MediaEval 2013 Multimedia Benchmark
Call for Survey Participation

MediaEval (http://www.multimediaeval.org) is a benchmarking initiative 
dedicated to evaluating new algorithms for multimedia access and 
retrieval. It emphasizes the 'multi' in multimedia and focuses on human 
and social aspects of multimedia tasks. MediaEval attracts participants 
who are interested in multimodal approaches to multimedia involving, 
e.g., speech recognition, visual analysis, music and audio analysis, 
user-contributed information (tags, comments, tweets), viewer affective 
response, social networks, geo-coordinates and non-linear video access.

The MediaEval 2013 season kicks off with the MediaEval 2013 Survey. The 
survey is used to collect your opinion on which tasks should be offered 
by MediaEval 2013. If you are interested in participating in MediaEval 
2013, please fill out the survey:


The survey will take you about 5 minutes if you fill in only the main 
questions. There are 12 main questions, which are multiple choice 
questions that collect your opinion on each of the 12 tasks that have 
been proposed for MediaEval 2013. The survey will take you about 25 
minutes if you choose to answer the additional questions and give 
comments. (We encourage you to answer the additional questions on the 
tasks that most interest you.)

The MediaEval 2013 task list will be finalized in late February and sign 
up for participation will open at the beginning of March. Please be sure 
to fill your email address in on the first page of the survey if you 
would like to receive a mail when sign up opens.

Our goal is to have the survey filled out by as many researchers as 
possible by 15th February -- please pass the survey link along to 
colleagues who might be interested.

Note that the deadline for submission of task results to MediaEval 2013 
will be early to mid-September and the workshop will be held in October 
in Barcelona, coordinated with the timing of (but not overlapping) ACM 
Multimedia 2013 (http://acmmm13.org/).

Larson m.a.larson at tudelft.nl with questions.
