Welcome to this special issue on human modeling, analysis, and synthesis of the international journal Machine Vision and Applications! The last decade has witnessed an explosion of research on new ways of understanding and representing the subtleties of human modeling, analysis, and synthesis. A series of successful workshops and conference tracks in this area further exemplify the vital role of capturing information about humans using video cameras. It is an exciting and challenging research topic, and researchers in computer vision and many other interdisciplinary areas are making good progress in solving a number of long-standing issues. In pursuit of a better understanding of the problems associated with this theme, this special issue seeks to put together selected papers on aspects of modeling, analysis, and synthesis of a person's appearance, movement, and behavior. The papers appearing in this special issue were carefully reviewed by a panel of experts in the relevant areas.
