Test of Time Award
The Test of Time Award from IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition (FG) recognizes the author or authors of an influential paper published between fifteen and twenty years ago that has significantly impacted research on face and gesture recognition.
The paper entitled “Comprehensive Database for Facial Expression Analysis” (FG2000) with authors Takeo Kanade, Jeffrey F. Cohn, & Yingli Tian received the FG’19 Test of Time Award as the highest Impact Paper from IEEE International Conference on Automatic Face and Gesture Recognition 1999‐2004. The Cohn‐Kanade AU‐Coded Expression Database is the first publicly available database for automatic facial action unit recognition. This database was used as the most comprehensive testbed for comparative studies of facial expression analysis. The database and its extended dataset have more than 4500 citations and downloads which directly benefit the research of computer vision and multimedia communities.
