    GDC Competition: Notices

    Hi,
    Finally, a new contest for lossless data compression has arrived -- the Global Data Compression Competition.
    https://globalcompetition.compression.ru/
    This thread is only for notices related to the competition.
    There is another thread for discussions.

  2. Thanks (3):

    I'd like to clarify that this competition has 12 separate tasks ((3 data sets + blockwise test) x 3 speed categories), each with its own prizes.
    Its not necessary to make a universal solution.
    Also authors of existing codecs, including lossless image codecs, can just send their work as is, there's no need to do something special
    (except for blockwise test).
    We'd prefer if at least all relevant open-source codecs would be submitted by authors - to avoid random people claiming their prizes.

    Reference speed data for Test 2 (images) was added in https://globalcompetition.compression.ru/rules/

    Note that we use and will use a RAM disk for file I/O.

    There is a wording change in the Test 3 (mixed data) description. It does not really matter since this part is still not final. There are no approved Test 3 and Test 4 at the moment.

    Test 3 and Test 4 sets are now available.
    Small wording changes in set descriptions.

    Results for a number of publicly available compressors are published as reference data for Tests 1, 2, 3.
    Hopefully we will have a sufficient number of participants 1-2 months later to build the real leaderboards.
    https://globalcompetition.compression.ru/#leaderboards
    Also API for Test 4 is defined.
