Multimedia Datasets for Repeatable Experimentation
Information retrieval and multimedia content access has a long history of comparative evaluation and many of the advances in the area over the past decade can be attributed to the availability of open datasets that support comparative and repeatable experimentation. Sharing data and code to allow other researchers to replicate research results is needed in the multimedia modeling field and helps to improve the performance of systems and the reproducibility of published papers.
Researchers within the multimedia community are encouraged to submit papers adhering to any of the following topics of interest:
New datasets and their application domains
Valuable experiences gained from making datasets
Open-source experimental frameworks
