The IEEE conference series on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition is the premier international forum for research in image and video-based face, gesture, and body movement recognition. Its broad scope includes advances in fundamental computer vision, pattern recognition, computer graphics, and machine learning techniques relevant to face, gesture, and body action algorithms, and analysis of specific applications. The program will be single-track with poster sessions. Submissions will be rigorously reviewed, and should clearly make the case for a documented improvement over the existing state of the art.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Face Recognition, Analysis & Synthesis: tracking/detection, recognition, expression analysis & synthesis, 3D analysis & synthesis, lip reading
  • Gesture Recognition, Analysis & Synthesis: gesture interpretation, head motion tracking, arm/limb analysis & synthesis, human body tracking, vision based human interfaces, life-like avatars
  • Psychological and Behavioral Analysis: facial behavior analysis, gesture recognition and variation, body gait movement analysis, measurement
  • Technologies and Applications: biometric applications, sensors, surveillance applications, feature selection and analysis, fusion of multiple modalities, human computer/robot interaction, socially-ware computing, reality mining
  • Body Action and Activity Recognition: body motion analysis, body movement analysis, gait recognition, human action and activity recognition


Paper Awards and Journal Special Issue: FG 2017 will include awards for best paper, best student paper, and best poster papers. The best FG’17 papers will be selected for a special issue of the Journal of Image and Vision Computing (This has not been confirmed).

Special Sessions: The three-day main conference will also include two or three Special Sessions to highlight research frontiers in the field of FG and the relevant opportunities in emerging thematic areas. These Special Sessions will emphasize “Frontiers in FG” in the face and gesture recognition research field.

Demo Sessions and Exhibition: Demo sessions will give researchers the opportunity to display, in an interactive setting, new methods and technologies, system prototypes, and experimental features of mature systems. An exhibition session will feature exhibits from industry to inform the research community of commercialization of research results in the field, initiate discussion about the state of the art in real-world applications, and cross-fertilize the knowledge and the ideas about the future of research.

Social Program: The social activities will include a reception and a banquet.
