Competition on face recognition in mobile environment using the MOBIO database

In the context of BEAT project, the Biometric group at the Idiap Research Institute is organizing the second competition on face recognition for the 2013 International Conference on Biometrics (ICB-2013) to be held in Madrid, Spain on June 4-7, 2013. Researchers in biometrics are highly invited to participate in this competition. This will help them to evaluate the progress made in the last couple of years. The competition will be carried out on the MOBIO database. MOBIO is a challenging bimodal (face/speaker) database recorded from 152 people. The database has a female-male ratio of nearly 1:2 (52 females and 100 males) and was collected from August 2008 until July 2010 in six different sites from five different countries. The images provided by the database were captured with cameras of mobile phones and a laptop computer.
