Special sessions

The organizers of FG 2019 invite proposals for Special Sessions to be held during the main conference, which will be held from May 15 – May 17, 2019 in Lille, France.

Proposals may be submitted on any topic that falls into the broader area of face and gesture recognition, modeling and analysis. We particularly encourage proposals that highlight emerging new fields, application domains and challenges related to face and gesture as well as interdisciplinary topics that bring new perspectives to the FG community. These Special Sessions will emphasize “Frontiers in FG” in the face and gesture recognition research field. It is possible to propose panels in this category. Proposers should have a strong record in the proposed field. If the Special Session is accepted, proposers will act as area chairs and supervise the reviewing process of the papers marked for the Special Session.

Submission Guidelines

A proposal must include the following information:

  • The title of the proposed Special Session or Panel.A brief description of the topic, including how it stands apart from the regular FG topics/sessions.Contact information and short bio of the organizers.
  • For a Special Session: a list of proposed contributions to the special session (including authors, title, and short abstract).
  • For a Panel: a list of proposed panelists and their expected perspectives/contributions. Paper preparation and review details.

Special Session papers will be part of the conference proceedings and will be reviewed along with the regular conference submissions. Papers submitted to a Special Session should describe original work and should follow the general FG submission guidelines.
