-------------------------------------------------- MediaEval 2018: Multimedia Evaluation Tasks Regular Registration Deadline: 30 June www.multimediaeval.org --------------------------------------------------

MediaEval (Benchmarking Initiative for Multimedia Evaluation) offers shared-tasks to the multimedia research community involving images, text, video, and audio/music. The tasks address cutting-edge multimedia challenges (multimedia retrieval, analysis, access and exploration) with a clear human or social aspect. Our larger aim is to promote reproducible research that makes multimedia a positive force for society.

Further information and the link for registration to participate in the tasks is available at: www.multimediaeval.org/mediaeval2018 Short descriptions of the tasks are below.

The first tasks start to release data in the last week of May, so we advise you to register as soon as possible. Regular registration will remain open through 30 June. Final data releases are in July. See data release deadlines for the individual tasks at www.multimediaeval.org/mediaeval2018

Task results will be presented at the MediaEval 2018 Workshop, 29-31 October 2018 near Nice, France. The workshop requires a separate registration. More information on the workshop will be posted to www.multimediaeval.org during the course of the summer.
