14th IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition Call for Papers

Call for Papers: FG 2019

The 14th IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture
Recognition (FG 2019) will be held in Lille, France, 14 -18 May
2019. The IEEE conference series on Automatic Face and Gesture
Recognition is the premier international forum for research in image
and video-based face, gesture, and body movement recognition. Its
broad scope includes: advances in fundamental computer vision, pattern
recognition and computer graphics; machine learning techniques
relevant to face, gesture, and body motion; new algorithms and

Traditionally, FG had a single category  Long Paper which is up to
8 pages. This time in FG 2018, a new category (Short Paper) is
added. Authors should carefully consider the category before
submitting a paper.

- Short paper: 4 pages + 1 page for references
- Long paper: 8 pages (including references)

The main difference between the two is in the size of contributions
and not in their importance or technical quality. In other words, a
long paper is expected to have a greater contribution than a short
paper. More specifically:

Long papers should present original reports of substantive new
research techniques, findings, and applications. They should place the
work within the field and clearly indicate innovative
aspects. Research procedures and technical methods should be presented
in sufficient detail to ensure scrutiny and reproducibility. Results
should be clearly communicated and implications of the
contributions/findings for FG and beyond should be explicitly

Short papers (4 pages + 1 page for references) should present original
and highly promising research or applications. Merit will be assessed
in terms of originality, importance, and technical quality more so
than scope and maturity of the work.

Paper submission deadline: 28 September 2018
Notification deadline: 21 January 2019
Workshops, tutorials and Challenges: 14 and 18 May 2019
Main Conference: 15 to 17 May 2019
