The joint MMLab and PraLAB (University of Cagliari) team composed by Duc-Tien Dang-Nguyen, Luca Piras, Giorgio Giacinto, Giulia Boato, Francesco De Natale obtained the best score in the task Retrieving Diverse Social Images, with the work “Retrieval of Diverse Images by Pre-filtering and Hierarchical Clustering”.  Another MMLab team, led by Emanuele Sansone and Giulia Boato in conjuction with Minh-Son Dao (NICT) participated in the new task Synchronization of Multi-User Event Media with the work “Synchronizing Multi-User Photo Galleries with MRF”.

The workshop is a benchmarking initiative for evaluating new algorithms in multimedia access and retrieval where multimodal information (speech, audio, visual content, tags, users, context) are used to accomplish different tasks. This year, Nicola Conci and Francesco De Natale were co-organizers of the Event Synchronization task.
