Human face image analysis describes several face perceptions tasks, including face detection, race and age classification, face recognition, gender recognition, etc. These attributes have been given attention in recent days in Computer Vision (CV) research community due to large scale applications. Face image analysis plays an important role in real world applications, including augmentation, biometrics, animations, surveillance, human computer interaction and several other applications. Despite these research developments, human face analysis is still difficult and challenging task due to reasons such as poor imagery conditions, complicated facial expressions, complex background etc. Human face image analysis has more complication in the un-constrained and real-world conditions.


With the emergence of deep learning methods face image analysis is excellently addressed by computer vision researchers. This special issue looks forward to novel techniques using deep learning and machine learning, covering some new exiting research findings. We welcome high quality research and review articles to our special issue.
