Call for Papers


5th International Workshop on Multimedia Content Analysis in Sports
@ ACM Multimedia, 
October 10-14, 2022, 
Lisbon, Portugal


We'd like to invite you to submit your paper proposals for the 5th
International Workshop on Multimedia Content Analysis in Sports to be
held in Lisbon, Portugal together with ACM Multimedia 2022. The
ambition of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners from different disciplines to share ideas on current
multimedia/multimodal content analysis research in sports. We welcome
multimodal-based research contributions as well as best-practice
contributions focusing on the following (and similar, but not limited
to) topics:


- annotation and indexing in sports 

- tracking people/ athlete and objects in sports

- activity recognition, classification, and evaluation in sports

- event detection and indexing in sports

- performance assessment in sports

- injury analysis and prevention in sports

- data driven analysis in sports

- graphical augmentation and visualization in sports

- automated training assistance in sports

- camera pose and motion tracking in sports

- brave new ideas / extraordinary multimodal solutions in sports

- personal virtual (home) trainers/coaches in sports

- datasets in sports 


Submissions can be of varying length from 4 to 8 pages, plus
additional pages for the reference pages. There is no distinction
between long and short papers, but the authors may themselves decide
on the appropriate length of their paper. All papers will undergo the
same review process and review period.

This year, MMSports proposes a competition where participants will
compete over State-of-the-art problems applied to real-world sport
specific data. The competition is made of 4 individual challenges,
each of which is sponsored by SportRadar with a US$1,000.00
prize. Each challenge comes with a toolkit describing the task, the
dataset and metrics on which participants will be evaluated:

    Ball 3D localization
    Camera calibration
    Instance segmentation
    Player re-identification

The challenges are hosted on EvalAI where participants will submit the
prediction of their model on an evaluation set for which labels are
kept secret. Leaderboards will display the ranking for each challenge.
