    We present a generic model for multimodal information retrieval, leveraging different information sources to improve the effectiveness of a retrieval system. The proposed method is able to take into account both explicit and latent semantics present in the data and can be used to answer complex queries, not currently answerable neither by document retrieval systems, nor by semantic web systems. By providing a hybrid approach combining IR and structured search techniques, we prepare a framework applicable to multimodal data collections. To test its effectiveness, we instantiate the model for an image retrieval task.
