Co-located with 10th Tübingen Perception Conference Tübingen, Germany,
25th - 27th July, 2007.
Keynote by Greg Ward

Research in computer graphics and visualization has great potential to
benefit from, and contribute to, research in perception.

Since 2004, APGV has brought together researchers from the fields of
perception, graphics and visualization, to facilitate a wider exchange
of ideas. Our goals are to use insights from perception to advance the
design of methods for visual, auditory and haptic representation, and to
use computer graphics to enable perceptual research that would otherwise
not be possible.

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 or 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
    * computational aesthetics, stylization, and perceptual aspects of
non-photorealistic rendering

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 (http://www.acm.org/tap/).

By co-locating APGV 07 with the tenth annual Tübingen Perception
Conference (http://www.twk.tuebingen.mpg.de/), we aim to further promote
communication with the core perception community, and also bring APGV
back to Europe.

The keynote this year will be given by Greg Ward - he is a pioneer in
High Dynamic Range Imaging which was first employed as part of the
Radiance lighting simulation system that he developed during his
employment at Lawrence Berkely National Laboratory. Greg has published
numerous papers on lighting simulation as well as co-authored a recent
book on High-Dynamic-Range-Imaging.

The beautiful town of Tuebingen is situated in southern Germany within a
short distance from the Alps, Switzerland, Austria and France. Apart
from its historic town quarter with the world-famous Hoelderlin Tower
and picturesque old houses, Tuebingen is renowned for its excellent
research facilities both from the University and the Max Planck
Institutes. Tuebingen is a convenient 20 minute drive away from
international Stuttgart Airport and well-connected by German Rail. It
offers hotels and restaurants in all price categories and represents an
ideal starting point for exploring southern Germany and the neighboring
countries of Switzerland, Austria and France.
