    Paper Awards and Journal Special Issue: FG 2021 will include awards for best paper, best student paper, and best poster papers. The best reviewed papers of FG 2021 will be invited for a special issue at the IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior and Identity Science.

    Special Sessions: The three-day main conference will also include two or three Special Sessions to highlight research frontiers in the field of FG and the relevant opportunities in emerging thematic areas.

    Workshops: The first day of the conference will include workshops in focused areas related to the broad field of FG. Considering the recent interest and requirements in the research community, two workshops that we have already identified are related to “DeepFakes” and “Face and Gesture for Public Health”.

    Demo Sessions and Exhibition: Demo sessions will give researchers the opportunity to display, in an interactive setting, new methods and technologies, system prototypes, and experimental features of mature systems. An exhibition session will feature exhibits from industry to inform the research community of commercialization of research results in the field, initiate discussion about the state of the art in real-world applications, and cross-fertilize the knowledge and ideas about the future of research.

    Social Program: The social activities a cultural program showcasing traditional dances of India along will a reception and a banquet.

    IEEE Computer Society Open Conference Statement

    Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are central to the goals of the IEEE Computer Society and all of its conferences. Equity at its heart is about removing barriers, biases, and obstacles that impede equal access and opportunity to succeed. Diversity is fundamentally about valuing human differences and recognizing diverse talents. Inclusion is the active engagement of Diversity and Equity.

    A goal of the IEEE Computer Society is to foster an environment in which all individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination. For this reason, the IEEE Computer Society is firmly committed to team compositions in all sponsored activities, including but not limited to, technical committees, steering committees, conference organizations, standards committees, and ad hoc committees that display Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion.

    IEEE Computer Society meetings, conferences and workshops must provide a welcoming, open and safe environment, that embraces the value of every person, regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, religion, national origin, ancestry, or disability. All individuals are entitled to participate in any IEEE Computer Society activity free of discrimination, including harassment based on any of the above factors.

    IEEE Event Conduct and Safety Statement

    IEEE believes that science, technology, and engineering are fundamental human activities, for which openness, international collaboration, and the free flow of talent and ideas are essential. Its meetings, conferences, and other events seek to enable engaging, thought provoking conversations that support IEEE’s core mission of advancing technology for humanity. Accordingly, IEEE is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment to all participants, including staff and vendors, at IEEE-related events.

    IEEE has no tolerance for discrimination, harassment, or bullying in any form at IEEE-related events. All participants have the right to pursue shared interests without harassment or discrimination in an environment that supports diversity and inclusion. Participants are expected to adhere to these principles and respect the rights of others.
