As part of the 5th International Conference on Computer Vision  
Systems (ICVS2007) we ask for contributions for the workshop

 From Computational Cognitive Neuroscience to Computer Vision - CCNCV  


Description of the workshop
This workshop aims to foster the transfer of knowledge from the area  
of Computational Cognitive Neuroscience to Computer Vision. The  
seemingly simplicity of visual perception has periodically attracted  
machine vision scientists to build biologically inspired algorithms.  
Although such biologically motivated algorithms have not  
revolutionized Computer Vision, we believe that several reasons exist  
that motivate an ongoing exchange. In the recent years there has been  
much progress in the understanding of brain processes such as visual  
attention, object recognition, learning of complex feature detectors,  
decision making and high level cognitive control, to name a few. This  
work is yet often not suitable for real world applications, but it  
might lead to new developments, and in the long run, to better  
algorithms in machine vision.

General topics
We invite contributions from the area of Computational Cognitive  
Neuroscience that relate to Computer Vision. The contribution should  
emphasize those properties of neural models that potentially lead to  
applications in Computer Vision. We do not expect that these  
applications already exist.

Submissions (format, styles, etc.)
Abstracts of max 1 page (preferably PDF) should be submitted to  
fhamker at uni-muenster.de. The work should be novel but it can be  
already published. The primary criterion of acceptance is the  
relevance for the workshop.
