  • Wolfgang Müller, Henning Müller, Stéphane Marchand-Maillet, Thierry Pun, David McG. Squire, Zoran Pecenovic, Christoph Giess and Arjen P. de Vries, MRML: A Communication Protocol for Content-Based Image Retrieval. Tech. Rep. 00.02, Computer Vision Group, Computing Centre, University of Geneva, rue Général Dufour, 24, CH-1211 Genève, Switzerland, March 2000.

    In this paper we introduce and describe the Multimedia Retrieval Markup Language (MRML). This XML-based markup language is the basis for an open communication protocol for content-based image retrieval systems (CBIRSs). MRML was initially designed as a means of separating CBIR engines from their user interfaces. It is, however, also extensible as the basis for standardized performance evaluation procedures.

    Such a tool is essential for the formulation and implementation of common benchmarks for CBIR. A common protocol can also bring new dynamics to the CBIR field-it makes the development of new systems faster and more efficient, and opens the door of the CBIR research field to other disciplines such as Human-Computer Interaction. The MRML specifications, as well as the first MRML-compliant applications, are freely available and are introduced in this paper.
