We warmly invite you to participate in the 4th edition of the Lifelog Task,
( ImageCLEF 2020 is an evaluation
campaign that is being organized as part of the CLEF initiative labs (, which will be held in Thessaloniki,
Greece (22-25 September 2020).

An increasingly wide range of personal devices, such as smartphones, video
cameras as well as wearable devices that allow capturing pictures, videos,
and audio clips for every moment of our lives are becoming available.
Considering the huge volume of data created, there is a need for systems
that can automatically analyze the data in order to categorize, summarize
and also query to retrieve the information the user may need.

As many successful related workshops and panels have been organised in
recent years, we would like to continue to spread the attention of
lifelogging tasks to as many audiences as possible. Furthermore, we aim to
promote research into the lifelogging task to make it a well-known subject
in the research community and contribute to developing interesting research
topics in this field.

In the 4th edition of this task, we continue to focus on daily living
moment retrieval with newly enriched data of approximately 4.5 months and
propose a completely new task for assessing sports performance with a
totally new dataset.

SubTask 1: Lifelog moment retrieval (LMRT, 4th edition)

Lifelog Core Task: Lifelog moment retrieval (LMRT, 4th edition). The
participants are required to retrieve a number of specific predefined
activities in a lifelogger's life. For example, they are asked to return
the relevant moments for the query “Find the moment(s) when the lifelogger
was having icecream on the beach”. Particular attention should be paid to
the diversification of the selected moments with respect to the target

SubTask 2: Sport performance lifelog (SPLL, 1st edition)

New Lifelog Task: Sport performance lifelog (SPLL, 1st edition). The
participants are required to predict the expected performance (e.g.,
estimated finishing time, average heart rate and calorie consumption) for
an athlete who trained for a sport event. Data. A new data set will be
provided, e.g., information collected from 2-3 people that train for a 10km
run, daily sleeping patterns, daily heart rate, sport activities, image
logs of all food consumed during the training period, close up images of
the eyes of the runner before and after training (time stamps December 2019
to April 2020).
