VAST 2007 CONTEST    
Visual Analytics Contest 
www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/VASTcontest07 

The contest is a submission category of the 
IEEE Symposium on VISUAL ANALYTICS SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY 2007 
http://conferences.computer.org/vast/vast2007  

--- VAST 2007 Contest ---
 
The purpose of the CONTEST is to promote the development of benchmarks
for visual analytics and establish a forum to advance evaluation
methods. The dataset consists mostly of news stories, along with some
multimedia materials and background information.  The goal is to
determine if inappropriate activities are taking place and to provide
evidence based hypotheses and conclusions. Participants have several
months to prepare their submissions. Selected entries present at the
conference.

--- What's different this year? --- 

The general format of the event remains the same as the 200 contest but
this year we also provide a pre-processed version of the dataset (e.g.
with entities already extracted) so that more teams can participate.
Your team will need to decide whether to enter the contest using the
preprocessed data or the raw data.
