Announcement for a Workshop on " Visual Categorisation and Image Management

The objective of the workshop is to bring together Information Retrieval
researchers, Neuroscientists, Visual Scientists and Cognitive Psychologists
to present and discuss recent findings on image categorisation in artificial
and natural systems. This will give the opportunity to scientists who seldom
meet at conferences to share methods of data analysis (such as Cluster
Analysis, Multidimensional Scaling, and Consensus Analysis) and theoretical
approaches (such as Top-Down and Bottom-Up) to the image categorisation

The workshop will be held at the University of Sunderland, St. Peter¹s
Campus, on the 28th June 2006. It will comprise invited lectures, oral
presentations and a plenary discussion.
The workshop is now open for registration.  Participants wishing to give an
oral presentation of 15 ­ 20 minutes should submit abstracts of 500 words
maximum (references excluded) by the 15th April 2006.  Notification of
acceptance will be communicated by the 21st May 2006.  Abstracts submitted
by doctoral students or researchers at early stages in their careers will be
particularly welcome.
Abstracts should submitted electronically at : vcims at sunderland.ac.uk
While there will be no registration fee for the workshop, participants
registering will have to cover their own travel and hotel expenses.
Information and registration forms are available on the conference website
