Welcome to the Facial Image Processing and Analysis Group
The FIPA’s objective is to conduct research on automatic processing of facial images in order to build systems that can read the faces as humans do. The following research topics are covered by the group:
The FIPA is directed by Dr.-Ing. Ekenel, who has several years of expertise on face analysis with the focus face recognition. He has received the EBF European Biometric Research Award in 2008 and, with his team, the Best Demo Award at the IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition in 2008.
The FIPA is part of the Computer Vision for Human-Computer Interaction Lab in the Institute for Anthropomatics, at the Computer Science Department of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The group is funded by the “Concept for the Future” of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology within the framework of the German Excellence Initiative.
This year, we will organize the Second International Workshop on Benchmarking Facial Image Analysis Technologies (BeFIT 2012) in conjunction with ECCV 2012.BeFIT Workshop 2012 website
Since April the 19th the FIPA group has moved to its new office in building 07.08, Vincenz-Priessnitz-Str. 3. We are located on the ground floor (EG) (have a look at OpenStreetMap or the interactive campus plan).
