Are you a developer of lossless-data-compression software, or do you
know somebody who is or has an interest in this topic? A new lossless
data compression contest is started: the Global Data Compression
This event targets developers and owners of lossless-compression
software (compressors). This year it will cover text data, images,
mixed data from executable files, and small-block compression. Also,
the competition includes multiple speed categories for different compressors—such as universal, text specific, lossless image
processing, and quantitative-data processing—whether designed for
fast compression or maximum compression ratio.
Winners will receive substantial monetary prizes and formal awards. The
total prize pool this year is 50,000 EUR. Submissions will be accepted
until November 20.
Check out https://globalcompetition.compression.ru to learn more about
the event and how to participate. You’re welcome to join in or just
track the forthcoming leaderboards!
The competition is organized by Moscow State University Graphics &
Media Lab (www.compression.ru/video), sponsored by Huawei, and
supported by Encode.su, the biggest online forum for discussing data compression.
