The IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition
(FG 2021) Doctoral Consortium aims to provide a forum for doctoral students
to discuss their research and career objectives with experienced
researchers of international repute. One of the unique benefits of the
consortium is the networking environment to establish new contacts and
collaborations with other researchers. It will also serve to spread
awareness amongst the students about career options in both academia and

The FG 2021 Doctoral Consortium will be a virtual event, starting with an
informal introduction by senior researchers followed by doctoral students.
Following this, student participants will present their research and
receive feedback from the invited committee. The students will also be
paired with a mentor from the committee on the conference platform and can
interact with their mentor during the conference directly on specific
topics of interest.

Doctoral students working on research problems related to the FG community
are invited to apply for the Doctoral Consortium. Successful applicants are
expected to actively participate in the consortium and the conference.


We encourage submissions from doctoral students working on their
dissertations with partially published results. We encourage diversity and
equality, both in terms of research topics as well as participating
institutions and individuals. We do not expect more than two students to be
invited from each institution to represent a diverse sample. Women are
especially encouraged to apply. It is not necessary to have a paper
appearing in FG 2021 in order to apply to participate.


To apply for the Doctoral Consortium, please submit:
– A CV (max 1 page).
– An extended abstract (max 4 pages) following the FG 2021 paper format. It
should describe the research vision of the applicant, a brief summary of
the work till date, a working plan, and a discussion of future plans and
challenges. The work should still be in progress.
– A supporting letter from the thesis advisor that endorses the student’s
application to this Doctoral Consortium and briefly describes the progress
or status of the student’s thesis work.

All materials should be combined into a single PDF file and submitted
through the FG 2021 submission system.


All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Doctoral Consortium Technical
Program Committee (TPC) members. Paper topics should be related to the
conference topics. Submissions will be evaluated on:
– Quality of the submission.
– Expected benefits for the student’s research.
– Student’s contribution to the diversity of topics, backgrounds,
methodology, etc.


Submission deadline: 31st August, 2021

Notification of acceptance: 7 October, 2021
Doctoral consortium date: TBA, 2021
