Understanding intrinsic simplicity and statistical likelihood in visual Gestalts

March 14-16, 2012, University of Leuven, Belgium

The Laboratory of Experimental Psychology is hosting a small-scale workshop on simplicity and likelihood principles in perceptual organization. The workshop aims at understanding how the brain organizes the visual input into a coherent interpretation. Why are certain organizations preferred over others? Is it because those organizations are simpler, or because they are more likely?

The workshop combines tutorial style lectures by our invited speakers (Jacob Feldman, Lars Muckli, Peter van der Helm, & Laurenz Wiskott), with short empirically focused presentations by lab members (Hans Op de Beeck, Wouter Braet, Maarten Demeyer, Lee de-Wit, Jonas Kubilius, Bart Machilsen, Tom Putzeys, Michaël Sassi, Sander van de Cruys, Nathalie van Humbeeck, Cees van Leeuwen, & Johan Wagemans). There will be ample time for open discussion.

Anyone who is interested in participating is welcome, but note that attendance will be limited to 30 places. Registration cost is 50 Euros. More details and practical information about the event can be found here:
