The 28th Symposium of the Center for Visual 
Science will bring computational, 
neurophysiological and psychophysical researchers 
together who study the computational foundations 
of problems in sensory and perceptual processing 
ranging from low-level sensory coding to 
higher-level aspects of perception and action 
such as cue integration, decision-making and 
sensorimotor control.  Much of the research 
discussed at the meeting focuses on the visual 
system; however, included in the symposium will 
be speakers who study other sensory and motor 
systems, and multisensory processing involving 
vision and other modalities. The goal is to 
provide a forum for investigating the common 
foundational computational principles that 
underlay the many seemingly different functions 
of sensory systems (as well as how they differ) 
and to discuss how to link computational theories 
to underlying mechanisms to gain a deeper 
understanding of perceptual behavior. With this 
in mind, we have invited speakers who bring 
together computational and experimental 
approaches - whether that be by developing 
computational theories of human / animal 
performance, by conceptualizing and designing 
experimental studies to test computational 
theories or both.
