ICCV 2019, The 1st Workshop on

Sensing, Understanding and Synthesizing Humans

COEX Convention Center, Rm. 307BC, Seoul, Korea (Google Maps)

14:00-18:00, Oct 28th, 2019


Great progress has been achieved in human sensing, understanding and synthesis. We further identify three key issues of the future directions:

  1. We should take a holistic view on the integral pipeline of human sensing/understanding/synthesis, and explore the frontier problems emerged from their intersections.
  2. The lessons, practices and foresights from both academia and industry should be shared and discussed together.
  3. These topics lay the foundation for human-centric AI and will play a greater role in the age of intelligent well-being.
We hope this workshop can foster the inter-disciplinary research in these fields that could profoundly advance our society.

Call for Demos

Micro-video is a great way to communicate science. In this workshop, we look for 1-minute tech demos that illustrate the cutting-edge advances in human sensing, understanding and synthesis from both academia and industry.

Topics: human sensing techniques, 3D human, human/face analysis, action and moments, human/face synthesis, digital humans.

Submission: Please submit your 1-minute demo video to sense.human.workshop@gmail.com.

Deadline: August 16, 2019

Fast-Forward Exhibition: We will select top demos and invite them for a fast-forward exhibition during the workshop.
