IJCB 2011 - Tutorials Program

The Organizing Committee of IJCB 11 is pleased to announce a Tutorials Program consisting of four important, practical and valuable tutorials.

The Colorado State University baseline algorithms for face recognition have become widely used in the face recognition research community, and become something of a de facto standard baseline for comparison. The exploitation of 3D shape in the process of face recognition has long been an active research area, and is currently enjoying a new wave of popularity. The security and privacy aspects of biometric identification are a criticial aspect of any application, and yet the techniques available in this area are not widely appreciated. The use of sparse representation techniques has recently become a major hot topic in face recognition and other biometrics. We are pleased to offer a tutorial on each of these topics, with each tutorial offered by leading experts in the area.

The Tutorials Program will take place on Monday, October 10, the day before the main conference. Each tutorial will be scheduled for either a morning time slot, 8:30 am - 12:00, or an afternoon time slot, 1:30 - 5:00. The time slots and room assignments will be announced here as soon as they are set.

You must be registered for IJCB 11 in order to attend any of the tutorial sessions. Registered IJCB 11 conference attendees may attend the tutorial(s) of their choice on a space-available basis.
