We describe in this paper the MUMIS Project (Multimedia Indexing and Searching Environment) and show the role linguistically motivated annotations, coupled with domain-specific information, can play for the indexing and the searching of multimedia (and multilingual) data. MUMIS develops and integrates base technologies, demonstrated within a laboratory prototype, to support automated multimedia indexing and to facilitate search and retrieval from multimedia databases. The project will demonstrate that innovative technology components can operate on multilingual, multisource, and multimodal information and create a meaningful and queryable database.
