Abstract (1000-2000 words) extended due date: August 12, 2004

The goal of this conference is to explore the role of human vision,
perception, and cognition in the design, analysis, and use of
computer-based image and data systems. Over the years, it has brought
together researchers from a wide variety of disciplines, from all over
the world, for a rich and lively exchange of ideas. This dialogue is
based on the growing understanding that the human observer is a
fundamental key to the advancement of image systems, and that advances
in these systems and applications stimulate new research into the
vision, perception, and cognition of the human observer. Papers are
welcome on basic and applied research in:

1) Human perception and cognition
- Models and experimental research
- Psychophysical, neurophysiological, and computational approaches
- Fundamental contributions in spatial, temporal, and color vision
- Fundamental contributions in auditory, haptic, and chemical senses
- Multimodal perception (e.g., spatial/auditory interactions)
- Attention, memory, and learning
- Pattern recognition, visual organization, object perception
2) Color perception and its applications
- Computational and perceptual models of color vision
- Spatial/temporal/color interactions
- Perceptual approaches to device-independent color
- Effective use of color
3) Psychophysical evaluation of image and multimedia quality
- Perceptual and cognitive evaluation of image and video quality
- Perceptual metrics for compression and rendering
- Audio-visual interactions
4) Human vision-based algorithms for:
- Still image and video compression
- Image enhancement and restoration
- Image halftoning and rendering
- Computer graphics and animation
5) Image analysis and perception
- Image semantics, segmentation, and representation
- Perception of shape, texture, and color features
- Perceptual approaches to multimedia retrieval for digital libraries
- Perceptual image and video similarity metrics
- Visually-intuitive navigation through large databases
- Human vision-based approaches to face, gesture, and gait recognition
6) Perceptual issues in visualization and virtual reality
- Interactive exploration of data
- Visual cues for data mining
- Perceptual scaling and visual organization
- Incorporating intelligence into interactive systems
7) Art, aesthetics, and emotion in electronic imaging systems
- Exploiting perception in art
- Emotion and aesthetics in human-computer interfaces
8) Perceptual approaches in life sciences and medical imaging
- Perceptual features for data representation and analysis
- Image rendering and visualization
- Diagnostically-lossless medical image compression
9) Biological vision and comparative physiology
10) Visual prosthesis technology
