[Infovis] APGV 07 - Early registration deadline ends

Tue Jul 3 17:22:22 CEST 2007


Co-located with 10th Tübingen Perception Conference Tübingen, Germany,
25th - 27th July, 2007.

Keynote by Greg Ward on "Dynamic Range and Visual Perception"

Invited talks by 
 - Oliver Bimber (University of Weimar)
 - Volker Blanz (University of Siegen)
 - Philip Dutré (KU Leuven)
 - Rafal Mantiuk (MPI for Computer Science, Saarbruecken)


Research in computer graphics and visualization has great potential to
benefit from, and contribute to, research in perception.

Since 2004, APGV has brought together researchers from the fields of
perception, graphics and visualization, to facilitate a wider exchange
of ideas. Our goals are to use insights from perception to advance the
design of methods for visual, auditory and haptic representation, and to
use computer graphics to enable perceptual research that would otherwise
not be possible.

By co-locating APGV 07 with the tenth annual Tübingen Perception
Conference (http://www.twk.tuebingen.mpg.de/), we aim to further promote
communication with the core perception community, and also bring APGV
back to Europe.

The keynote this year will be given by Greg Ward - he is a pioneer in
High Dynamic Range Imaging which was first employed as part of the
Radiance lighting simulation system that he developed during his
employment at Lawrence Berkely National Laboratory. Greg has published
numerous papers on lighting simulation as well as co-authored a recent
book on High-Dynamic-Range-Imaging.

Additionally, we will offer four invited talks by Oliver Bimber, Volker 
Blanz, Philip Dutré, and Rafal Mantiuk all of which have had an interest
and have worked on bridging perception and computer graphics. 

Early Registration: Wednesday, July 4, 2007

Symposium: Wednesday, July 25, 2007 - Friday, July 27, 2007

The beautiful town of Tuebingen is situated in southern Germany within a
short distance from the Alps, Switzerland, Austria and France. Apart
from its historic town quarter with the world-famous Hoelderlin Tower
and picturesque old houses, Tuebingen is renowned for its excellent
research facilities both from the University and the Max Planck
Institutes. Tuebingen is a convenient 20 minute drive away from
international Stuttgart Airport and well-connected by German Rail. It
offers hotels and restaurants in all price categories and represents an
ideal starting point for exploring southern Germany and the neighboring
countries of Switzerland, Austria and France.
