2024 Ego4D and Ego-Exo4D Challenges – Next Steps

Dear entrants in the 2024 Ego4D & Ego-Exo4D Challenges,

Thank you for your submissions!! We are thrilled to see so much interest in the challenges and are looking forward to culminating the process at the EgoVis Workshop on June 17th at CVPR 2024 in Seattle. Please note that leaderboards remain open until 5 PM U.S. Pacific Time Friday, May 30th.

In anticipation of the leaderboards closing, we would like to remind all participants of the challenge requirement to submit short validation reports, describing your method and results. We ask that these reports not be longer than 4-pages (less is welcomed) and provide examples of both the positive and negative results (limitations) of your model. We also ask that you list the challenge, the name(s) of the participants in the team, affiliations, and contact information for all members of your team. Validation report submissions are a required challenge step and they are due at 11:59 PM U.S. Pacific Time on Wednesday, June 5th. Please submit via this CMT link (“Ego4D Challenges” or “Ego-Exo4D Challenges” tracks). If you have submitted to more than one challenge, you can submit a single report and select all the challenges it applies to. Ego4D consortium members will review these reports and declare winners. Those winners are eligible to receive prizes following our competition rules! While the deadline is still a bit far off, we wanted to remind you now of this requirement so you can start to prepare.

Please also make sure your submission is public on the leaderboard: In the past, there have been incidents of teams submitting to Ego4D challenges but mistakenly marking these submissions as “private” and thus having no scores transferred to the public leaderboard. Everyone is welcome to keep their submissions private; however, participation in our challenge requires making leaderboard entries public. Please be mindful of this as we approach the closing of the leaderboards.

Thank you all again for your excellent submissions to the Ego4D 2024 Challenge! We appreciate your time and creativity in exploring the frontiers of first-person video understanding. Please reach out with any questions.

All the best

Ego4D & Ego-Exo4D
