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 eighth annual event provides an intimate, immersive forum for exchanging ideas about areas of overlapping interests. This year, APGV 2011 will be co-located with the European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP), the largest European conference on visual perception.

We invite submissions of original work in all areas that link perception, computer graphics and visualization. This includes, for example, methods for visual, auditory and multimodal representation, work that advances research on perception and cognition using methods from computer graphics and visualization, and studies that exploit perception research to optimize and design technical systems in these areas.

Relevant topics 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
  • perception and visuomotor control in computer games, virtual and augmented environments
  • fundamental contributions in spatial and temporal vision that are relevant for technical applications
  • 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, especially if relevant for technical applications
  • 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 2011 with the European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP), we aim to further promote communication between the fundamental and the more applied aspects of perception, while bringing APGV back to Europe.


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; see below for a description of the posters program, which this year presents some novelties). Papers that are not accepted can 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 this page: 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 recent agreement with the ACM Transactions on Applied Perception (TAP) and the ACM Publications Board, the five strongest accepted papers will be offered the possibility to be published as full paper at the ACM journal TAP. These papers will undergo a second review cycle, during which the authors will need to improve the paper as indicated by the summary review (similar to conditionally accepts at SIGGRAPH). 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.


Each accepted poster will have a surface that is 8 feet long and 4 feet high. This gives a large canvas on which to work and it is up to the authors how they choose to use it.
