- The central node of the Benchathlon is the home site: http://www.benchathlon.net/;
- More generally, we aim at gathering and sharing resources that are relevant to our goal, please contribute.
- We are addressing a number of guidelines to the community;
- There is no membership per
se. Simply, you are invited to refer to our effort and suggest new material and
recommendations to add.
- Benchathlon people take the opportunity of the Internet Imaging
conference to meet in a special session;
- We are also aligned with IAPR
Technical Committee TC12 Multimedia and Visual
Information Systems chaired by Professor Clement Leung
What we enventually aim to is the development of an automated benchmark
allowing the fair evaluation of any CBIR system. This is an incredible
amount of work (see the detail). We can only accomplish it if we
collaborate and leverage on each other's contributions. The first
step is therefore to federate all efforts towards this goal.
