Face and Gesture 2018 (FG 2018)

** Call for Workshops **
We invite workshop proposals for the 2018 IEEE Conference on Automatic 
Face and Gesture Recognition (FG 2018: http://www.fg2018.org/) in Xi’an 
China. Accepted workshops will be held on either May 15 or May 19, 2018, 
in the same venue as the FG 2018 main conference. We solicit workshop 
proposals on any topic of interests to the FG community. Complementary 
to the main venue, we especially encourage workshop proposals relating 
to emerging new fields or new application domains of face and gesture 
analysis and synthesis. 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 submission must all be handled between January 28th, 
2018 (deadline for submission of workshop papers) and March 4th, 2018 
(camera-ready workshop paper due date). Financial support from the main 
conference beyond facilitating the venue is not guaranteed and is 
depending on budget. The deadline for all workshop proposals is October 
2nd, 2017. Decisions will be made by October 9th, 2017.

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 

Workshop proposals must be sent to the workshops and tutorials chairs, 
Vitomir Struc (vitomir.struc at fe.uni-lj.si) and Yingli Tian 
(ytian at ccny.cuny.edu), with email subject “FG 2018 Workshop Proposal:
