International Workshop on Disguised Faces in the Wild Call for Papers

With recent advancements in deep learning, the capabilities of
automatic face recognition have been significantly increased. However,
face recognition in unconstrained environments with non-cooperative
users is still a research challenge, pertinent for users such as law
enforcement agencies. While several covariates such as pose,
expression, illumination, aging, and low resolution have received
significant attention, “disguise” is still considered an arduous
covariate of face recognition. Disguise as a covariate involves both
intentional and unintentional changes on a face through which one can
either obfuscate his/her identity or impersonate someone else’s

Owing to the challenging and less explored nature of the problem, we
would like to invite researchers to participate in the International
Workshop on Disguised Faces in the Wild (DFW) at ICCV2019
( Researchers are also
encouraged to participate in the DFW2019 Competition
( held in conjunction
with the workshop, which is in continuation to the DFW2018 competition
held at CVPR2018.

Workshop paper submission deadline: July 31st, 2019 
Camera ready deadline: August 30th, 2019
