We are happy to announce the ImageCLEF at ICPR contest that will be

organized as part of the ICPR 2010 contests. 
The ImageCLEF at ICPR challenge proposes four tasks. Three of them are run 
before the ICPR paper submission which enables the participants to 
publish their algorithms and the independently evaluated results in the 
main conference. The fourth task is an interactive retrieval session 
that will be held at the ICPR.

The four proposed tasks are:

  * Visual concept detection task: automatically annotating a set of
    images with key words of an ontology in a multi-label
    classification scenario.
  * Robot vision task: classify images taken from a robot into a
    predefined set of rooms.
  * Information fusion task: release of the best four visual and
    textual runs of the medical image retrieval task; participants
    need to combine these runs to obtain the best overall performance
    (no training data).
  * Interactive retrieval task: interactive retrieval at the ICPR
    conference with “bring your own laptop”

Please have a look at http://www.imageclef.org/2010/ICPR to see the 
details of each task.
