Special Session on "Interactive Video Retrieval for Beginners (IVR4B)" 
at CBMI 2024

21st International Conference on Content-based Multimedia Indexing (CBMI 2024).
18-20 September 2024, 
Reykjavik, Iceland -

Despite the advances in automated content description using deep
learning, and the emergence of joint image-text embedding models, many
video retrieval tasks still require a human user in the
loop. Interactive video retrieval (IVR) systems address these
challenges. In order to assess their performance, multimedia retrieval
benchmarks such as Video Browser Showdown (VBS) or Lifelog Search
Challenge (LSC) have been established. These benchmarks provide
large-scale datasets as well as task settings and evaluation
protocols, allowing to measure progress in research on IVR
systems. However, in order to achieve the best possible performance of
the participating systems, they are usually operated by members of the
development team. This special session aims at providing better
insights into how such systems are usable by users with a solid IT
background, but not familiar with the details behind the system.

The submitted retrieval systems will be presented as demos (with a
related poster), and compete in a novice competition. Volunteer
attendees, who are not related to the developer team of any
participating IVR system, but have seen the systems in the demo
session, will use them to solve a small number of Video Browser
Showdown tasks.
