Extending beyond the borders of culture, art, and science, the search for digital information is one of the major challenges of our time. Digital libraries, bio-computing & medical science, the Internet, streaming video, databases, cultural heritage collections and peer-2-peer networks have created a worldwide need for new paradigms and techiques on how to browse, search, and summarize multimedia collections.
This course focusses on the area of searching and retrieving multimedia information from digital databases and collections. Examples of multimedia would be X-Ray and MRI scans, general photos, and video.
Requirements: Willingness to learn or already know C, C++ programming languages
(Class participation is part of the grading. As this is a seminar, attendance is mandatory)
- 6 EC for
Leiden University Students (presentation and software project)
- 3 EC for TU Delft Students (presentation only); It is possible for Delft students to do the project also.
The class project information has been posted on the MIR forum

Suggestions for class presentations
- Introduce the problem and main idea - Explain the motivation for
- Cover the main points of the algorithm
- Make sure you have a slide which clearly states the main contribution of the paper at the end
- There should be a little humor in the presentation to make it interesting for the audience
