Facial animation is a broad and exciting area of research drawing on
multiple disciplines: computer graphics and animation provide the  means
to render and display a face, computer vision can be used to  measure,
interpret and decode facial actions, while psychology can  help provide
the emotive human element of animation. However, creating  convincing
facial animation is an exceptionally difficult task – each  one of us is
an expert judge in deciding whether an animation is  realistic or not.
In today’s world, facial animation has more  applications than ever
before: from video game characters to movie  actor doubles, from machine
facial displays to psychological research  stimuli.

Following on from the success of FAA 2009
(http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/faa2009/ ), and FAA 2010
(http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/faa/), we are pleased to  announce a call for
submissions for FAA 2012, in cooperation with ACM.  The aim of this
meeting is to bring together researchers and  practitioners from both
academia and industry – particularly in VFX  and games – interested in
all aspects of facial animation and related  analysis. Submissions are
invited in the following broad topic areas:

•       Acquisition of Facial Shape, Motion and Texture
•       Performance Driven Animation and Expression Mapping
•       Facial animation using Example Based Synthesis and Motion  Graph based techniques
•       Facial Animation Production Pipelines
•       Visual Speech Synthesis
•       Animation of Non-Linguistic Behaviors and Vocalisations
•       Perception of Facial Animation and the “Uncanny Valley”
•       Facial Rendering (Photorealistic and Non-Photorealistic)
•       Virtual Characters for Telepresence / Embodied Virtual Agents
•       Facial Model Based Coding and Compression
•       Facial Analysis and Animation for Mobile Applications

We hope to see you in Vienna!
