CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

ACM/SSPNET 2nd INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON FACIAL ANALYSIS AND  
ANIMATION (FAA)

School of Informatics, University of Edinburgh, UK. October 21st, 2010

** Registration is now open at http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/faa/ **

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.

The aim of FAA 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.
