*** Apologies for cross postings *** CALL FOR PARTICIPATION ACM/SSPNET 2nd INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON FACIAL ANALYSIS AND ANIMATION (FAA) School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, UK. October 21st, 2010 Important Dates: 10th September 2010: Deadline for extended abstract submission 17th September 2010: Notification of acceptance Facial animation is a broad and exciting area of research drawing on multiple disciplines: computer graphics and animation provide the means to render and display a face, computer vision can be used to measure, interpret and decode facial actions, while psychology can help provide the emotive human element of animation. However, creating convincing facial animation is an exceptionally difficult task - each one of us is an expert judge in deciding whether an animation is realistic or not. In today's world, facial animation has more applications than ever before: from video game characters to movie actor doubles, from machine facial displays to psychological research stimuli. Following on from the success of FAA 2009 (http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/faa2009/), we are pleased to announce a call for submissions for FAA 2010, in cooperation with ACM and sponsored by SSPNET. The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry - particularly in VFX and games - interested in all aspects of facial animation and related analysis. Submissions are invited in the following broad topic areas:  Acquisition of Facial Shape, Motion and Texture  Performance Driven Animation and Expression Mapping  Facial animation using Example Based Synthesis and Motion Graph based techniques  Facial Animation Production Pipelines  Visual Speech Synthesis  Animation of Non-Linguistic Behaviors and Vocalisations  Perception of Facial Animation and the "Uncanny Valley"  Facial Rendering (Photorealistic and Non-Photorealistic) Research should be submitted as a 1 page extended abstract using the SIGGRAPH formatting guidelines (see http://www.siggraph.org/publications/instructions). LaTeX and BibTeX class files following the "acmsiggraph" convention may be downloaded from (http://www.siggraph.org/publications/acmsiggraph.zip). An example submission may be found at (http://www.siggraph.org/publications/poster-abstract-example1.pdf). Submissions do not need to be anonymous. Contributions should be sent to Darren Cosker (D.P.Cosker_(at)_cs.bath.ac.uk) by 10th September, 2010. Authors of accepted submissions will be given the option to have their work appear in the ACM Digital Library (http://portal.acm.org/dl.cfm). The program on the day will consist of both oral and poster presentations, including invited keynote talks from leading international experts. Chairs: Darren Cosker (Uni. of Bath), Gregor Hofer (Uni. of Edinburgh), Michael Berger (Uni. of Edinburgh) and Will Smith (Uni. of York). _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(at)_mailman.let.uu.nl http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
