Facial skin tone and texture: measurement, perception, and computation
Vision Research seeks contributions for a special issue entitled ‘Facial skin tone and texture: measurement, perception, and computation’<https://www.journals.elsevier.com/vision-research/call-for-papers/facial-skin-tone-and-texture-measurement>
How the visual system utilizes facial appearance cues is important in many areas of science, from evolutionary biology to medical applications. Subtle changes in skin appearance have been shown to be not only a predictor of physical but also mental health. In computer vision, rendering skin appearance to achieve naturalness is still a research challenge.
Skin is one of the most familiar but also most complex non-uniform surfaces humans encounter on a daily basis. Yet the extent to which the human visual system is adapted to the spatio-chromatic properties of skin and whether the familiarity of skin confers any processing advantages remain controversial.
