Like in 2012, TOSCA-MP co-organised the Video Browser Showdown as a session of the MMM 2013 conference, held from Jan. 7-9 in Huangshan, China. The Video Browser Showdown is a live video browsing competition where international researchers, working in the field of interactive video search, evaluate and demonstrate the efficiency of their tools in presence of the audience. The aim of the Video Browser Showdown is to evaluate video browsing tools for their efficiency at “Known Item Search” (KIS) tasks with a well-defined data set in direct comparison with other tools. For each KIS task the searchers of the six participating teams from Europe and Asia need to interactively find a short video clip in a one-hour video file within a specific time limit.

Like in 2012, TOSCA-MP provided content collected by its archive partners on the MAMMIE platform and helped organising the competition. There were two rounds of the competition, one with expert users, the other one with novice users from the audience. The analysis of the search and some system logs of the 2012 competition was presented as a paper in the MMM 2013 main conference, and we are confident, that the analysis of the results of the 2013 competition again provides interesting insights.
