FPiV'04 (jointly with CVPR'04)
Related upcoming events:
Nagoya, Japan - May 18-20, 2005.
Following the rapid development of the video-based technologies and the success of the
First Workshop on†Face Processing in Video†(FPiV'04)
which was held in Washington, DC, jointly with CVPR'04, the Second
Workshop on† Face Processing in Video (FPiV'05) will be held in 2005 in Victoria, British Columbia,
Canada. This time it will be held under the umbrella of CRV'05
- the Canadian Conference on Computer & Robot Vision (formerly Vision
Interface), which is the
oldest international conference on Computer Vision and Pattern
Recognition annually held in Canada.
As many of its predecessors, CRV'05 will be held jointly with AI'05 and GI'05:
(Canadian conferences on Artificial Intelligence / Graphics Interface). The
FPiV'05 workshop attendees will have therefore opportunity to attend all three conferences.
Conversely, the FPiV'05 Workshop is open to all AI/GI/CRV'2005
Aims. The goal of the
FPiV'05 workshop is to provide a forum for scientists from different backgrounds:
biological vision, computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning, computer-human interaction -
to share their experiences and discuss the problems in the area of Face Processing in Video, and, as a result, to produce a collection of
high-quality papers addressing these problems.
NB. As in the past,
the focus of the workshop is dealing with video data, i.e. with data coming from video
footage, rather than data coming from photo-cameras or laser scanners.
Workshop Layout. The workshop will be held on the last day of the joint
conferences and will have a single track consisting of oral presentations. The
three days preceding the workshop offer the workshop attendees the opportunity
to attend the other conferences and will also feature the reception, banquet
and the GI-sponsored electronic theatre.
Workshop proceedings. The papers
accepted for the workshop are published by IEEE Computer Society Press as part of the
CRV'05 Proceedings, the hardcopy of which will be distributed at the
CRV'05 conference. The proceedings are also automatically archived into the IEEE Computer Society's digital library and
the IEEE's XPlore and IEL digital libraries and indexed through the
INSPEC indexing service. See workshop papers link.
Any paper analyzing video
for the presence of information
about faces is welcomed for submission. However , the preference will be given
to those papers which clearly indicate in the abstract a) what is a
challenging problem the paper addresses and b) what the paper contributions
are. Application-oriented papers are as much welcome as theoretical papers.
The suggested research areas are listed below (from theory-driven to
application-driven), but other topics dealing with the face in video scenario
neurobiological and neuro-computational approaches to visual
synergy between biological and computer vision
face segmentation and detection in video
face tracking and multiple faces tracking
face memorization, classification recognition from video
face biometrics and face modeling, 3d face models
facial features for tracking and recognition
face representation, canonical face models, face in video databases
face synthesis, mimicking and animation
facial expression recognition and classification, and representation
fusing different modalities of video information (motion, colour, intensity)
performance evaluation for face in video problems
face detection/tracking/recognition in multi-camera setups & stereo
face detection/tracking/recognition in panoramic video
combining video and audio for speaker face detection/recognition
face-based multi-media, games, and computer-human interaction
perceptual face-controlled interfaces
face processing for video-conferencing
face processing for computer-generated communication programs
face processing for immersive and collaborative environments
face processing for industry for disabled
face processing for augmented and virtualized reality
face processing for security and surveillance
face processing for encoding and annotating video
Size. Papers should be full size and complete, eight
double-column pages maximum (additional pages at $250 per page). They
should not include any information that would indicate the authorís
identity (references to authorsí previous work should be left blank).
Papers should be formatted using the IEEE paper submission
guidelines described in the
Author Instructions page. Formatting Templates for latex
and Word are also available here: LaTeX,
How to submit. Submission of papers is done by emailing
them as PDF files to the Program Chairs at the email address
Reviewing Process. Reviewing is
blind. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three Program Committee
members. The goal is to have as vigorous and fair reviewing of all
papers as possible.
Poster and demo submission
FPiV'05 Posters and Demos will not be published in the
will have however the same exposure to the attendees of the joint AI/GI/CRV
conferences as GI
posters and CRV posters and
will be listed both on the FPiV'05 website and in the joint
conferences programs. They will be presented in a separate
multi-hour plenary interactive session, thus without competing with the oral presentations for attendance.
How to submit:
Email the extended abstract as attachment to Program Chairs with the subject "FPiV'05 poster/demo submission".
message body should contain the title of the poster/demo and the contact
information for the main author.
January 30, 2005: Paper Submission
February 21, 2005: Notification of acceptance / rejection
March 4, 2005: Final Papers are submitted to IEEE Publisher.
April 23, 2005: Proposals for posters and demos
May 8-11, 2005: The CRV/AI/GI conferences are
May 11, 2005: FPiV'05 workshop is held
Who can attend: Participation in the FPiV'05 workshop without submitting a paper is
welcomed. For a single registration fee, the workshop participants will also be able to attend the joint conferences.
Conversely, the FPiV'05 Workshop is open to all AI/GI/CRV'2005
Cost and membership: This conference promotes participation of students by
significantly reducing the student registration fee. There is
also a reduction in registration fees for CIPPRS members and
IEEE members. CIPPRS welcomes members from all countries.
In order to register for the workshop, you will have to
follow the same procedure as to register
for the CRV'2005!
- Follow the following address:
Vancouver island where the city of Victoria is situated, is one of the most spectacular places in Canada, while
Victoria itself, one of the oldest
cities in Canada, is considered to be one of the Canadian gems.
To reduce the costs, the workshop and the joint conferences will be held on the campus of the University of Victoria.
