Rank list format for SHREC 2009 - Shape Retrieval Contest on a New Generic Shape Benchmark

The participants should submit one seperate rank list file for each model in the query set. The file must be an ASCII file and the filename should be the same as the query model.

The first line should contain the name of the query model.

Each of the following lines should contain the name of the retrieved target model and its distance to the query model in the order of decreasing similarity. The name and the distance should be seperated by white space.

For the track "Generic retrieval on new benchmark", there are 80 query models, so the participants should submit 80 seperate rank-list files in the required format. The files should be collected in a single archive file and the name of the archive file should indicate the retrieval method. The archive file should be sent via e-mail. If the participants have more than one method, they should submit an archive file per method containing the 80 rank-list files (the filename should indicate the method).

An example rank list file can be downloaded here: Q00003
