the Applications Department of the March 2008 issue of Computer Graphics
and Application (CG&A)

--- VAST 2007 Contest ---
 
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. 

--- 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.
