Subject: Summer course announcement: Computational Neuroscience in Vision

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Course Announcement, Summer 1992

COMPUTATIONAL NEUROSCIENCE: VISION
July 10 - 24

Organizers: Edward H. Adelson, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
David J. Heeger, NASA Ames Research Center
Ellen C. Hildreth, Wellesley College
J. Anthony Movshon, New York University

Computational approaches to neuroscience have produced important
advances in our understanding of neural processing. Prominent
successes have come in areas where strong inputs from neurobiological,
behavioral and computational approaches can interact. Through a
combination of lectures and hands-on experience with a computer
laboratory, this intensive course will examine several areas,
including the biophysics of computation, visual filters and channels,
motion analysis, binocular stereopsis, color vision, processing of
texture and pattern, effects of attention and memory, and oculomotor
function.
The theme is that an understanding of the computational problems, the con-
straints on solutions to these problems, and the range of possible solutions
can help guide research in neuroscience. Students should have experience in
neurobiological or computational approaches to visual processing. A strong
background in mathematics will be beneficial.
Guest lecturers will include: Rudiger von der Heydt, Stephen Lisberger,
Jitendra Malik, Suzanne McKee, Ken Nakayama, William Newsome, Terrence
Sejnowski, David Sparks and Brian Wandell.
The deadline for application is March 15, 1992. Applications and addi-
tional information may be obtained from:

BRITISH MACHINE VISION CONFERENCE
University of Leeds, 21-24 September 1992

The British Machine Vision Conference is the main UK conference for machine
vision and related topics. The emphasis is on UK research being undertaken
through national or international collaborative projects, providing a forum
for the presentation and discussion of the latest results of investigations.
Papers from other nations, especially those collaborating with UK groups, are
also very welcome.

A printed copy of the Proceedings will be available to delegates at the
conference, and a selection of the best papers will be published separately in
a special issue of Image and Vision Computing Journal.

Contributions are sought on any novel aspect relating to machine vision and
pattern analysis, including:
* image processing and feature extraction * practical applications
* object recognition and scene analysis * model based coding
* reconstruction of 3D shape * architectures
* advanced pattern analysis * active vision
* computational issues in perception * motion analysis
* robotic vision and sensor fusion * neural networks

Full papers not exceeding 10 pages (approx. 5000 words if no figures) should
be submitted for review. Papers will be accepted either for oral presentation
or for presentation as posters. All papers accepted will appear in the
Proceedings. Papers will be reviewed by the BMVA Committee.

Three cash prizes will be given, one for the podium paper and one for the
poster paper judged by the programme committee to make the best scientific
contribution, and one for the paper judged to have the most commercial
potential.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: 1st May 1992
