Workshops and tutorials

Here you can find information on the workshops and tutorials organized at the 2019 IEEE Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition in Lille, France. Accepted workshops and tutorials will be held on either May 14 or May 18, 2019, in the same venue as the FG 2019 main conference, namely, Lille Grand Palais. We are still soliciting tutorial proposals (see below).

The workshop paper submission, review, acceptance notification, and final manuscript due must all be handled until February 27, 2019 (camera-ready workshop paper due date).

Important dates

  • Workshop camera ready papers due: 27 February 2019
  • Tutorial proposals due: 28 January 2019 (new)
  • Tutorial decisions: 4 February 2019

The main conference will provide rooms, equipment, and coffee breaks for the workshops and tutorials. If necessary, poster facilities will be offered. For each workshop one complimentary registration for a keynote speaker is available. For any additional questions please contact the workshop, tutorial, and special session chairs.

Tutorial proposal submission

Tutorial proposals must be sent to the FG 2019 Workshop, Tutorial, and Special Session Co-chairs, Stefano Berretti ( and Albert Ali Salah (, with email subject “FG 2019 Tutorial Proposal: [title of your tutorial]”. A proposal should include the following information to facilitate the decision process:

  • Tutorial title
  • Proposer’s contact information and short CV
  • Names of any additional lecturers and short CV
  • Tutorial description and description of relevance to the FG community and an evaluation plan
  • References and experience of the instructors with respect to the proposed tutorial topic
  • Planned length of the tutorial
  • List of relevant tutorials recently presented in other conferences
  • Requirements (e.g., facilities, Internet access, etc.)
  • Other useful information (e.g., estimated attendance, slides/notes available, etc.).

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their estimated benefit for the community and their fit within the tutorials program as a whole. Factors to be considered include: relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half or full day format; past experience and qualifications of the instructors. Selection will also be based on the overall distribution of topics, expected attendance, and specialties of the intended audiences.
