AFGR 2013 : 10 th IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition
Call For Papers
The IEEE Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition is the premier international forum
for research in image and video-based face, gesture, and body movement recognition. Its broad
scope includes: advances in fundamental computer vision, pattern recognition, computer graphics;
machine learning techniques relevant to face, gesture and body motion; new algorithms and
applications. The program will consist of single-track oral presentations and poster sessions.
Submissions will be rigorously reviewed and should clearly make the case for a documented
improvement over the existing state of the art. FG 2013 will be held in Shanghai, which is the
economic and financial centre of China. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
x Face recognition, analysis and synthesis
x Gesture recognition, analysis and synthesis
x Body motion analysis and synthesis, and action recognition
x Psychological and behavioral analysis
x Technologies and applications
Submissions: Paper submissions may be up to eight pages in conference format. Papers longer than
six pages will be subject to a page fee for the extra pages (two max). Submissions to FG 2013 should
have no substantial overlap with any other paper already submitted or published, or to be
submitted during the FG 2013 review period. Papers presented at FG 2013 will appear in the IEEE
Xplore digital library. The best FG 2013 papers will be selected for a special issue of Image and
Vision Computing. Submission details are available on the conference website.
Workshops and Tutorials: Workshops and tutorials will be held on April 22 and April 26. Submission
details for workshop and tutorial proposals are available on the conference website.
Special Sessions: The special sessions will emphasize “Frontiers in FG”. Submission details for
special sessions are available on the conference website.
Demos and Exhibition: Demo sessions will give the opportunity to present, in an interactive setting,
new methods and technologies. An exhibition session will feature exhibits from industry to inform
the FG community about commercialization of research results, stimulate discussion about the state
of the art, share findings between related communities, and generate ideas for new research.
Conference Venue: The conference will be held at the Majesty Plaza Hotel, which is ideally located
in the center of the city, and is easily accessed by subway, bus, and taxi. The hotel is adjacent to the
famous Nanjing Road pedestrian street, where people can walk to major attractions and shopping.
