The International Symposium on Visual Computing

Jeff Mulligan The International Symposium on Visual Computing is a young
interdisciplinary meeting which was started last year by Prof.
George Bebis of the Computer Science department at the University of
Nevada at Reno.  This year we are organizing a "special track" on Visual Computing and Biological Vision.
An overview of our special track is reproduced below, please see the
conference website ( for complete details.

    Visual Computing and Biological Vision

A special track of the International Symposium on Visual Computing 2006

This special track aims to explore the interplay between research in
visual computing and human visual perception. Developments in computer
vision and graphics continue to provide new stimuli and techniques for
probing and analyzing human vision and its neural bases. In turn, studies
of biological vision have revealed processes that are fundamental to
efficient and optimal coding, and human performance remains a benchmark
for assessing machine vision.  Finally, techniques in areas such as
visualization and virtual reality must be informed by the capacities and
limits of human observers. Papers in this track are sought that focus on
these many links between computational and biological information

Topics of interest include all aspects of visual computing applied to (or
inspired by) biological systems, including, but not limited to, the
following areas:
Neuroscience applications of graphics and visualization
 (such as neuro-imaging and psychophysics)
Computational models and empirical constraints in biological vision
Design principles motivated by biological systems
Human factors in visualization and virtual reality

This is an open call-for-papers.  Only original, high-quality papers, in-line
with the ISVC '06 standard guidelines ( will
be considered for publication in this special track.  Prospective authors should
submit electronically their contributions through the website of ISVC '06.
Accepted papers will appear in the symposium proceedings, which will be
published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
