We invite proposals for the 2019 Faces and Gestures Competition track in
Lille, France. We solicit competition proposals on any topic of interests
to the FG community. We especially encourage competition proposals from
emerging new fields or new application domains related to FG.
Interdisciplinary topics that could attract a significant cross-section of
the community are highly valued. There will be two kinds of competitions:

   1. Standard data science driven competitions, where participants will
   compete to obtain the best score on a FG problem of interest to the FG
   community based on a problem and data defined and released by the
   organizers of the competition.
   2. Live competitions, which will be held in a science-fair manner at FG.
   Participants will present live demos at FG which apply methodology in an
   application domain defined by the organizers of the Live competition.

Accepted competitions will run as a FG 2019 competition workshop, where
competition results can be discussed and presented. Organizers will propose
a tentative schedule for the presentation of the competition. The main
conference will provide coffee breaks and, if necessary, poster facilities.
For any additional questions please contact the competition chairs.

Competition organizers can additionally open a call for papers for
contributions relevant to the field of the organized competition. Papers
from top ranked participants and papers contributing to the topics of the
competition can be then considered to be included in FG 2019 workshop

Additional comments to competition proposes

In case your proposal contains a “regular data science” track and a “Live”
track, please submit both available templates for revision. It may happen
that only one of them is accepted. Competition organizers should propose a
timeline for running the competition to ensure participants to have enough
time to contribute with a high quality solution. Organizers with a
competition proposal that requires help or suggestions regarding the
competition platform to run the competition can contact the competition
chairs for advice.
