Paper Abstract

We present the results of the third Optical/IR Interferometry Imaging Beauty Contest. A formal comparison is presented of the performance of algorithms used for imaging data from optical/infrared long-baseline interferometers. The contest consists of blind imaging of test data sets derived from model sources and distributed in the OI-FITS format. The test data consisted of datasets on two objects each "observed" in J, H, and K bands. The majority of the entries produced accurate reconstructions of the initial models. Each of the methods presented is discussed.
