    presentations and will cover a number of broad themes relevant to Visual

    Attention, among them:

    - Foundation: Early vision, Visual streams, Perception and action,
    Log-map analysis
    - Attentional mechanisms: Pop-out theory, Texton theory, Contour
    integration and closure,
    Fuzzy engagement mechanisms
    - Visual search : Attentional control, Selective attention, Spatial
    attention, Detection versus
    - Multiresolution and planning : Complexity of search tasks,
    Hierarchical perceptual loops,
    Multiresolution and associative memory systems, Attention and action
    - Attentional Visual Architectures: Neural models of visual attention,
    Hierarchical and associative
    networks, Attentional pyramidal neural mechanisms
    - Experiences: Eyeputer and scanpath recorders, etc.
