Call for Participation:

We are organizing the ActEV SDL challenge (https://actev.nist.gov/sdl) as a guest task in conjunction with the CVPR'20 ActivityNet workshop, June 14, 2020 (http://activity-net.org/challenges/2020/challenge.html). The ActivityNet workshop has two tasks and four guest tasks related to human activity detection and understanding.

The ActEV SDL (Sequestered Data Leaderboard: https://actev.nist.gov/sdl) is an ongoing ranking of software systems that process lengthy videos and detect activities of interest. Anyone can submit their system to NIST, which will then run the system on sequestered data, score the results and post the score to the leaderboard. We will also provide detailed reports on the subset of test data for each submission including, Detection Error Tradeoff curve, Ranking and score on individual activities, The sequestered data is from the MEVA (Multiview Extended Video with Activities) Test3 dataset, which contains 140 hours of time-synchronized multi-camera videos, including indoor and outdoor scenes, night and day, crowds and individuals, and videos are from both EO (Electro-Optical) and IR (Infrared) sensors.

Our evaluation partner, Kitware has released public MEVA dataset of 333 hours of ground-camera and UAV videos and 28 hours of MEVA training Annotations dataset (http://mevadata.org/).

We are inviting all the teams to take part in the ActEV SDL (Sequestered Data Leaderboard: https://actev.nist.gov/sdl) leaderboard evaluation. The top two teams will be invited to give oral SDL task presentations at the CVPR'20 ActivityNet workshop, June 14, 2020 (http://activity-net.org/challenges/2020/challenge.html) based on the CLI submission deadline of May 10th, 2020 at 12:00 noon.
