Image retrieval was, and still is, a hot topic in research. It comes with many challenges that changed over the years with the emergence of more advanced methods for analysis and enormous growth of images created, shared and consumed. This chapter gives an overview of domain-specific image retrieval evaluation approaches, which were part of the ImageCLEF evaluation campaign . Specifically, the robot vision, photo retrieval, scalable image annotation and lifelogging tasks are presented. The ImageCLEF medical activity is described in a separate chapter in this volume. Some of the presented tasks have been available for several years, whereas others are quite new (like lifelogging). This mix of new and old topics has been chosen to give the reader an idea about the development and trends within image retrieval. For each of the tasks, the datasets, participants, techniques used and lessons learned are presented and discussed leading to a comprehensive summary.
