NETI 2012 (2nd Notice):  There is still time to register, and there 
are still some slots open for posters (see below).

The Center for Perceptual Systems at the University of Texas at 
Austin is hosting the third workshop on "Natural Environments, Tasks 
and Intelligence" (http://www.cps.utexas.edu/neti2012/).

Dates:  April 20-22, 2012

Purpose:  Perceptual and motor systems must reflect the natural tasks 
the organism performs as well as the properties of the natural 
environments in which the organism performs those tasks. Thus, the 
aim of this workshop is to stimulate research in "natural systems 
analysis," which consists of several interrelated components: (i) 
identification and characterization of natural tasks, (ii) 
measurement and analysis of natural scene statistics, (iii) analysis 
of the computational requirements of natural tasks, (iv) rigorous 
experimental study of neural and behavioral performance in natural tasks.
