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 attendees.

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.

Paper submission

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 are welcome.

neurobiological and neuro-computational approaches to visual  perception
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, Word.

How to submit.  Submission of papers is done by emailing them as PDF files to the Program Chairs at the email address given above. 

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

Layout: FPiV'05 Posters and Demos will not be published in the Proceedings. They 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". The message body should contain the title of the poster/demo and the contact information for the main author. 

Important dates:

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 deadline
May 8-11, 2005:  The CRV/AI/GI conferences are held.
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 attendees.

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.
