Multimedia information retrieval is a highly diverse field.
A variety of data types, research problems, methodologies
are involved. Researchers in the field come from
very different disciplines, ranging from mathematical and
physical sciences, computational sciences and engineering,
to application domains. The panel, consisting of highly
visible active researchers from both academia and the
industry, opens a discussion on the importance of diversity
to the healthy growth of the field. This paper records their
opinions expressed at the panel.
