Call: ACM SAP 2022: ACM Symposium on Applied Perception

Call for Papers

ACM Symposium on Applied Perception
September 22-23, 2022

Deadline for abstract submission: May 30, 2022
Deadline for paper submission: June 3, 2022

The ACM Symposium on Applied Perception (ACM SAP) provides an intimate forum for researchers who combine knowledge, methods, and insights from perception research and computer science disciplines. This includes such disciplines as cognitive psychology, perceptual psychology, psychophysics, behavior-analysis, and neuroscience on the perceptual side and computer graphics, computer vision, visualization, virtual reality and human-computer interfaces on the visual computing side.

The interdisciplinary focus of this conference acknowledges that the various scientific disciplines in perception research and computer science research use different but complementary methods to address fundamentally similar questions. As such, combinations of knowledge, methods, and/or insights from the different fields can help to advance all of the applied perception fields.

ACM SAP 2022 will be held online September 22-23, 2022. The organizers plan to have online streaming and social interaction options for virtual attendance for both attendees and speakers.


SAP welcomes submissions related to topics relevant to both perception and computer science such as:
Application of perceptual research to any area of computer science, including but not limited to:

  • modeling, rendering, animation;
  • virtual environments, characters, avatars;
  • processing information from artificial sensors;
  • representation of data, communication of data, interaction with data.

Applications of computer science to any area of perception, including but not limited to:

  • modeling natural perceptual systems;
  • simulating natural perceptual systems.

Emerging topics such as:

  • animal perception, privacy and security;
  • novel sensors;
  • studies that combine perception and computing research toward applications to healthcare;
  • deep space exploration;
  • cultural and ecological preservation.


Submission should be sent using the link We invite submissions of original work in all areas of applied perception, including all sensory modalities (vision, haptics, acoustics, proprioception, etc.). We welcome short and long papers submissions respectively up to 4 and 8 pages (not including references or appendices). The focus of the work can be either perceptual or computational, but each submission must include elements of both perception and computing. Research that is not accepted as a paper will automatically be considered for the poster session. Authors will have the option to decline to have their work be considered as a poster. Detailed submission and review guidelines are available on the conference website in the Information for Authors section.


Under an agreement with the ACM Transactions on Applied Perception (TAP) and the ACM Publications Board, the strongest accepted papers will be offered publication as full papers in the ACM journal TAP (instead of appearing in the proceedings). Authors of such special issue papers must agree to present the paper at ACM SAP. As has always been the case, authors of regular ACM SAP papers can still submit to TAP regular issues with appropriate additions. Papers that have been recommended for acceptance in the ACM TAP journal will undergo a second review cycle, during which the authors will revise the paper to address reviewer concerns.

All deadlines are 23:59:59 GMT.
