Its broad scope includes advances in fundamental computer vision, pattern recognition, computer graphics; machine learning techniques relevant to face, gesture and body motion; new algorithms and applications in behavioral science and affective computing.

FG 2023 will be the 18th in a series that began in 1995 in Zurich, Switzerland.
