The INEX Multimedia track focuses on using the structure of XML documents to extract, relate, and combine the relevance of different multimedia fragments. This paper presents a brief overview of the track for INEX 2007, including the track’s test collection, tasks, and goals. We also report the approaches of the participating groups and their main results.
