Heterogeneous Face Recognition (HFR) Call for Papers




The international workshop on Heterogeneous Face Recognition (HFR)
will be held in conjunction with IEEE FG 2017 in Washington DC on May
30, 2017.

Face recognition research and development have focused primarily on
the visible spectrum. An emerging topic in face recognition is
matching between eterogeneous facial signatures acquired from
different sensing modalities. Heterogeneous face recognition (HFR) has
the potential to solve many challenging problems and provide key
capabilities for commercial, law enforcement, intelligence, and
military use. There is an emerging need for face recognition systems
specifically designed for the task of matching heterogeneous facial
signatures.This workshop is among the first to solicit proposals and
provide a platform for the face recognition community to promote
research on sensors and algorithms for heterogeneous face
recognition. This workshop will bring together experts and researchers
from academia, government, and law enforcement to present HFR research
and discuss future directions.

Topics of Interest

The topics of the workshop includes but are not limited to

    Sensors (visible, infrared, polarimetric, LiDAR, and emerging sensing technologies)
     Face detection and fiducial point labeling for HFR
     HFR scenarios:
    Infrared to visible
    Sketch (hand sketch, forensic sketch) to visible
    3D to 2D
    Low-resolution to high resolution
    Video to image

    Biometrics applications
    Surveillance, Law enforcement applications

The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format and should be no
more than 8 pages in IEEE FG 2017 paper format. The submitted papers
should present original work not currently under review elsewhere and
should have no substantial overlap with already published
work. Accepted papers will be included in the Proceedings of IEEE FG
2017 & Workshops and will be sent for inclusion into the IEEE Xplore
digital library.
