================================================================ \"WHAT\'S IN A FACE?\" ECCV 2012 WORKSHOP 12 OCTOBER 2012 https://sites.google.com/site/wiaf2012/ ================================================================ The \"What s in a Face?\" workshop aims to provide a forum for interdisciplinary exchange on the topic of human face. The interdisciplinary aspect will promote a lively exchange of ideas between researchers in computer vision, biometrics, cognitive psychology and forensics. This exchange will be facilitated by invited talks from leading researchers in these disciplines. Additionally, a panel session will be conducted to bring to the fore new perspectives and promote active collaboration between these disciplines. Computer vision sees the human face as a natural object and aims to perform the tasks of detection, tracking, coding and matching from images and videos. The task of facial recognition, for the purpose of establishing human identity, is the central focus in biometrics, where face images have also been used to deduce soft biometric attributes such as an individual s age, gender and ethnicity. In forensics, local facial features such as moles, scars, tattoos and wrinkles have been used to validate identity in one-to-one matching cases involving photos. In speech forensics, face videos have been used in conjunction with audio streams to enhance the reliability of speech recognition through the use of audio-visual cues. Real-time face tracking, coupled with the use of soft biometric features, has allowed for new applications, such as continuous user monitoring and authentication in work environments. In cognitive vision and social psychology, videos and images of faces have been analyzed to infer an individual s emotional state or to detect interpersonal deception. The neuropsychological processes pertaining to how humans recognize faces has also been actively studied over several decades. From a medical perspective, face images may also offer information about an individual s health. More recently, facial images have been used to study familial relationships. The above observations lead to the tantalizing question: \"What s in a Face?\" We invite high quality contributions on the following topics: - Novel 2D and 4D face recognition algorithms - Neuropsychology of face recognition in humans - Face understanding in social/cognitive psychology - Face behaviometrics - Age, gender and race prediction from faces - Emotion and deception detection from faces - Familial relationships from face images - Facial forensics based on scars, moles, tattoos - Facial micro-expressions - Detection of social intent from faces - Recognition of attentional focus ================================================================ IMPORTANT DATES July 3, 2012: Paper Submission Deadline July 30, 2012: Decision Notification August 5, 2012: Camera-ready Paper Due October 12, 2012: Full Day Workshop ================================================================ WEBSITE: https://sites.google.com/site/wiaf2012/ PAPER SUBMISSION SITE: https://sites.google.com/site/wiaf2012/paper-submission ================================================================ ORGANIZERS: Arun Ross, West Virginia University Antitza Dantcheva, West Virginia University Alice O\'Toole, University of Texas at Dallas Maja Pantic, Imperial College London Stefanos Zafeiriou, Imperial College London ================================================================
