Dear all, Please forward the call to anyone that might be interested. thank you. Gregor Hofer ------------------------------------------------------------------- BMVA British Machine Vision Association and Society for Pattern Recognition Call for Participation Facial Analysis and Animation http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/faa/ http://www.bmva.org/ REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN, SEE WEBSITE FOR DETAILS. One Day BMVA symposium at the School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, UK on June 10th, 2009 Chairs: Darren Cosker (Uni. of Bath), Gregor Hofer (Uni. of Edinburgh), Michael Berger (Uni of Edinburgh), Nataliya Nadtoka (Uni. of Surrey) ********************** Confirmed Invited Speakers *********************** Tim Weyrich Dept. of Computer Science, UCL Andrew Lindsay Director of Animation, Lionhead Studios Steven Caulkin Head of Research, ImageMetrics **************************** Industry Demo ********************************* 4D capture technology by Dimensional Imaging ******************************************************************************** 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; speech science is used to determine how the face should move during speech; while psychology can help provide the emotive human element of animation. However, creating convincing facial animation is an exceptionally difficult task due to our innate sensitivity to facial form and motion, 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. The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in all aspects of facial animation and related analysis. Submissions are invited in the following topic areas but are not limited to: - Image-based Acquisition of Facial Shape, Motion and Texture - Facial Animation Using Example-Based Synthesis and Motion-Graph Based Techniques - Performance-Driven Animation and Expression Mapping - Visual Speech Synthesis - Animation of Non-Linguistic Behaviors and Vocalisations - Perception of Facial Animation and the "Uncanny Valley" - Photo and Non-Photorealistic Facial Rendering Please submit an extended abstract of about one A4-sized page length (no longer than 2 pages; PDF preferred). Send contributions by email attachment (1Mb max please) to Darren Cosker (D.P.Cosker_(at)_cs.bath.ac.uk) by Thursday April 30th, 2009.
