        Ideal Observers and Efficiency: Commemorating the Fiftieth
        Anniversary of Tanner and Birdsall

Submission Deadline: February 1, 2009

Fifty years ago Tanner and Birdsall published their classic paper 
introducing the concepts of ideal observers and human information 
processing efficiency to the study of psychoacoustics. Since that time, 
the signal-detection-based ideal observer approach has been applied to a 
wide variety of problems in auditory and visual psychophysics, far 
beyond the signal detection theory proper. To commemorate Tanner and 
Birdsall's seminal work, JOSA A invites submissions to a special issue 
focused on the use of ideal observers and the measurement of information 
processing efficiency in vision science. Review articles, tutorials, and 
new and exciting work falling within the ideal observer framework are 
all welcome.

Some possible topics include

    * Pattern/Object detection and recognition
    * Neural/Physiological processes
    * Innovations in ideal observer theory
    * Medical imaging
    * Eye movements
    * Classification image modeling and analysis
    * Black-box models
    * Natural scene statistics
    * Computer vision

Manuscripts must be prepared according to the usual standards for 
submission to /JOSA A/; see the Information for Contributors in any 
printed issue or the OSA Style Guide: 
http://www.opticsinfobase.org/josaa/submit/style/default.cfm.

Manuscripts must also be uploaded through OSA's electronic submission 
system: http://www.opticsinfobase.org/josaa/journal/josaa/author.cfm. 
Please specify that the manuscript is for the Ideal Observers and 
Efficiency feature (choose from the feature issue drop-down menu).
