NeuroVision: What can computer vision learn from visual neuroscience? Call for Papers

NeuroVision: What can computer vision learn from visual neuroscience?
A CVPR 2022 Workshop
Date: June 19, 2022

We are delighted to announce the NeuroVision workshop hosted in
conjunction with CVPR 2022 on June 19, 2022. This workshop seeks to
understand the contexts in which the brainís visual system can
inform and improve current AI systems, and to explore principles of
the brain that can be extracted and incorporated into AI and ML.

The workshop is a full-day event featuring invited speakers, panel
discussions, and poster presentations/ lighting talks, with the
objective of fostering discussions that are relevant to larger
scientific communities beyond computer vision, including neuroscience,
psychology, human computer interaction, augmented reality, and visual
prosthetics. For information about whether the workshop will be
in-person, virtual, or hybrid please visit the CVPR 2022 website.

We invite submissions of extended abstracts (up to four pages
including references) describing work related to topics in biological
vision that can potentially benefit computer vision systems.

The following is a non exhaustive list of relevant topics:

    Active visionís role in visual search, scene understanding, social interactions, etc.
    Learning in the visual system. Learning in biology is continual, few-shot, and adversarially robust.
    The roles of recurrent and top-down connections in the visual cortex.
    Spike based spatiotemporal processing and its implications for neuromorphic vision.
    Motion perception in dynamic environments.
    Neural coding schemes in the visual system (e.g., sparse coding, predictive coding, and temporal coding.)
    The roles of attention mechanisms in biological vision.

Accepted submissions will be presented as posters/ lightning talks at
the workshop, but will not be included in the Proceedings of CVPR
2022. After the workshop, we will be inviting authors to submit papers
for a special issue on NeuroVision in the journal Biological
