The 13th Video Browser Showdown (VBS 2024) was held on 29th January, 2024, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, at the International Conference on Multimedia Modeling (MMM 2024). 12 international teams (from Austria, China, Czech Republic, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Singapore, Switzerland, The Netherlands, Vietnam) competed over about 6 hours for quickly and accurately solving many search tasks of different types (known-item search/KIS, ad-hoc-video search/AVS, question-answering/QA) in three datasets with about 2500 hours of video content. Like in previous years, this large-scale international video retrieval challenge was an exciting event that demonstrated the state-of-the-art performance of interactive video retrieval systems.
