Call for tutorials proposals also available as a PDF document or Word document.

Proposals are solicited for tutorials to be organized in conjunction with the 2015 IEEE Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition, which will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia. The tutorials should complement and enhance the scientific program of FG 2015 by providing authoritative and comprehensive overviews of growing themes that are of sufficient relevance with respect to the state-of-the-art and the conference topics. Accepted tutorials will be held on either May 4 or May 8, 2015, in the same venue as the FG 2015 main conference, Cankarjev dom – Congress Center Ljubljana, Slovenia. The tutorials may span 3 to 6 hours (including breaks). We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the FG community. Interdisciplinary topics that could attract a significant cross-section of the community are highly encouraged. We particularly welcome tutorials which address advances in emerging areas not previously covered in an FG related tutorial.
A tutorial proposal should include:

  • Title
  • Proposer’s contact information and short CV
  • Names of any additional lecturers and short CV
  • Tutorial description and description of relevance to the FG community and an evaluation plan
  • References and experience of the instructors with respect to the proposed tutorial topic
  • Planned length of the tutorial
  • Requirements (e.g., facilities, internet access, etc.),
  • Other useful information (e.g., estimated attendance, slides/notes available, etc.).

The main conference will provide rooms, equipment, and coffee breaks for the tutorials. For any additional questions please contact Quiang Ji and Andrej Košir, FG 2015 Workshops Chairs.
For your reference, the title of the tutorial held in conjunction with the previous FG conference (FG2013) was: Understanding human actions with 2D and 3D sensors.

Review process

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their estimated benefit for the community and their fit within the tutorials program as a whole. Factors to be considered include: relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half or full day format; past experience and qualifications of the instructors. Selection will also be based on the overall distribution of topics, expected attendance, and specialties of the intended audiences.

Submission process

Tutorial proposals must be sent to the workshops and tutorials chairs, Quiang Ji and Andrej Košir, with email subject “FG 2015 Tutorial Proposal: [title of your tutorial]” before December 1, 2014. Decisions will be communicated to the proposers by December 10, 2014.
