Three-Dimensional Sensory and Motor Space
EuroConference on Computational Mechanisms for the Generation and Perception of Action in 3D Space
Acquafredda di Maratea (near Naples), Italy, 5-10 April 2003

Chair: Markus Lappe (D, Westf. Wilhelms Universität Münster, D)
Vice-chair: Daniel Wolpert (UK, University College London, UK)

Speakers will include: Aaron Bobick (Atlanta, US); David Burr (Florence U., I); Holk Cruse (Bielefeld U., D); Jacques Duysens (St. Maartens, NL); Luciano Fadiga (Parma U., I); Randy Flanagan (Queens U., CA); Martha Flanders (Minnesota U., US); Maarten Frens (Erasmus MC, NL); Vittorio Gallese (Parma U., I); Martin Giese (MPI Tübingen, D); Werner Graf (CNRS Paris, F); Laurence Harris (York U., CA); K-P. Hoffmann (Bochum U., D); Marco Iacoboni (UCLA, US); Marc Jeannerod (CNRS Bron, F); Markus Lappe (Münster U., D); Concetta Morrone (Milan U., I); Aftab Patla (Waterloo U., CA); Frank Pollick (Glasgow U., UK); Maggie Shiffrar (Rutgers U. US); Niko Troje (Bochum U., D); Lucia Vaina (Boston U., US); Bill Warren (Brown U., US); Daniel Wolpert (UCL, UK).

Scope of the conference: This meeting will focus on the computational mechanisms and strategies that allow us to generate and perceive movement and action in space. This includes the control of body stance, locomotion and goal-directed actions. Both the perception and the execution of these tasks are computationally very difficult, as many parameters in different frames of reference have to be integrated and controlled simultaneously. Over the last few years there have been more and more indications that the perception of motor actions might be supported by mechanisms that are very similar to those in control of these actions. Special emphasis will be placed on the following topics: Links between perception and action, Control of posture and stance, optic flow, Control of locomotion, Perception of biological motion, Control of action sequences, Recognition of action sequences. Poster sessions will be organised.

Deadline for applications: 24 January 2003

Financial support: A number of grants will be available for young researchers (35 or under) who are nationals of a Member State of the European Union or of an Associated State and who are active inside or outside these Member or Associated States at the time of the event. Associated States are: Bulgaria, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. Applications from female researchers are encouraged.
