Call for KinectTM demonstrations, June 16 2012, Providence, Rhode Island

Whether you entered or not the CHALEARN gesture challenge, the organizers invite you to enter a demonstration competition of applications of gesture recognition with KinectTM. At the site of the CVPR 2012 workshop where the challenge results will be discussed (http://gesture.chalearn.org/dissemination/cvpr2012), the participants will demonstrate their system and be judged by a panel of experts, who will grade them according to pre-defined criteria: relevance (an application of gesture recognition using KinectTM NOT limited to one-shot-learning like the gesture challenge), usefulness (or, if it is a game, playfulness), technical or scientific contribution, novelty/originality, and quality of implementation.

First prize: USD 5000,
Second prize: USD 3000,
Third prize: USD 2000.

The prizes are donated by Microsoft (see the rules for the "qualitative evaluation" of the gesture challenge). To earn prizes, the participants must use a KinectTM device and the Microsoft SDK. Microsoft may also offer to license the technology of the winners for up to USD 100,000.

Register: The demonstrators should subscribe to our Google group gesturechallenge.
Guidelines: The demonstrators should send a 2-page demonstration proposal in the CVPR format (see author's guidelines). They should take into account the evaluation criteria.
Submission: The proposals should be emailed to gesture@clopinet.com.
Proposal deadline: Tuesday May 1, 2012.
Competition date: Saturday, June 16, 2012.
