Proceedings:

The results of the challenge will be published in a special topic of the Journal of Machine Learning Research on Gesture Recognition. The collection of papers will also be printed as a book in the Challenges in Machine Learning series of Microtome. See the call-for-papers.

Slides of the presentations:

The results were presented at two workshop, where we also ran live contests: CVPR 2012 and at ICPR 2012.

We also made a video with the results.

Fact sheets:

The competitors of both rounds one had to fill out fact sheets on their methods.
