Visual information is ubiquitous and the amount produced with cheap
digital cameras is rising strongly. To better manage this information,
content-based image and video retrieval has been proposed for general
retrieval as well as in specialised domains. While many techniques have
been developed for image and video retrieval, one of the problems is
that many published approaches are very difficult to compare to each
other as varying databases, performance measures, and methodologies are
In order to mitigate this problem, there has been increased focus on the
evaluation of visual information retrieval systems in the last years.
Similar to the text retrieval domain many years ago, several visual
information retrieval benchmarks with a varying focus have been created
and run. This evaluation is particularly important as many visual
information retrieval techniques and systems are at the point where they
are ready to leave the academic field and become integrated into
commercial prototypes and products. This requires techniques not only to
be interesting as theoretical approaches but also to be comparable with
respect to performance obtained.
The role of this special issue is to fill the need for a comprehensive
overview of the current visual information retrieval evaluation
activities. This is envisioned to include evaluation campaigns as well
as activities at a lower level, such as dataset creation, innovative
approaches to ground truth collection and relevance judgements,
discussion of evaluation metrics and the planning of "realistic" queries
and user models.
The scope of this special issue is to cover all aspects of the
evaluation of visual information retrieval.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Evaluation campaigns
* Evaluation techniques
* Evaluation metrics
* Datasets and dataset creation
* Query topic creation
* Ground truth collection
* Relevance judgements
* Evaluation of image and video features for retrieval
* Challenges in image and video retrieval evaluation
* User requirement modelling and user modelling
* Evaluation of user interfaces to search engines
Papers should be appropriate for journal publication. Submissions should
follow the guidelines set out by the CVIU.
When submitting papers, the authors should select the specific article
type indicated AND include a line in their cover letter as a failsafe
[example: "This manuscript is submitted to the Special Issue on Image
and Video Retrieval Evaluation"].
All papers should be submitted via the CVIU web-site with Article Type
'Special Issue: Image and Video Retrieval'
Full author guides (Preparation of Manuscript, Copyright and
Permissions, Author Inquiries, Submission of Manuscripts) and on-line
submission links can be found at the above link.
All papers will be peer reviewed following the CVIU reviewing procedures.
