*Call for Participation*

*"Topology, geometry, and function"**Workshop / Seminar**on topology and
geometry of information visualisation*

*June 1 and 2, 2018*
*Laboratory for Perceptual and Cognitive Systems, Faculty of
of Latvia, Riga, Latvia *

In our workshop we will discuss the ways geometric, topological, and
functional principles shape human visuo-spatial perception and impact the
perception of information visualisation. We will also explore the impacts
of spatial abilities on learning. Results of several recent studies from
our Lab will be presented in detail.

 In our workshop we will focus and welcome submissions on the following

• features of processing topological and geometric information in respect
to information visualization;

• different forms of geometry and their impact on visuo-spatial processing;

• strength of invariants in geometric and topological structures;

• similarity and structural alignment;

• generation of units in perception - topological or geometric?

• methodological aspects (formal modeling of geometric and topological
systems, morphometry, issues of data collection and analysis etc.).

Plenary keynote speakers include:

Prof. *Kenny Coventry*, FBPS, FRSA, Head of the School of Psychology,
University of East Anglia, UK

Prof. *Cees van Leeuwen*, Laboratory for Perceptual Dynamics, KU Leuven,


University of Latvia Foundation, Accenture


*Application for participation: a CV to be sent to: lpcs at lu.lv
<lpcs at lu.lv> (Extended Deadline: April 8) *

Notifications of acceptance will be send within a week from receiving the

This is the closing event of Lab’s project „Topological Modelling of
Structural Alignment: A Topological and Experimental Analysis of
Information Visualisation”.

The project is supported by University of Latvia Donor SIA "Mikrotīkls".

Foundation of the University of Latvia is administrator of this donation.
