The Spanish Association for Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (AERFAI) and the Mathematics and Computer Science Department of UIB are organising the sixth international Conference on Articulated Motion and Deformable Objects (AMDO 2012) that will take place in Puerto de Andratx, Mallorca. This conference is the natural evolution of AMDO's previous workshops. The new goal of this conference is to promote interaction and collaboration among researchers working directly in the areas covered by the main tracks. The new perceptual user interfaces and the emerging technologies increase the relationship between areas involved with human-computer interaction. The perspective of the AMDO 2012 conference will be to strengthen the relationship between the many areas that have as key point the study of the human body using computer technologies as the main tool.

It is a great opportunity to encourage links between research in the areas of computer vision, computer graphics, advanced multimedia applications and multimodal interfaces that share common problems and frequently use similar techniques or tools. In this particular edition the related topics are divided in several parallel tracks, including the topics above proposed.

AMDO 2012 will consist in three days of lecture sessions, both regular and invited presentations, a poster session and international tutorials. The conference fee (aprox. 400 EUR) includes a social program. Students and IAPR members can register at a reduced fee.

INVITED SPEAKERS:

Prof. Thomas B. Moeslund (University of Aalborg, Denmark) Talk: Analyzing people in thermal imagery.
Prof. Sergio Escalera. (University of Barcelona, Spain) Talk: Human Behavior Analysis using Depth Maps
Prof. Xianghua Xie. (Swansea University, UK) Talk: Deformable Model in Segmentation and Tracking


TOPICS INCLUDE (but not restricted to):

Track 1: Advanced Computer Graphics (Human Modelling & Animation)
Track 2: Human Motion (Analysis, Tracking, 3D Reconstruction & Recognition)
Track 3: Multimodal User Interaction (VR & AR, Speech, Biometrics)
Track 4: Affective Interfaces (recognition and interpretation of emotions, ECAs - Embodied Conversational Agents in HCI)

PAPER SUBMISSION AND REVIEW PROCESS

Papers should describe original and unpublished work about the above or closely related topics. Please submit your paper electronically at our website (see URL above) using the software provided. All submissions should be in Adobe Acrobat (pdf). The AMDO2012 secretariat must receive your paper before March 25, 2012, 17:00 GMT (London time). Up to ten pages will be considered. All papers submitted will be subjected to a blind review process by at least three members of the program committee. The initial paper must not provide names and affiliation, and should include a title, a 150-word abstract, keywords and paper manuscript. Accepted papers will appear in the LNCS Springer-Verlag international proceedings that will be published and distributed to all participants at the workshop. For more details and news, visit our web page. N.B. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and to present the communication at the conference, if accepted.
