*** Call for Papers ***
Recent advancements in generative models within the realms of computer 
vision and artificial intelligence have revolutionized the way 
researchers approach data-driven tasks. The advent of sophisticated 
generative models, such as GANs (Generative Adversarial Networks), VAEs 
(Variational Autoencoders), or more recently diffusion models, has 
empowered practitioners to create synthetic data that closely mirrors 
real-world scenarios. These models enable the generation of 
high-fidelity images and sequences, laying the foundation for 
groundbreaking applications in face and gesture analysis. The 
significance of these generative models lies in their ability to produce 
synthetic data that is remarkably realistic, thereby mitigating 
challenges associated with data scarcity and privacy concerns. As a 
result, the utilization of synthetic data has become increasingly 
prevalent in various research domains, offering a versatile and ethical 
alternative for training and testing machine learning algorithms.

This workshop aims to delve into the diverse applications of synthetic 
data in the realm of face and gesture analysis. Participants will 
explore how synthetic datasets have been instrumental in training facial 
recognition systems, enhancing emotion detection models, and refining 
gesture recognition algorithms. The workshop will showcase exemplary use 
cases where the integration of synthetic data has not only overcome data 
limitations but has also fostered the development of more robust and 
accurate models. As researchers increasingly recognize the potential of 
synthetic datasets in shaping the future of computer vision and machine 
learning, there arises a demand for a collaborative platform where ideas 
can be exchanged, methodologies shared, and challenges addressed. This 
workshop aims to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and 
practical implementation, fostering a community of experts and 
enthusiasts dedicated to advancing the frontiers of synthetic data in 
face and gesture analysis.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
+ Novel generative models for face and gesture synthesis
+ Label generation for synthetic data
+ Information leakage in synthetics data
+ Data factories for training biometric (detection, landmarking, 
recognition) models
+ Synthetic data for data augmentation
+ Data synthesis for bias mitigation and fairness
+ Quality assessment for synthetic data
+ Synthetic data for privacy protection
+ Novel applications of synthetic data
+ New synthetic datasets and performance benchmarks
+ Applications of synthetic data, e.g., deepfakes, virtual try-on, face 
and gesture editing
