This paper addresses the issue of detecting violent
scenes in Hollywood movies. In this context, we describe the
MediaEval 2013 Violent Scene Detection task which proposes
a consistent evaluation framework to the research community.
9 participating teams proposed systems for evaluation in 2013,
which denotes an increasing interest for the task. In this paper,
the 2013 dataset, the annotations process and the task?s rules
are detailed. The submitted systems are thoroughfully analysed
and compared through several metrics to draw conclusions on
the most promising techniques among which multimodal systems
and mid-level concept detection. Some further late fusions of the
systems are investigated and show promising performances.
