The Spring 2007 CLEAR evaluation and workshop is an international effort to evaluate systems that are designed to recognize events, activities, and their relationships in interaction scenarios. CLEAR is meant to bring together projects and researchers working on related technologies in order to establish a common international evaluation in this field. The CLEAR 2007 evaluation is supported by the European Integrated project CHIL and the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
CLEAR welcomes the participation of researchers in the planned evaluation. This evaluation is free of charge.
The tentative tasks to be addressed in CLEAR 2007 include the following:
- Person Tracking (2D and 3D, audio-only, video-only, multimodal)
- Face Tracking
- Vehicle Tracking
- Person Identification (audio-only, video-only, multimodal)
- Head Pose Estimation (2D, 3D)
- Acoustic Event Detection and Classification
These tasks will be conducted on various multimodal data sets collected in lecture and meetings domains, as well as on broadcast news data.
The results of the evaluations will be presented during the CLEAR 2007 evaluation workshop, to be held in the Greater Washington, DC area.
The CLEAR post-workshop proceedings are available under the Springer LNCS book series:
