  Second Symposium on Applied Perception in Graphics and Visualization

A Satellite Meeting of the European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP) 

                   Sponsored by ACM SIGGRAPH

                        A Coruna, Spain

                      26-28 August 2005



Research in computer graphics and visualization has great potential to benefit from, and contribute to, research in perception.
This symposium continues a successful meeting held in 2004. It seeks to provide a forum for the wider exchange of ideas and information between members of the graphics and visualization communities who are using insights from visual/auditory/haptic perception to advance the design and guide the evaluation of methods for more effective visual/auditory/haptic representation, and members of the vision sciences community who are using computer graphics to facilitate the investigation of fundamental processes of perception.
To facilitate this interaction, and to make the meeting more accessible to participants from outside the USA, the meeting is being held this year as a Satellite Meeting of the European Conference on Visual Perception.
ECVP is being held at the same site immediately prior to this meeting.

Submissions are invited in the broad range of areas at the intersection of computer graphics, visualization and perception. Specific examples include, but are not limited to:

applications of insights from perception to the development of algorithms for more efficient/effective/realistic modeling, rendering and/or animation;

applications of perception in the design and evaluation of methods for more effective representation and communication of data;

the study of perception and perceptual issues in virtual environments;

Submissions are particularly welcome in all areas of basic perception research that have applications in computer graphics and visualization;

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.

Submission deadlines:
15 April 2005
full papers (up to 8 pages)

27 May 2005
posters (up to 1 page abstract)
