Evaluation Conferences - Like Gladiators for the Retrieval World?
Ainhoa Llorente Coto, Suzanne Little

This event took place on 5th August 2009 at 11:30am (10:30 GMT)
Knowledge Media Institute, Berrill Building, The Open University, Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, MK7 6AA

The purpose of this talk is to review some evaluation conferences in the field of image and video retrieval. The main goal of these evaluation conferences is to support research within the information retrieval community by providing the infrastructure necessary for large-scale evaluation of image and video retrieval methodologies. Other goals are to encourage research on large test collections, to speed the transfer of technology from research labs into commercial products, to increase the availability of appropriate evaluation techniques and finally, to include new evaluation techniques more applicable to current systems. In particular, we will talk about ImageCLEF and TRECVID and will share our experience in participating in the past calls of 2008 and 2009.
