COMPETITION CALL FOR PROPOSALS
We are soliciting proposal for competition on any topic of interest to
the ICIAP community. We especially encourage competition proposals
from emerging new fields or new application domains related to Image
Analysis and processing.
Interdisciplinary topics that will attract a significant cross-section
of the community are especially highly encouraged.
There will be two types of competitions:
Data science competitions (standard), where participants
will compete to obtain the best score on a data driven task of
interest to the pattern recognition and computer vision
community based on a problem defined by the organizers of the
Live competitions, Participants will present live demos
at ICIAP 2021 which apply methodology to an application domain
defined by the organizers of the live competition.
Proposals should be submitted in PDF format by email to
email@example.com by March 1st, 2021.
The proposals should include the following information:
Why the challenge is of interest to the conference and to the
scientific community? Does the challenge address an appropriate and
relevant topic or topics of ICIAP?
Is the challenge goal reasonably reachable according to the time
schedule presented below? Is standard or a live competition?
The data (standard competition): Training and test data, a description
of the annotations provided, and a detailed description of the rules
relative to the competition and the metrics used to measure
Both the training and test data must be unpublished and not provided
to other people before. Should we also allow datasets that are
previously public but not used for challenge or competition?
This will also not shoot us in the foot if a challenge is repeated for
new competitions from previous years (or in future some challenges
from ICIAP 21 to be repeated in later ICIAP conferences).

evaluate the results. Diversity in the team of competition organizers
is generally recommended. It is good to include a number of people
from different backgrounds with experience in the field. These might
include researchers from a number of different academic institutes, as
well as from industry, who have worked on a variety of projects
related to the topic of interest.
The competition schedules: Each challenge would require an ad-hoc
release of portion of training set, as well as specific time for the
data analysis. please provide a detailed time schedule considering the
one provided below.
5. AN AD-HOC SITE
