EMVIC 2014: Eye Movements Verification and Identification Competition, 2nd call


The goal is to determine how people may be identified based on their eye movement characteristic. No special equipment required - the organizers provide a dataset of eye movement recordings.



The Silesian University of Technology in cooperation with IEEE International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2014) and exclusive sponsor SensoMotoric Instruments GmbH (world leader in eye tracking) organizes:

EMVIC 2014 EMVIC 2014: Eye Movements Verification and Identification Competition

The aim of the contest is to determine how people may be identified based on their eye movement characteristic.

SensoMotoric Instruments will award an SMI RED-m eye tracker to the winner of the EMVIC competition and for each of the two runners up a 250 Euro travel grant to the IEEE International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2014) in September 2014 in Florida, USA.

The organizers provide a dataset of eye movements' recordings in CSV (comma separated values) format. After downloading the datasets, participants may analyze it to prepare their own classification models. See competition formula for details.

To become a participant you don't need to have any special eye tracking equipment. All data needed is ready to download! You only need to have some experience in data classification.

Here is some information about biometric identification and about eye movements in biometrics.

Submission deadline is 20 March 2014.
