JMLR Special Topic on Gesture Recognition – Second call for papers – Deadline May 15, 2012

The Journal of Machine Learning Research is preparing a special topic on gesture recognition.
Papers relevant to this topic may be submitted to the journal. Please also send email to the guest Editors with your paper number at gesture@ clopinet . com.

The participants of the Gesture Recognition Challenge are strongly encouraged to submit a paper.

We also invite other contributions relevant to gesture recognition, including:
– Algorithms for gesture and activity recognition, in particular addressing
o Learning from unlabeled or partially labeled data
o Learning from few examples per class, and transfer learning.
o Continuous gesture recognition and segmentation
o Deep learning architectures, including convolutional neural networks
o Gesture recognition in challenging scenes, including cluttered/moving backgrounds or moving cameras, or scenes where multiple persons are present.
o Integrating information from multiple channels (e.g., position/motion of multiple body parts, hand shape, facial expressions).
– Data representations
– Applications pertinent to the workshop topic, such as involving:
o Video surveillance
o Image or video indexing and retrieval
o Recognition of sign languages for the deaf
o Emotion recognition and affective computing
o Computer interfaces
o Virtual reality
o Robotics
o Ambiant intelligence
o Games
– Datasets and benchmarks

The papers of the special topic of JMLR will also be reprinted as a book in the CiML series of Microtome.

Guest Editors: Isabelle Guyon and Vassilis Athitsos
