FRCSyn: Face Recognition Challenge in the Era of Synthetic Data Call for Papers

 We are thrilled to announce that 
FRCSyn: Face Recognition Challenge in the Era of Synthetic Data
organized at IEEE/CVF WACV 2024 is now open. 
Join us in this exciting challenge!


This challenge intends to explore the application of synthetic data to
the field of face recognition in order to find solutions to the
current limitations existed in the technology, for example, in terms
of privacy concerns associated with real data, bias in demographic
groups (e.g., ethnicity and gender), and lack of performance in
challenging conditions such as large age gaps between enrolment and
testing, pose variations, occlusions etc.

Summary paper: The best teams of each sub-task will be invited to
contribute as co-authors in the summary paper of the FRCSyn
challenge. This paper will be published in the proceedings of the WACV
2024 conference. In addition, top performers will be invited to
present their methods at the workshop. This presentation can be
virtual.
