Abstract: In this work we propose a new model for multimedia documents, suitable for e-government applications, that provides different representations of the same multimedia contents, allowing to solve open problems related to the technology evolution, different documental format and access rights. The model constitutes the starting point for an information system capable of managing documental streams integrating and processing different multimedia data types and providing facilities for indexing, storage and retrieval, together with long-term preservation strategies. We have implemented a prototypal version of the system that realises the described Information Retrieval and Presentation tasks for juridical documents.

Keywords: semantic management; e-government documentation; information retrieval; information extraction; knowledge engineering; semantic retrieval; long-term preservation; multimedia documents; document preservation; electronic government; information systems.
