MediaEval (http://www.multimediaeval.org) is a benchmarking initiative dedicated to evaluating new algorithms for multimedia access and retrieval. It emphasizes the 'multi' in multimedia and focuses on human and social aspects of multimedia tasks. MediaEval attracts participants who are interested in multimodal approaches to multimedia involving, e.g., speech recognition, visual analysis, music and audio analysis, user-contributed information (tags, comments, tweets), viewer affective response, social networks, geo-coordinates and non-linear video access.
The MediaEval 2013 season kicks off with the MediaEval 2013 Survey. The survey is used to collect your opinion on which tasks should be offered by MediaEval 2013. If you are interested in participating in MediaEval 2013, please fill out the survey:
The survey will take you about 5 minutes if you fill in only the main questions. There are 12 main questions, which are multiple choice questions that collect your opinion on each of the 12 tasks that have been proposed for MediaEval 2013. The survey will take you about 25 minutes if you choose to answer the additional questions and give comments. (We encourage you to answer the additional questions on the tasks that most interest you.)
The MediaEval 2013 task list will be finalized in late February and sign up for participation will open at the beginning of March. Please be sure to fill your email address in on the first page of the survey if you would like to receive a mail when sign up opens.
Our goal is to have the survey filled out by as many researchers as possible in the next two weeks---please pass the survey link along to colleagues in the field of multimedia who might be interested.
Note that the deadline for results submissions this year will be early to mid-September and the workshop will be held in October in Barcelona, coordinated with the timing of (but not overlapping) ACM Multimedia 2013 (http://acmmm13.org/).
