The paper presents results of the face verification contest that was organized in conjunction with International Conference on Pattern Recognition 2000. Participants had to use identical data sets from a large, publicly available multimodal database XM2VTSDB. Training and evaluation was carried out according to an a priori known protocol. Verification results of all tested algorithms have been collected and made public on the XM2VTSDB website, facilitating large scale experiments on classifier combination and fusion. Tested methods included, among others, representatives of the most common approaches to face verification - elastic graph macthing, Fisher's linear discriminant and Support Vector Machines.
