This paper presents the LIUM open-source speaker diarization toolbox, mostly dedicated to broadcast news. This tool includes both Hierarchical Agglomerative Clustering using well-known measures such as BIC and CLR, and the new ILP clustering algorithm using i-vectors. Diarization systems are tested on the French evaluation data from ESTER, ETAPE and REPERE campaigns.
