What is ImageCLEF?
ImageCLEF 2018 is an evaluation campaign that is being organized as part of the CLEF initiative labs. The campaign offers several research tasks that welcome participation from teams around the world. The results of the campaign appear in the working notes proceedings, published by CEUR Workshop Proceedings (CEUR-WS.org). Selected contributions among the participants, will be invited for publication in the following year in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) together with the annual lab overviews.
Do I have to register with CLEF in order to participate in an ImageCLEF challenge?
Normally you would have to register with CLEF, however we will handle this for you by sending the necessary data you gave us on CrowdAI directly to CLEF. No further action on your behalf is required.
What is an ImageCLEF task?
ImageCLEF is grouped into several so-called tasks, each of them tackling a different research topic. An ImageCLEF task may have have several challenges, but has only one global dataset. If you get access to a challenge’s dataset and that challenge is part of a task providing multiple challenges, you will automatically have access to the data of all challenges in that task.
This years tasks are:
- ImageCLEF Caption => 2 challenges
- ImageCLEF Tuberculosis => 3 challenges
- ImageCLEF Lifelog => 2 challenges
- ImageCLEF VQA-Med => 1 challenge
How can I get access to the the data of a challenge?
Please read the Rules section in the challenge description page. There are mainly 2 things you have to do:
- Add additional information to your profile so you comply with the CLEF requirements
- Sign and upload an End User Agreement
When you click on the dataset tab of a challenge you will be guided through the process in order to obtain access to the data.
Please note, as already stated above: If you get access to a challenge’s dataset and that challenge is part of a task providing multiple challenges, you will automatically have access to the data of all challenges in that task.
