IEEE FG 2018 Workshop on Dense 3D Reconstruction of 2D Face Images in the Wild

3D face reconstruction from 2D images has become a very active topic in computer vision and computer graphics. The workshop aims to bring together the community to explore and address challenges in 3D face reconstruction of 2D in-the-wild images. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • 3D face dataset and models
  • 3D face reconstruction from single images and videos
  • 3D-based face analysis and biometrics
  • Special session on 3D face reconstruction challenge (competition)
  • Other applications of 3D face models

The workshop is co-located with the 13th IEEE Conference on Automatic Face & Gesture Recognition (FG2018), 15-19 May, 2018, Xian,China.

Special Session: Competition
As a special session of the workshop, we will release a new benchmark dataset consisting of a number of identities. For each identity there are a number of 2D in-the-wild face images and a high-resolution 3D face scan ground-truth. Alongside the dataset we supply a standard protocol to allow independent comparison among different algorithms.
The submission deadline for all papers is 31 January 2018.
