INSTRUCTIONS OF PAPER SUBMISSION FOR REVIEW
Submissions to FG 2024 should have no substantial overlap with any other paper already submitted or published, or to be submitted during the FG 2024 review period. All persons who have made any substantial contribution to the work should be listed as authors, and all listed authors should have made some substantial contribution to the work. All authors should be aware that the paper is submitted to FG 2024.
- Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Face recognition, analysis and synthesis,
- Gesture recognition, analysis and synthesis,
- Body motion analysis and synthesis,
- Action recognition,
- Psychological and behavioral analysis,
- Technologies and applications
The submissions are open and you can submit your paper through the CMT System:
FG 2024 will use a two-round reviewing procedure. New papers can be submitted in either the first or the second round. The primary benefit of submitting in Round 1 is that submissions can be invited for resubmission to Round 2, enabling authors to address reviewer concerns and significantly improve their work.
- Round 1
- Paper submission (extended to): 2 October 2023, 11:59 PST (firm)
- Notifications to authors: 13 December 2023
- Round 2
- Paper submission: 22 January 2024 (11:59pm Pacific)
- Notifications to authors: 28 February 2024
Paper format and submission
Format. FG 2024 will consider two different paper types, i.e., Short and Long Papers. Authors should carefully consider the category before submitting a paper.
- Short paper: 4 pages + 1 page for references
- Long paper: 8 pages (+ any number of references)
The main difference between the two is in the size of contributions and not in their importance or technical quality. In other words, a long paper is expected to have a greater contribution than a short paper. More specifically:
Long papers (8 pages excluding references) should present original reports of substantive new research techniques, findings, and applications. They should place the work within the field and clearly indicate innovative aspects. Research procedures and technical methods should be presented in sufficient detail to ensure scrutiny and reproducibility. Results should be clearly communicated and implications of the contributions/findings for FG and beyond should be explicitly discussed.
Short papers (4 pages + 1 page for references) should present original and highly promising research or applications. Merit will be assessed in terms of originality, importance, and technical quality more so than scope and maturity of the work.
Please note that both long and short papers will undergo the same review process. Rejected long papers will NOT be considered for acceptance as short papers, except for rare cases when reviewers unanimously make this recommendation. Both long and short papers can be accepted for oral or poster presentation.
The reviewing process for FG 2024 will be “double blind” and so the submitted version of the paper should be appropriately anonymized not to reveal the authors or authors’ institutions. Authors will have the opportunity to address issues raised by the reviewers during a rebuttal period before the final decision is made. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the technical Program Committee, and by a handling Area Chair, and the decisions will be given by the Program Chairs based on comments of the Program Committee members, Area Chairs, and the author rebuttal (stage 1).
Submissions have to be in pdf format and are limited to a 10MB file size for both categories. Supplementary material (images, video, etc.) may optionally be submitted with papers, but be sure to maintain anonymity, including the file properties or other hidden text. The entire submission (paper + supplemental material) has a file size limit of 100MB. The supplemental materials will not be part of the conference proceedings, so they are only there to aid the reviewing process. Reviewers are not required to view the supplemental material (though most reviewers are likely to do so), so any information critical to understanding the work should be in the main paper. All supplementary material must be self-contained and zipped into a single file. Note that reviewers will be encouraged to look at it, but are not obligated to do so.
FG 2024 will be using IEEE PDF eXpress for enforcing the requirements for papers to appear in IEEE Xplore. The final versions of all papers accepted for publication must adhere to IEEE Xplore PDF specifications.
Paper templates are available here:
- Prepare your manuscripts as per the IEEE specification using the following templates for both Long Paper and Short Paper: Latex template or Word template
- Carefully proofread your submission
- Submit to the FG 2024 CMT system: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/FG2024.
NOTE: List all authors during initial submission. Modifying the author list after the review process is not allowed.
Papers presented at FG 2024 will be sent for inclusion into the IEEE Xplore digital library, including workshop papers. If a paper is accepted, it is assumed that an author will register and attend the conference to present the paper. Papers that are not presented will not be published in IEEE Xplore.
Awards and TBIOM Special Issue
Several awards will be given out to the best papers from FG 2024, including (1) the best paper award, (2) the best student paper award, and (3) the test-of-time awards. The awards will consist of a commemorative plaque as well as award money.
A selection of best reviewed papers from FG 2024 will be invited to contribute to a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Biometrics, Behavior and Identity Science (IEEE TBIOM).
FG 2024 does not consider a paper on arXiv.org as a dual submission.
Authors should remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper. There should also be no acknowledgments. Authors can leave citations to their previous work unanonymized so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account. However, they should cite their own work in the third person (e.g., “ found that…”)
