Abstract: The expansion of structured information in different applications introduces a new ambiguity in multimedia retrieval in semi-structured documents. We investigate in this paper the combination of textual and structural context for multimedia retrieval in XML document thus we present a indexing model which combines textual and structural information. We propose a geometric method who use implicitly of textual and structural context of XML elements and we are particularly interested by improve the effectiveness of various structural factors for multimedia retrieval. Using a geometric metric, we can represent structural information in XML document with a vector for each element. Given a textual query, our model lets us combine scores obtained from each sources of evidence and return a list of relevant retrieved multimedia element. Experimental evaluation is carried out using the INEX Ad Hoc Task 2007 and the Image CLEF Wikipedia Retrieval Task 2010. The results show that combination of scores of textual modality and structural modality significantly improves compared results of using a single modality.
