Micro-expressions are very rapid and involuntary facial expressions, which indicate the suppressed or concealed emotions and can lead to many potential applications. Recently, research in micro-expression spotting obtains increasing attention. By investigating existing methods, we realize that evaluation standards of micro-expression spotting methods are highly desired. To address this issue, we construct a benchmark for fairer and better performance evaluation of micro-expression spotting approaches. Firstly, we propose a sliding window based multi-scale evaluation standard with a series of protocols. Secondly, baseline results of popular features are provided. Finally, we also raise the concerns of taking advantages of machine learning techniques.
