We welcome multimodal-based research contributions as well as best-practice contributions focusing on the following (and similar, but not limited to) topics:


- annotation and indexing in sports 

- tracking people/ athlete and objects in sports

- activity recognition, classification, and evaluation in sports

- event detection and indexing in sports

Submissions can be of varying length from 4 to 8 pages, plus additional pages for the reference pages. There is no distinction between long and short papers, but the authors may themselves decide on the appropriate length of their paper.

This year, MMSports proposes a competition where participants will compete over State-of-the-art problems applied to real-world sport specific data. The competition is made of 4 individual challenges, each of which is sponsored by SportRadar with a US$1,000.00 prize. Each challenge comes with a toolkit describing the task, the dataset and metrics on which participants will be evaluated:

The challenges are hosted on EvalAI where participants will submit the prediction of their model on an evaluation set for which labels are kept secret. Leaderboards will display the ranking for each challenge.
