Call For Papers

Estimating 3D face shape from one or more images is a longstanding goal of computer vision. In the earliest work on shape-from-shading, researchers applied their algorithms to face images with little success. Advances during the last decade have seen the development of techniques that offer robust performance on real world images. Meanwhile, advances in structured light scanning and other non-standard sensing modalities have made high-end acquisition of 3D structure and motion a reality, albeit in controlled settings. A clear result to come from this work is that the processing of 3D face data requires techniques that span a number of fields. These include statistical shape modelling, non-linear optimisation, reflectance modelling, illumination estimation and shape-from-shading. These advances hold out the hope of estimating intrinsic properties of a face from single images or video streams. This is clearly attractive in the domain of face recognition where modelling appearance variation caused by large changes in pose, illumination and expression remains a key problem. Applications also lie in model acquisition for graphics applications, retouching faces in images (for example, adjusting expressions or illumination conditions) or even exchanging faces between images.

This Special Issue is associated with the workshop on "3D Face Processing" held in conjunction with the IEEE Computer Society Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR) held in Anchorage, Alaska in June 2008. Therefore, contributors to the workshop are particularly invited to submit papers. However, contribution to this Special Issue is open to all researchers working in the field and they are strongly encouraged to make a submission.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

3D morphable face models
2D+3D active appearance models
Face/skin reflectance modelling
Facial shape-from-shading and photometric stereo
Stereo for face images
Psychological or neuropsychological investigations into the role 3D information plays in face processing in humans
Structured light/Shape-from-X for face shape recovery
Estimation of illumination or shadowing from images
Modelling variation in appearance due to 3D shape using spherical harmonics, light fields etc
Dynamic 3D face processing in video images, e.g. tracking, modelling of expressions in 3D, use of motion capture data
Real-time 3D face scanning from video
Colour information for 3D face processing
Fusion of multimodal face information, e.g. 3D scans, high-speed video, high-resolution imaging
Data management for large 3D face data sets
Matching of partial or deformed scans

Applications of interest include:
Facial shape estimation
Recognition/classification using 3D information estimates from images
Facial retouching, expression/texture transfer, relighting using 3D models
Medical applications of 3D face modelling and facial expression analysis
