The human-centric multimedia analysis is one of the fundamental
problems in multimedia understanding. It is a very challenging problem
that involves multiple tasks such as face detection and recognition,
human pose estimation, action recognition, human-object interaction,
person re-identification, etc. Today, ubiquitous multimedia sensors
and large-scale computing infrastructures are producing at a rapid
velocity and a wide variety of big multi-modality data for
human-centric analysis, which provides rich knowledge to tackle these

In conjunction with ACM MM 2021, we are organizing the 2nd
International Workshop On Human-Centric Multimedia Analysis to: 1)
bring together the state-of-the-art research on human-centric
multimedia analysis; 2) call for a coordinated effort to understand
the opportunities and challenges in human-centric multimedia analysis;
3) identify key tasks and evaluate the state-of-the-art methods; 4)
showcase innovative methodologies and ideas; 5) introduce interesting
real-world human-centric multimedia analysis systems or applications;
and 6) propose new real-world datasets and discuss future
directions. We solicit original research in (but not limited to) the
following topics:

- Face detection, recognition, and anti-spoofing 
- Face landmark detection and parsing
- Human detection and tracking
- Human pose estimation and parsing
- Human 3D shape estimation and reconstruction
- Person re-identification and gait recognition
- Human action recognition and localization
- Activity recognition using non-visual sensors
- Huma-computer interaction
- Human object interaction
- Multimedia event detection
- Human crowd analysis
