Perception Action and Cognition



Workshop on Psychology of Face and Gesture Recognition
16.09.2008 - 16.09.2008
De Roed Hoed - Amsterdam
Past Events


Where: Amsterdam, The Netherlands


Organizers: Frank Pollick and Aina Puce

A workshop will be held as part of the 8th IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition. The workshop is intended to provide: 1) an overview of the state of the art research into how humans use faces, body postures and motion to recognize human activity and its social content, 2) a review of cutting edge research that uses techniques of brain imaging to reveal the brain states which reflect human recognition of face and gesture.
