The 2013 Social Event Detection Task

The task description for the Social Event Detection Task at MediaEval 2013 has been released. The task involves supervised clustering of events from real social media networks.

Some previous work on clustering evaluation that came from my involvement in the INEX XML Mining track in 2009 and 2010 and I described in a paper "Document Clustering Evaluation: Divergence from a Random Baseline" is being used during the evaluation.
