The TREC conference series is sponsored by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) with additional support from other U.S. government agencies. The goal of the conference series is to encourage research in information retrieval by providing a large test collection, uniform scoring procedures, and a forum for organizations interested in comparing their results. In 2001 and 2002 the TREC series sponsored a video "track" devoted to research in automatic segmentation, indexing, and content-based retrieval of digital video. Beginning in 2003, this track became an independent evaluation (TRECVID) with a workshop taking place just before TREC.
Paul Over is the TRECVID Project Leader at NIST.
Alan Smeaton (CLARITY: Centre for Sensor Web Technologies, Dublin City University) and Wessel Kraaij (TNO and the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences, Radboud University Nijmegen) serve as general external coordinators.
TRECVID 2013 is now complete. Thanks to all those who participated!
