In this competition, we would like to tackle a problem of comic scene analysis: the emotion recognition of comic scenes. The competition task aims at extracting the emotions of comic characters in comic scenes
The emotions of comic characters are described by the Visual information, the Text in speech Balloons or Captions and the Onomatopoeia (Comic drawings of words that phonetically imitates, resembles, or suggests the sound that it describes). The task hence is a multi-modal analysis task which can take advantages from both fields: computer vision and natural language processing which are two of the main interests of the ICDAR community.
