© 2019 IEEE. This paper summarizes the results of the Sclera Segmentation Benchmarking Competition (SSBC 2019). It was organized in the context of the 12th IAPR International Conference on Biometrics (ICB 2019). The aim of this competition was to record the developments on sclera segmentation in the cross-resolution environment (sclera trait captured using multiple acquiring sensors with different image resolutions). Additionally, the competition also aimed to gain the attention of researchers on this subject of research.For the purpose of benchmarking, we have employed two datasets of sclera images captured using different sensors. The first dataset was collected using a DSLR camera and the second one was collected using a mobile phone camera. The first dataset is the Multi-Angle Sclera Dataset (MASD version 1). The second dataset is the Mobile Sclera Dataset (MSD), and in this dataset, images were captured using.a mobile phone rear camera of 8-megapixels. Baseline manual segmentation masks of the sclera images from both the datasets were developed.Precision and recall-based measures were employed to evaluate the effectiveness and ranking of the submitted segmentation techniques. Four algorithms were submitted to address the segmentation task. In this paper we analyzed the results produced by these algorithms/systems, and we have defined a way forward for this problem. Both the datasets along with some of the accompanying ground truth/baseline masks will be freely available for research purposes.
