What are the main iris recognition competitions?

From Antispoofing Wiki

Several iris recognition competitions are hosted.

At least 11 imain iris recognition challenges are dedicated to iris recognition. The first competition of this kind, titled Iris Challenge Evaluation (ICE) was launched by the NIST in 2005. ICE explored correlation between left/right irises as a way to achieve higher accuracy.

Noisy Iris Challenge Evaluation (NICE) took place in 2008 focusing on the effective iris image denosing techniques — the measure would help solutions working in real-life environments.

Other challenges include Iris Exchange (IREX), Competition on Iris Recognition (ICIR), Mobile Iris Challenge Evaluation (MICE), etc. However, these challenges didn’t focus on anti-spoofing.
