Call for Papers

Human Vision and Electronic Imaging 2018
Hyatt Regency Hotel--San Francisco Airport, Burlingame, CA USA
January 28 - February 1, 2018

The conference on Human Vision and Electronic Imaging explores the
role of human perception and cognition in the design, analysis, and
use of electronic media systems. Over the years, it has brought
together researchers, technologists, and artists, from all over the
world, for a rich and lively exchange of ideas. We believe that
understanding the human observer is fundamental to the advancement of
electronic media systems, and that advances in these systems and
applications drive new research into the perception and cognition of
the human observer. Every year, we introduce new topics through our
Special Sessions, centered on areas driving innovation at the
intersection of perception and emerging media technologies.

Conference Topics:

o Fundamental and applied research in human perception and cognition,
including psychophysical, neurophysiological, and computational
approaches to human spatial, temporal, color, and stereo perception

o Visual, auditory, haptic, olfactory and taste perception, and
cross-sensory interactions

o Perceptually-based algorithms, metrics and methods for image and
video quality and compression; image and video analysis and
understanding; texture, lighting, and material appearance; and

o Visual cognition, including visual attention and saliency, visual
search, pattern recognition, perceptual organization and semantics

o Higher-level issues in image quality, include quality of experience,
aesthetics, emotion, and context

o Perceptual and cognitive opportunities for emerging technologies,
including social networks, big data visualization, data analytics,
medical imaging, mobile computing, and digital humanities

o Perception, art, and aesthetics, including fine arts and design,
integrating artistic and scientific insights on perceptual phenomena

All accepted papers are published in the proceedings of Electronic
