Symmetry is a pervasive phenomenon presenting itself in all forms and scales in natural and manmade environments. Its detection plays an essential role at all levels of human as well as machine perception. The recent resurging interest in computational symmetry for computer vision and computer graphics applications has motivated us to conduct a US NSF funded symmetry detection algorithm competition as a workshop affiliated with the Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) Conference 2011

In this report we explain the evaluation metric and the automatic evaluation workflow. We also present and analyze the algorithms submitted, and show their results on three test sets of real world images depicting reflection, rotation and translation symmetries respectively. This competition establishes a performance baseline for future work on symmetry detection.
