Call For Papers

CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

We invite researchers working in the field of automatic ear recognition to participate in the 1st Unconstrained Ear Recognition Challenge (UERC) that will be held in the scope of the IEEE/IAPR International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 2017). The goal of the challenge is to advance the state-of-technology in the field of automatic ear recognition, to provide participants with a challenging research problem and introduce a benchmark dataset and protocol for assessing the latest techniques, models, and algorithms related to ear recognition. If you are interested in taking part in UERC 2017, please visit:

The challenge will be held on an extended version of the Annotated Web Ears (AWE) dataset. Image of the dataset were collected with a semi-automatic procedure that involved web-crawlers and a subsequent manual inspection. Because the AWE images were not gathered in controlled laboratory-like conditions, they better represent the variability in ear appearance than existing datasets of ear images.

Publication:
The results of UERC will be published in an IJCB conference paper co-authored jointly by all challenge participants. Additionally, a special issue on Unconstrained Ear Recognition will be organized in IET Biometrics and the most innovative approaches (and not necessarily the best performing ones) taking part in UERC will be invited to submit papers of their approaches to the special issue.

Organizers:
Ziga Emersic
Peter Peer
Vitomir Struc
