Dear List,

for those of you interested - we are happy to announce that the deadlines could be slightly extended: 

                         CALL FOR PAPERS
 2011 IEEE Int'l Workshop on CVPR for Human Communicative Behavior Analysis
                            CVPR4HB 2011

 June 25, 2011 -- Colorado Springs, held in conjunction with CVPR-2011


A widely accepted prediction is that computing will move to the
background, weaving itself into the fabric of our everyday living
spaces and projecting the human user into the foreground. Due to this
vision of the future, automated analysis of human behavior, including
facial expression, hand and body gesture, and linguistic and
nonlinguistic vocalization, have attracted increasing attention from
Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence research communities.

The CVPR4HB workshops are aimed towards bringing together scientists
from a wide range of theoretical and application areas whose work
impacts machine analysis of human communicative behavior. Its goal is
to provide a state-of-the-art overview of paradigms and challenges in
the research on machine analysis of human spontaneous behavior,
including affective and social signaling.

The 4th CVPR4HB workshop will be held in Colorado Springs, held in
conjunction with CVPR-2011.

We seek to attract contributions representing the state-of-the-art
efforts to develop algorithms that can process naturally occurring
human affective and social communication and decode communicative

Relevant topics for the workshop include but are by no means limited to:
 .       Human affect analysis and Affective computing
 .       Social Signal Processing and Socially-aware computing
 .       Facial expression analysis
 .       Vocal and audiovisual expression analysis
 .       Human gesture and action recognition
 .       Multimodal human behavior analysis
 .       Multimodal data fusion
 .       Perceptual and multimodal user interfaces
 .       Sign language analysis and recognition
 .       Deception detection
 .       Ambient intelligence
 .       Databases for training and testing

The program will be single track with posters.


April 8, 2011: Deadline for paper submission
April 25, 2011: Acceptance notification
April 29, 2011: Final camera-ready papers due in electronic form
