PASCAL Visual Object Classes Recognition Challenge 07

http://www.pascal-network.org/challenges/VOC/voc2007/index.html

PASCAL Visual Object Classes Recognition Challenge 2007

The European Network of Excellence PASCAL is organising a third
PASCAL Visual Object Classes Recognition Challenge. This time there are 
more classes (twenty), more challenging images, and the possibility of 
more confusion between classes with similar visual appearance 
(cars/bus/train, bicycle/motorbike).

As before, participants can recognize any or all of the classes, and there
are classification and detection tracks. There are also two "taster"
competitions, on pixel-wise segmentation and on person layout (detecting
head, hands, feet).

The development kit (Matlab code for evaluation, and baseline algorithms)
and training data is now available at:

http://www.pascal-network.org/challenges/VOC/voc2007/index.html

where further details are given. The timetable of the challenge is:

* April 2007: Development kit and training data available.

* 11 June 2007: Test data made available.

* 17 Sept 2007, 11pm GMT: DEADLINE for submission of results.

* 15 October 2007: Visual Recognition Challenge workshop (Caltech 256 and
PASCAL VOC2007) to be held as part of ICCV 2007 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil,
