======== Explanation of Eye Generation Challenge ========
This task requires to generate a realistic eye-image, I, from a given semantic segmentation mask, M, of the same person, P. We have provided three JSON files in the shared data folder to map the eye-images to different subjects in the Train, Val and Test datasets. Please use the provided “image/mask to identity” map and generate realistic eye-images for a given segmentation mask of the same subject. For this task, you can use all the training image/mask and try to achieve the best performance on the given test set of semantic segmentation masks. The metric used for measuring the performance is L2 distance from the original eye-image.
For example- The file “OpenEDS_test_userID_mapping_to_images.json” contains user-id as the key and all the files (images/masks) from the segmentation dataset (in the key: “semantic_segmenation_images” from the folder Semantic_Segmentation_Dataset) and generative dataset (in the key: “generative_images” from Generative_Dataset) associated with the user-id .
In order to find the <UID> for a given test sample 000000336338.npy find the user-id by only using the name 000000336338 (without the extension) in the given OpenEDS_test_userID_mapping_to_images.json and that will also retrieve the list of images and masks for the same ID in test subest of Semantic_Segmentation_Dataset and Generative_Dataset, which you can use to generate realistic eye-image.
======== Notification of Paper Submission ========
This is a notification that the deadline of paper submission to ICCV workshop regarding OpenEDS challenges has changed.
Please note that there is a two tier submission, and the major difference with early deadline is that the accepted paper will appear in ICCV workshop proceedings. See table below for the two tiers.
|Tier 1||Tier 2|
|Paper submission deadline||Aug 19th||Aug 31st|
|Paper acceptance notification deadline||Aug 25th||Sept 15th|
|Camera Ready Deadline||Aug 30th||Sept 27th|
|Publication||* ICCV workshop proceedings||* Archived on IEEE Xplore|

======== Common information regarding paper submission ========
The challenge deadline remains the same, , which will close on Sept 15th.
Deadline to submit paper is stated in above table.
Specifically, (1) the first deadline is for folks who want to submit manuscript and are interested in seeing their paper (if accepted) appear in ICCV workshop proceedings; (2) the second deadline is for folks who are not ready to submit paper or do not necessarily care about the paper appearing in ICCV workshop proceedings.
For challenge participants they are welcome to submit papers to meet either of the two deadlines.
For winners, we expect the authors to submit paper, which are considered accepted, i.e the challenge winning papers will not undergo formal review if submitted after the challenge ends.
The reason for changes and steps ahead: The two deadlines are the result of changes in the ICCV publication requirements, which was informed to us recently. Specifically, the first deadline is for folks who want to submit manuscript and are interested in seeing their paper (if accepted) appear in ICCV workshop proceedings. The second deadline is for folks who are not ready to submit paper or do not necessarily care about the paper appearing in ICCV workshop proceedings. Note, for challenge participants they are welcome to submit papers to meet either of the two deadlines. For winners however, we expect the authors to submit paper, which are considered accepted, i.e the challenge winning papers will not undergo formal review if submitted after the challenge ends.
