ImageCLEF is the cross-language image retrieval track which is run as part of the Cross Language Evaluation Forum (CLEF). ImageCLEF has already seen participation from both academic and commercial research groups worldwide from communities including: Cross-Language Information Retrieval (CLIR), Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) and user interaction.
