Proposals are solicited for tutorials to be organized in conjunction with the 2020 IEEE Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG2020), which will be held from May 18 to May 22, 2020 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The tutorials should complement and enhance the scientific program of FG2020 by providing authoritative and comprehensive overviews of growing themes that are of sufficient relevance with respect to the state-of-the-art and the conference topics.

Accepted tutorials will be held on either May 18 or May 22, 2020, in the same venue as the FG2020 main conference. The tutorials are half-day events (3 to 4 hours including breaks).

We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the FG community. Interdisciplinary topics that could attract a significant cross-section of the community are highly encouraged. We particularly welcome tutorials which address advances in emerging areas not previously covered in an FG related tutorial.

A tutorial proposal should include:

  • Tutorial title
  • Proposer’s contact information and short CV
  • Names of any additional lecturers and short CV
  • Tutorial description and description of the relevance to the FG community
  • References and experience of the instructors with respect to the proposed tutorial topic
  • Preferred length (half day or full day)
  • List of relevant tutorials recently presented in other conferences
  • Requirements (e.g., facilities, Internet access, etc.)
  • Other useful information (e.g., estimated attendance, slides/notes available, etc.). 

The main conference will provide rooms, equipment, and coffee breaks for the tutorials. For any additional questions please contact FG2020 Workshops Chairs at

Review process

Tutorial proposals will be evaluated on the basis of their estimated benefit for the community and their fit within the tutorials program as a whole. Factors to be considered include: relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; suitability for presentation in a half or full day format; past experience and qualifications of the instructors. Selection will also be based on the overall distribution of topics, expected attendance, and specialties of the intended audiences.
