== SHL Activity Recognition Challenge: registration deadline extended to 
30 April 2020 ==

The Wearable Technologies Lab at the University of Sussex is glad to 
inform you
about the third SHL Activity Recognition Challenge

This follows on our very successful 2018 and 2019 challenges, which saw the
participation of more than 40 teams.

This 2020 edition focuses on recognising 8 modes of locomotion and 
(activities) in a user-independent manner with an unknown phone 
position. The
goal is to recognize the user activity from data coming from the phone 
of a test
user. The location of that phone is not specified. Training data is 
provided for
a train user, with all the 4 phone positions available. One of these 
position will
be identical to that of the test user.

The dataset used for this challenge comprises 59 days of training data, 
6 days
of validation data, and 40 days of test data.

The participants will have to develop an algorithm pipeline that will 
process the
sensor data, create models and output the recognized activities.

All teams will receive a certificate of participation, and the best 
three teams
will also receive a prize (800£, 400£ and 200£)!

The participants should also write a technical paper explaining their 
and development process, which will be presented at a special session at 
HASCA Workshop at Ubicomp 2020 (, and included 
in the
adjunct proceedings.

The timeline of the challenge:

- Registration via email: as soon as possible, but not later than 
XX.XX.XXXX Extended: 30.04.2020
