2nd CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: ChAirGest - Gesture Recognition Challenge &
Workshop

https://project.eia-fr.ch/chairgest/Pages/Information.aspx

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The ChAirGest challenge is a research oriented competition designed to
encourage researchers to take advantage of data recorded from multiple
sensors to optimize methods for gesture spotting and recognition in the
context of close HCI. The developed dataset provides researchers a common
benchmark tool which enables quantitative comparison of algorithms under
strictly comparable conditions. Those algorithms can use any combination of
the data types available in the dataset.

The provided data come from a Kinect camera placed slightly above the
computer screen and 4 Inertial Motion Units (IMU) attached to the right arm
and the neck of the subject. The dataset contains 10 different gestures,
started from 3 different resting postures and recorded in two different
lighting conditions by 10 different subjects. Thus, the total dataset
contains 1200 annotated gestures split in continuous video sequences.

The goal of the challenge and related workshop is to promote research on
methods using multimodal data to spot and recognize gestures in the context
of close human-computer interaction

The goal of the challenge is to promote research on methods using
multimodal data to spot and recognize gestures in the context of close
human-computer interaction.

The participants will have the possibility to present their results during
the full day workshop held at the ICMI’2103 Conference in Sydney,
Australia. The papers presented at the workshop will be published in the
Conference Proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.
