APGV 08: FIFTH SYMPOSIUM ON APPLIED PERCEPTION IN GRAPHICS AND
VISUALIZATION

Co-located with ACM Siggraph in Los Angeles, USA
9th - 10th August, 2008

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Research in computer graphics and visualization has great potential to
benefit from, and contribute to, research in perception. Since 2004,
this symposium has brought together researchers from the fields of
perception, graphics, and visualization, to facilitate a wider
exchange of ideas.

Submissions are invited in the broad range of areas at the
intersection of computer graphics, visualization, and perception to
fulfill two goals of this multidisciplinary community.

Goal 1. Use insights from perception to advance the design of methods
for visual, auditory and haptic representation. Specific examples
include, but are not limited to:

* applications of insights from perception to the development of
algorithms for more efficient, effective or realistic modeling,
rendering and/or animation
* applications of perception in the design and evaluation of methods
for more effective representation and communication of data
* computational aesthetics, stylization and perceptual aspects of
non-photorealistic rendering
* perceptual issues arising due to fusion of digital imaging, computer
vision, and computer graphics techniques
* perception-inspired interfaces for immersive activities in virtual
worlds

Goal 2. Advance and facilitate novel basic perception and cognition
research that uses and is relevant to applications in computer
graphics and visualization. Here specific examples include, but are
not limited to:

* perception and visuomotor control in computer games, virtual and
augmented environments
* fundamental contributions in spatial and temporal vision
* integration of empirical perception research with computational
models
* color vision and color appearance modeling
* the influence of attention and eye movements on visual perception
and visual memory
* statistical learning and perception of natural scenes
* perception of shapes, surfaces and materials
* visual illusions and perceptual organization having potential to
enhance image depiction

Proceedings, which will include the poster abstracts, will be
published by ACM SIGGRAPH. Best papers from the symposium will be
invited to be extended for a special issue of the ACM Transactions on
Applied Perception.

By co-locating APGV 08 with the thirty-fifth annual SIGGRAPH
Conference (SIGGRAPH 08), we aim to further promote communication
between the core perception and the core computer graphics
communities, and also bring APGV back to the United States.
