E ective Human-to-Human communication involves both auditory and visual modalities, providing robustness and naturalness in realistic communication situations. Recent e orts at our lab are aimed at providing such multimodal capabilities for humanmachine communication. Most of the visual modalities require a stable image of a speaker's face. In this paper we propose a connectionist face t r acker that manipulates camera orientation and zoom, to kee p a p erson's face l o c ated at all times. The
