for achieving a durable integration of the research capacities.

CONTENT will continue the idea initiated in E-NEXT of investing in the education of young researchers through the European Doctoral School of Advanced Topics In Networking (SATIN) to prepare the next generation of researchers for the European Research Area. CONTENT members draw considerable experience from the current FP-6 NoE E-NEXT, and will achieve these objectives through its focused Joint Research workpackage, network coordination, integration, spreading excellence and dissemination workpackages, and with guidance from an Industry Advisory Board.

Pracę zawodową rozpoczął już w okresie studiów (1996): w COMARCH S.A. na stanowisku Kierownika Działu Technologii Multimedialnych, a potem w COMARCH Multimedia Sp. z o.o. na stanowisku Prezesa Zarządu; od 1999 roku jest pracownikiem Katedry Telekomunikacji AGH. Do jego pierwszych obowiązków należało projektowanie i implementacja cyfrowych bibliotek wideo. W 2000 roku wyjechał z Polski na czteromiesięczne stypendium naukowe na Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Madryt, Hiszpania) gdzie przygotował pracę magisterską ("Implementation of the Recognition Engine’s Search Module in Multimedia Application"). Po powrocie do Polski został zatrudniony w Katedrze Telekomunikacji na stanowisku asystenta naukowo-dydaktycznego, a w 2006 roku, po obronie pracy doktorskiej ("Analiza możliwości budowy internetowych aplikacji dostępu do cyfrowych bibliotek wideo"), na stanowisku adiunkta. Jego aktualne zainteresowania badawcze koncentrują się wokół szeroko pojętych systemów przetwarzania i analizy danych multimedialnych, ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem Quality of Experience. Jest (współ-)autorem około 130 publikacji naukowych, z czego 23 stanowią publikacje w czasopismach z bazy JCR. Mikołaj Leszczuk uczy na poziomie studiów inżynierskich, magisterskich i doktoranckich/podyplomowych. Mikołaj Leszczuk był promotorem pomocnicznym 1 doktoranta i nadzorował (wypromował) około 40 studentów magisterskich różnych narodowości. Uczestniczył lub uczestniczy w ponad 20 dużych projektach naukowych 4PR, 5PR, 6PR, 7PR, Horyzont 2020, POIG, Kultura 2000, PHARE, eContent+, Eureka! i innych. W latach 2009-2014, był administratorem dużego, międzynarodowego projektu badawczego INDECT, dzieki któremu powstał zestaw rozwiązań do inteligentnej obserwacji i automatycznego wykrywania podejrzanych zachowań i przemocy w środowisku miejskim. Jest członkiem organizacji VQEG (Video Quality Experts Group, członek zarządu), IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) i GAMA (Gateway to Archives of Media Art). Współpracuje z organizacją VQiPS (Video Quality in Public Safety). Więcej informacji: http://www.linkedin.com/in/miklesz
