International Workshop on Disguised Faces in the Wild (DFW 2019) at ICCV2019

Call for Papers

Extensive research in the domain of face recognition has resulted in the development of algorithms achieving near cent percent performance on large-scale datasets. It has often been observed that most of these systems are susceptible to physical adversaries, that is, variations brought to the individual prior to the capture of input data. One of the most common, yet challenging and unexplored form of physical adversary is the incorporation of disguise accessories. Disguised face recognition encompasses handling both intentional and unintentional disguises, a research challenge pertinent for users such as the law enforcement agencies. Disguise as a covariate can be used to either obfuscate his/her identity or impersonate someone else’s identity. The problem is further aggravated in unconstrained environments, or “in the wild” scenarios.
The organizers invite researchers to participate in the Disguised Faces in the Wild 2019 competition and submit their research papers in the workshop.

The scope of the workshop is:
- Face recognition with disguise variations
- Methods for impersonating identities using disguise
- Methods for detecting disguise variations
- Face recognition with makeup variations
- Recognizing partially occluded faces
- Matching faces across plastic surgery

Workshop paper submission deadline: July 31st, 2019
Camera ready deadline: August 30th, 2019
