Liveness Detection-Iris Competition 2015 opens submissions for second round of testing


Clarkson University, Notre Dame University and Warsaw University of Technology announced that they are now accepting submissions for the second round of testing for the LivDet-Iris: Liveness Detection-Iris Competition 2015.

The LivDet 2013-Iris competition is divided into two sub-competitions: Part I: Software-based Test and Part II: System-based Test.

Part I: Software-based Test will involve an iris liveness database with different quality levels, a minimum of three distinct datasets, and high quality spoof databases representing two attack types (paper irises and patterned contact lenses),

The submissions will be evaluated per dataset, with the overall evaluation based on the average performance across the three datasets.

The winner will be chosen based on the minimum of the average of the overall classification errors for the three datasets.

Part II: System-based Test, which is open for registration to academic and industrial organizations, will test 500 live attempts for two different attacks (patterned contact and paper iris).

The winner will be awarded based on their minimum overall classification error.

Registration for the second round of competition is open until November 10, 2015, while the report is scheduled to be presented at the ICB 2016 Conference on June 14 – June 17, 2016 in Halmstad, Sweden.

Those companies interested in submitting for the LivDet2015 Dataset can email datasets@livdet.org .
