Workshop on 3D Face Biometrics
In conjunction with the 10th IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG 2013)

Shanghai, China – April 22-26, 2013


Call for papers

Advances during the last decades have made high quality acquisition of 3D faces a reality. 3D scanning devices are now available not only in the form of Hi-res scanner which are able to acquire registered texture and range data from static environments but also 4D scanning devices that are able to acquire range data over time so as to capture the dynamics of 3D. In the meantime, much progress has been achieved in 3D face analysis and recognition methods, albeit in very controlled settings. Some topics, however, have yet to be thoroughly explored. On the one hand, the availability of Hi-res data from the environment is expected to boost the accuracy of recognition systems. On the other hand, the availability of a broad range of devices, differing in terms of resolution, poses new challenges and research issues addressing not only the impact of low resolution data on the recognition accuracy but also the integration and combination of different modalities – 2D still, 2D video, 3D still, 3D video – to improve the recognition accuracy. Furthermore, it has been shown that “soft” biometrics (gender, age, ethnicity, etc.) can complement the identity information provided by other biometrics to improve the accuracy of recognition. This workshop focuses on 3D face analysis and recognition and is particularly aimed at exploring ways to extract and effectively exploit still as well as dynamic facial features for recognition. Areas of coverage include, but are not limited to, 3D face detection, analysis, and recognition; gender, ethnicity and age classification from 3D data; analysis of facial expressions; multimodal 2D/3D face recognition; super-resolution facial models.

Submission Instructions

Papers should be prepared according to the IEEE specification. General info and the templates can be found at the Workshop website. Submissions may be up to eight pages in conference paper format. Papers longer than six pages will be subject to a page fee for the extra pages (two max). Submissions may be in doc, docx, or pdf format, and are limited to a 10MB file size.

All papers will receive a "double blind" peer-review. Therefore, submissions should be appropriately anonymized to not reveal the authors or authors' institutions.
