Call for Competition Proposals

The call for competition proposals is now closed.

BTAS 2013 is requesting proposals to host a competition in the area of biometrics. Algorithm competitions allow fields to be bench-marked as well as enable new fields to be introduced and highlighted. Please send a proposal which describes the nature of the competition, the method of participation for those that enter the competition, and expected results.

Prospective competition participants should fill out and submit a competition application form. All the submitted files related to the competition will be reviewed and selected based on the degree of appropriateness and quality for BTAS 2013.

Important Dates:

Application deadline: March 20, 2013

Acceptance notification: April 1, 2013

Competitions which are selected and completed, will present as a poster at BTAS 2013. Competition organizers will not be required to submit a paper and, therefore, will not have a published paper in the conference proceedings. Competition organizers must submit a draft poster by August 1, 2013 in order to be included in the BTAS 2013 agenda.
