We invite workshop and challenge proposals for the 2020 IEEE Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG2020) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Accepted workshops will be held on either May 18 or May 22, 2020, in the same venue as the FG2020 main conference.
We solicit workshops and proposals on any topic of interests to the FG community. Complementary to the main venue, we especially encourage workshop and/or challenge proposals that are stemmed from emerging new fields or new application domains related to face and gesture analysis and synthesis. Interdisciplinary topics that could attract a significant cross-section of the community are highly valued. Workshop organizers who have a strong track record in the field are strongly encouraged to submit a proposal.
The workshop paper submission, review, acceptance notification, and final manuscript due must all be handled between February 1st, 2020 (deadline for workshop papers) and February 28th, 2020 (camera-ready workshop/challenge paper due date). Financial support from the main conference is not guaranteed and is depending on budget. The deadline for all workshop and challenge proposals is September 27, 2019. Decisions will be made by October 11th, 2019.
The main conference will provide rooms, equipment, and coffee breaks for the workshops. 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 and challenge organizers.
