Call for Papers

       Third IEEE International Workshop on 
   Analysis and Modeling of Faces and Gestures (AMFG)


        October 20, 2007 
         Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

            (in conjunction with ICCV2007)

During the last 30 years, face recognition and related problems such as
face detection/tracking, facial expression recognition have attracted 
researchers from both the engineering and psychology communities. In 
addition, extensive research has been carried out to study hand and body 
gestures, human activities and behaviors. The understanding of how humans 
perceive these important cues has significant scientific value and extensive
applications. For example, human-computer interaction, video indexing,
visual surveillance are active application areas. Aiming towards putting 
such amazing perception capability onto computer systems, researchers
have made substantial progress. However, technological challenges still
exist in many aspects.

This one-day workshop (AMFG'07) will provide a focused international 
forum to bring together researchers and research groups to review the
status of recognition, analysis and modeling of face, gesture, activity & 
behavior, to discuss the challenges that we are facing, and to explore 
future directions. The workshop will consist of two to three invited 
talks contributed by highly-respected experts, regular papers (oral and 
poster) and demos. Original high-quality papers are solicited on topics 
including, but not limited to,

 1. Advanced methods, including mathematical tools, novel sensors and
    algorithms for face & gesture modeling, analysis and recognition.
 2. Novel applications in which detection, tracking and recognition of 
    face and gesture can be reliably accomplished.
 3. Efficient computational methods to implement advanced algorithms
    for real-time systems.
 4. Psychology studies that can help us build better systems. 
 5. Motion analysis, tracking and extraction of 3D face structure from
    image sequences using single or multiple cameras
 6. Detection and recognition of face objects under large 3D rotations,
    illumination changes, partial occlusions, aging, etc. 
 7. Face/Gait detection and recognition in low-quality, low-resolution
    surveillance video.
 8. Demonstration of face recognition in outdoor environments.
 9. Dynamics and learning for gesture, activity, and behavior interpretation. 
 10. Fusion of multi-modalities such as face and gesture.

We allow ICCV dual submission but NOT dual publication. Submitted papers 
will undergo a double-blind reviewing process by three program committee
members. Accepted papers will be included in a proceeding published by
Springer-Verlag. We expect to have several awards along with cash.
