The tutorial will be virtual and is split into two parts covering a full day. The morning presentations introduce SMPL, discuss issues, offer solutions, and give insights. These presentations are given by the creators of SMPL and its derivatives. We will present the inside scoop with little-known tricks and tips.
After building the fundamental understanding, the afternoon session focuses on using SMPL with presentations by leading researchers both from within the team and outside. This exposes the attendees to state-of-the-art use cases.
There will be ample time to discuss issues with using SMPL and how researchers address these. Finally, we will end with a discussion about future directions, unresolved issues, and how to build a lasting community of users.
