Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition is the premier international forum for research in image- and video-based biometric recognition, and hand gesture and body movement analysis. The program will be single track with posters. The conference series is arranged by the IEEE Computer Society TC PAMI and FG2006 will be hosted by the British Machine Vision Association in conjunction with the University of Southampton UK. FG 2006 will be held in Southampton which is in central south UK near Heathrow and many top tourist sites. The general conference topics will include:

Face Recognition and Analysis

  • tracking/detection
  • recognition
  • reconstruction
  • expression analysis
  • 3D analysis
  • lip dynamics analysis

Gesture Recognition and Analysis
