Title: Semantic Image Synthesis with Image Conditional GANs

Ming-Yu Liu is a distinguished research scientist at NVIDIA Research. Before joining NVIDIA in 2016, he was a principal research scientist at Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL). He earned his Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland College Park in 2012 under the supervision of Prof. Rama Chellappa. He received the R&D 100 Award by R&D Magazine for his robotic bin picking system in 2014. His semantic image synthesis paper and scene understanding paper are in the best paper finalist in the 2019 CVPR and 2015 RSS conferences, respectively. In SIGGRAPH 2019, he won the Best in Show Award and Audience Choice Award in the Real-Time Live show for his image synthesis work. His research focus is on generative image modeling. His goal is to enable machines human-like imagination capability.

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 and spoofing variations
- Methods for impersonating identities using disguise
- Methods for detecting disguise and spoofing variations
- Face recognition with makeup variations
- Recognizing partially occluded faces
- Matching faces across plastic surgery
