21 Face Recognition, Detection, Tracking, Gesture Recognition, Fingerprints, Biometrics

This chapter contains papers that cover a variety applications to images of people. Face recognition, detection, tracking, expressions, Gesture recognition, Sign Language, fingerprint analysis, and general biometrics. For human motion analysis see the sections under the general surveillance sections ( See also Human Motion Understanding and Analysis. ).
