- Two different sub-competitions (open category and light category) will be organized using the same databases.
- Each participant is allowed to submit only one algorithm to each category.
- The open category has no limits on memory requirements and template size. For practical testing reasons, the maximum response time of the algorithms is limited as follows: the maximum time for each enrollment is 10 seconds, the maximum time for each matching is 5 seconds. The test will be executed under Windows XP Professional O.S. on PC AMD Athlon 1600+ (1.41 GHz).
- The light category is intended for algorithms conceived for light architectures and therefore characterized by low computing needs, limited memory usage and small template size. The maximum time for enrollment is 0.5 seconds and the maximum time for matching is 0.3 seconds. The test will be executed under Windows XP Professional O.S. on PC AMD Athlon 1600+ (1.41 GHz). The maximum memory that can be allocated by the processes is 4 MBytes. The maximum template size is 2 KBytes. An utility will be made available to the participants to test if their executables comply with the memory requirement.
