MediaEval 2015 Multimedia Evaluation Benchmark
Call for Task Proposals
Deadline: 22 December 2014

MediaEval is a benchmarking initiative dedicated to developing and 
evaluating new algorithms and technologies for multimedia access and 
retrieval. It offers tasks to the research community that related to 
human and social aspects of multimedia. MediaEval emphasizes the 'multi' 
in multimedia and seeks tasks involving multiple modalities, including 
speech, audio, visual content, tags, users, and context.

MediaEval is now calling for proposals for tasks to run in the 2015 
benchmarking season. The proposal consists of a description of the 
motivation for the task, and challenges that task participants must 
address, as well as information on the data and evaluation methodology 
to be used. The proposal also includes a statement of how the task is 
related to MediaEval (i.e., its human or social component), and how it 
extends the state of the art in an area related to multimedia indexing, 
search or other technologies that support users in accessing multimedia 

For more detailed information about the content of the task proposal, 
please see:

Task proposals are chosen on the basis of their feasibility, their match 
with the topical focus of MediaEval, and also according to the outcome 
of a survey circulated to the wider multimedia research community. First 
data release for MediaEval 2015 tasks is due May 1, and the MediaEval 
workshop for participants to report task outcomes will be held 14-15 
September in Germany (satellite event of Interspeech 2015).
