Gestures are a natural means of communication between humans,
and also a natural modality for human-computer interaction. Auto-
matic recognition of gestures using computer vision is an important
task in many real-world applications, such as sign language recog-
nition, computer games control, virtual reality, intelligent homes,
and assistive environments. In order for a gesture recognition sys-
tem to be robust and deployable in non-laboratory settings, the sys-
tem needs to be able to operate in complex scenes, with compli-
cated backgrounds and multiple moving and skin-colored objects.
