IEEE SPS 5-Minute Video Clip Contest - ICASSP2023
Call for Video: Secure Multimodal Behaviometrics
The 5-Minute Video Clip Contest, called the 5-MICC, is an annual competition at the IEEE ICASSP and ICIP conferences. The competition aims to encourage the signal processing community to explain concepts in an innovative way using a video. The winners will be selected based on the quality of their project, novelty, clarity of presentation, and creativity.
The topic chosen for ICASSP2023 is multimodal biometrics and behavior analysis, also known as multimodal behavioral biometrics or behaviometrics. Facial biometrics have recently gained popularity thanks to the development of accurate recognition models and the introduction of powerful and compact cameras, such as those in smartphones. Facial motion, though less used, is known to contain behavior information related to age and identity, while speech is a widely used biometric. This competition aims to highlight the potential of signal processing within a multimodal framework to design trustworthy, secured multimodal behaviometrics that can operate in everyday life.
The submitted videos can cover any theoretical and practical aspects of how signal processing can be used to exploit the strong connection between facial dynamics (biometrics + behavior analysis) and speech to develop behaviometrics that are difficult to spoof and can be cancellable if compromised. The scope includes solutions for new multimodal behaviometrics, their applications, and multimodal behaviometrics authentication systems, for example, cancellable biometrics, de-identification techniques, deep-fake video detection, and presentation attack detection.
The contest is open for submissions from IEEE SPS members, including undergraduate and graduate students of all majors, as well as researchers from all over the world. Each team must be composed of:
i. One faculty member (the Supervisor)
ii. At most one graduate student (the Tutor),
iii. At least three but no more than five undergraduate students. At least three undergraduate team members must be either IEEE SPS student members or SPS members by the time they submit the full 5-minute video (see below).
Organizers – Information Forensics and Security Technical Committee:

Tanaya Guha, University of Glasgow, UK
There will be three stages for the call
1. Submission of 30-Second Trailers:
Submission deadline: March 14th, 2023
Announcement of the best 10 teams: March 19th, 2023
Each submission should include a report, in the form of an IEEE conference paper, up to 2 pages, on the main idea/concept of the full video that will be submitted with the related written script. The selected best 10 teams will be identified and invited to send the final 5-minute video to participate in the final competition.
2. Submission of the Full 5-Minute Video:
Submission deadline: April 9th, 2023
Announcement of the 3 best videos: April 14th, 2023
Three finalist teams will be selected by the organizing TC.
3. Final Contest at ICASP 2023 in Rhode Island, Greece
Conference dates: June 4-9, 2023
Videos available on public voting platform:1 May - 5 June, 2023. The final ranking will be decided by the judging panel, also taking into account the popular vote. The winners and final team ranking will be announced during the conference.
