Competition invites researchers to develop biometric identification solutions via eye movements

January 28, 2015 - 

In an effort to advance the research field of eye movement biometrics, the BioEye 2015 competition gives scientists and researchers the opportunity to use a common database of eye movements recorded using high quality standards.

The competition’s participants are asked to develop their solutions for the purpose of biometric identification via the eye movements.

Organizers have provided datasets on the BioEye 2015 competition website which contain eye movement recordings that were captured using different visual stimuli and with different time intervals.

Researchers can download the competition datasets from the database page and immediately begin testing their solutions.

Additionally, all those who are interested in the prior work of eye movement biometrics can find more material on the subject in the resources page.

The competition’s submission period will run from March 1st to March 26th, with final results made available on March 29th.

The organizing committee is comprised of committee chair Dr. Oleg V. Komogortsev and Dr. Ioannis Rigas, both of whom are from Texas State University, while the committee members for the BTAS 2015 Conference are Dr. Oleg V. Komogortsev and Dr. Stephanie C. Schuckers.

BioEye 2015 is an official competition of the IEEE Seventh International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems (BTAS 2015).
