The REPERE Challenge aims to support research on people recognition in multimodal conditions. Following a 2012 dryrun [1], the first official evaluation of systems has been conducted at the beginning of 2013. To both help system development and assess the technology progress a specific corpus is developed. It current totals at 30 hours of video with multimodal annotations. The systems have to answer the following questions: Who is speaking? Who is present in the video? What names are cited? What names are displayed? The challenge is to combine the various informations coming from the speech and the images.
