Abstract

This paper describes the objectives, the tasks proposed to the participants and the associated protocols in terms of database and assessment tools of two competitions on fingerprints and on-line signatures. The particularity of the fingerprint competition is to be an on-line competition, for evaluation of fingerprint verification tools such as minutiae extractors and matchers as well as complete systems. This competition will be officialy launched during the ICB conference. The on-line signature competition will test the influence of multi-sessions, environmental conditions (still and mobility) and signature complexity on the performance of complete systems using two datasets extracted from the BioSecure database. Its result will be presented during the ICB conference.
