Special Session: Challenges in Modeling and Representation of Gestures in Human Interactions
IEEE FG2020 @ Buenos Aires, Argentina

FG 2020 Call for Papers!!

We cordially invite you to submit your work at our special session, "Challenges in Modeling and Representation of Gestures in Human Interactions<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__fg2020.org_challenges-2Din-2Dmodeling-2Dand-2Drepresentation-2Dof-2Dgestures-2Din-2Dhuman-2Dinteractions_&d=DwMF-g&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=QzO9Gvx--F8bbpK4WUTVIhyPaN5YzAi1exE8T4txWmU&s=Mt0h_2oW_s9MRx3LgrpRZdqZxvBu3wkoee1_4cBq63g&e=>" to be held in conjunction with IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG 2020 - May 18-22, 2020). The accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the main conference.

This special session will focus on fundamental challenges related to how to model and represent gestures. Understanding the pragmatical, semantical and morphological attributes of gestures could lead to novel approaches to tackle standard gesture recognition problems. Some approaches that tackle these problems include paradigms such as zero-shot and representation learning to recognize the semantic or high-level characteristics of gestures.

The challenges to be tackled in this special session include, but are not limited to:

  *   Approaches to represent the gestures’ morphology (shape, movement)
  *   Machine learning techniques to learn from a few gestures (zero-shot or few-shot learning)
  *   Cognitive aspects of gestures (e.g. gestures as enablers of understanding and learning)
  *   Affective properties of gestures (can hand gestures convey emotions in a similar way to action units?)
  *   Approaches to represent the gestures’ semantics (the meaning of the gesture)
  *   Representing gesture pragmatics (the context in which they were generated)

Important dates

  *   Paper submission deadline: 10 January 2020.
  *   Acceptance notification: 24 January 2020.
  *   Camera-ready paper deadline: 28 February 2020.
