Workshop to be held in conjunction with ECCV 2012 12th October 2012

The topic of human facial analysis has engaged researchers in multiple fields including computer vision, biometrics, forensics, cognitive psychology and medicine. Interest in this topic has been fuelled by scientific advances that suggest insight into a person's identity, intent, attitude as well as health solely based on their face images. The "What's in a Face?" workshop aims to provide a forum for interdisciplinary exchange on the topic of human face. The interdisciplinary aspect will promote a lively exchange of ideas between researchers in computer vision, biometrics, cognitive psychology and forensics. This exchange will be facilitated by invited talks from leading researchers in these disciplines. Additionally, a panel session will be conducted to bring to the fore new perspectives and promote active collaboration between these disciplines.

Call for Papers We invite high quality, original contributions on the following topics:

- Novel 2D and 4D face recognition algorithms

- Neuropsychology of face recognition in humans

- Face understanding in social/cognitive psychology

- Face behaviometrics

- Age, gender and race prediction from faces

- Emotion and deception detection from faces

- Familial relationships from face images

- Facial forensics based on scars, moles, tattoos

- Facial micro-expressions

- Detection of social intent from faces

- Recognition of attentional focus

Papers must be submitted online through the ECCV 2012 CMT submission system and will be peer-reviewed by the program committee. Submissions should adhere to the main ECCV 2012 proceedings style, and have a maximum length of 10 pages. Papers accepted and presented at the workshop will be published in the ECCV 2012 conference proceedings.
