These working notes paper present the contribution of the UPC team to the Hyperlinking sub-task of the Search and Hyperlinking Task in MediaEval 2013. Our contribution explores the potential of a solution based only on visual cues.

In particular, every automatically generated shot is represented by a keyframe. The linking between video segments is based on the visual similarity of the keyframes they contain. Visual similarity is assessed with the intersection of bag of features histograms generated with the SURF descriptor.
