  • 28 May 2010 – Final Papers Due
  • 28 May 2010 – Poster Submission Deadline

The Symposium for Applied Perception in Graphics and Visualization APGV unites researchers in the fields of perception, graphics, and visualization. These fields can benefit from the exchange of ideas — in particular research in computer graphics and visualization can benefit from and contribute to research in perception.

Our seventh annual event provides an intimate, immersive forum for exchanging ideas about areas of overlapping interests. We invite submissions of original work in the areas described above that  broadly meet two goals of our community:

Goal 1. Use insights from perception to advance the design of methods for visual, auditory and multimodal representation. Examples would include:

  • applications of insights from perception to the development of algorithms for more efficient, effective, or realistic modeling, rendering, and animation
  • applications of perception in the design and evaluation of methods for more effective representation, visualization and communication of data
  • computational aesthetics, stylization, and perceptual aspects of non-photorealistic rendering and visualization
  • perceptual issues arising due to fusion of digital imaging, computer vision, and computer graphics techniques
  • perception-inspired interfaces for immersive activities in virtual worlds as well as for interactive/3D TV and cinema

Goal 2. Advance and facilitate novel basic perception and cognition research that uses and is relevant to applications in computer graphics and visualization. Examples would include:

  • perception and visuomotor control in computer games, virtual and augmented environments
  • fundamental contributions in spatial and temporal vision
  • integration of empirical perception research with computational models
  • color vision and color appearance modeling
  • the influence of attention and eye movements on visual perception and visual memory
  • statistical learning and perception of natural scenes
  • perception of shapes, surfaces and materials
  • visual illusions and perceptual organization having potential to enhance image depiction

By co-locating APGV 2010 with the thirty-seventh annual SIGGRAPH Conference (SIGGRAPH 2010), we aim to further promote communication between the core perception and the core computer graphics communities, and also bring APGV back to the United States.


Research can be submitted as a long paper (up to 8 pages and a 20 minute talk), a short paper (up to 4 pages + 15 min talk), or as a poster  presentation (1 page abstract). Papers that are not accepted will automatically be considered for the poster session. Authors of posters accepted by this route will of course have the option to decline the  opportunity to present a poster. Please check the formatting guidelines before submitting your work on . Submissions do not need to be anonymous.

All papers will be carefully reviewed by our International Program committee. Papers will be evaluated as submitted, given the limited time between submission and final version. Under a new agreement  with the ACM Transactions on Applied Perception (TAP) and the ACM Publications Board, the strongest accepted papers will be accepted for “presentation” at APGV and accepted (with revisions) to ACM TAP. These papers will form the ACM TAP “APGV 2010 special issue,” and will be given the designation “presented at APGV” as part of their TAP citation. For those papers so selected, we guarantee continuity of reviewers. Should a paper so selected not be adequately revised to the satisfaction of the editors for its final acceptance into TAP, it will revert to the APGV proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. Authors of such special issue papers must agree to present the paper at APGV. (As has always been the case, authors of regular APGV papers can still submit to TAP regular issues with appropriate additions.)

Authors of accepted papers must prepare a final electronic version of their paper that is “camera-ready”. This electronic version will appear in the ACM Digital Library as well as a conference proceedings DVD with ISBN.
