We invite the participants to enter a demonstration competition of applications of gesture recognition with KinectTM. At ICPR 2012, the participants will demonstrate their system and be judged by a panel of experts, who will grade them according to pre-defined criteria:
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.
