MediaEval 2015 Multimedia Benchmark
Call for Survey Participation

The MediaEval 2015 season kicks off with the MediaEval Multimedia 
Benchmark Task Survey. The survey collects the input of the research 
community about which challenges should be offered by MediaEval in 2015.

The survey can be found at:

Please add your email address to the survey, in order to receive more 
information specifically about 2015.

MediaEval ( 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, audio analysis, music and musical scores, user-contributed 
information (tags, comments), viewer affective response, social 
networks, user privacy, geo-coordinates and crowdsourcing.

The survey asks you questions about the 13 tasks that have been proposed 
for MediaEval 2015. It will take you about 5 minutes if you fill in only 
the main questions. It will take about 30 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. 
Your answers contribute to decisions than are made about the design and 
implementation of the tasks.

The MediaEval 2015 task list will be finalized and sign up for 
participation will open at the end of February. 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 three 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 the end 
of August. The MediaEval 2015 workshop will be held 14-15 September near 
Dresden, Germany. It is a satellite event of Interspeech 2015, which 
takes place in Dresden.
