FVC-onGoing: on-line evaluation of fingerprint recognition algorithms
FVC-onGoing is a web-based automated evaluation system for fingerprint recognition algorithms. Tests are carried out on a set of sequestered datasets and results are reported on-line by using well known performance indicators and metrics.
The aim is to track the advances in fingerprint recognition technologies, through continuously updated independent testing and reporting of performances on given benchmarks. The algorithms
are evaluated using strongly supervised approaches to maximize trustworthiness.
FVC-onGoing is the evolution of FVC: the international Fingerprint Verification
Competitions organized in 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006.
Submission and Publication policy
Interested companies, academic research groups, and independent developers can
register for an account on this web site and
submit an algorithm to a given
benchmark. The system will test the algorithm and
the participant will see the results in its private area. No other use of the submitted algorithm will be made. Then the participant may decide to publish the results of its algorithm on the FVC-onGoing
public result section, where
they will be visible to any other web user.
Terms and Conditions
All publications and works that cite FVC-onGoing must reference the following paper:
B. Dorizzi, R. Cappelli, M. Ferrara, D. Maio, D. Maltoni, N. Houmani, S. Garcia-Salicetti and A. Mayoue, "Fingerprint and On-Line Signature Verification Competitions at ICB 2009", in proceedings International Conference on Biometrics (ICB), Alghero, Italy, pp.725-732, June 2009.
Current status of the project
Two competitions based on FVC-onGoing benchmarks were organized in conjunction with the 6th IAPR International Conference on Biometrics (ICB-2013): STFV@ICB-2013 (Secure Template Fingerprint Verification) and FIDX@ICB-2013 (Fingerprint Indexing).
Two competitions based on FVC-onGoing benchmarks were organized in conjunction with the 5th IEEE International Conference on Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems (BTAS2012): PVC@BTAS12 (Palmprint Verification) and FOE@BTAS12 (Fingerprint Orientation Extraction).
A competition based on FVC-onGoing benchmarks was organized in conjunction with the International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB 11).
FVC-onGoing started accepting algorithm submissions on June 22, 2009.
The FVC-onGoing system was presented in June 2009 at ICB2009.
