Every year, special invited sessions introduce new topics to the HVEI community, broadening the dialogue and encouraging new areas of research.HVEI's goal is to enable communication and collaboration across disciplines.Organized again as a satellite conference to the visual planet ECVP (European Conference on Visual Perception), the VSAC invites all people that connect visual perception and the arts (e.g., empirical, experimental, philosophical, phenomenological, computational approaches).
Wonder is also shown to provide promising accounts of aesthetic experience, beauty, and the nature of art.
The VSAC is an ideal venue to debate and collaborate on all topics associated with the perception and evaluation of artworks.
From its beginnings the VSAC has been organized as a satellite conference of the ECVP (European Conference on Visual Perception), the leading European conference on visual science.
Irving Biederman might rephrase it: "The pleasure of a rich, novel perceptual or cognitive experience derives from the opioid activity of the cerebral cortex." It is what makes us infovores, always seeking new, but interpretable experiences.
Biederman focuses on the brain's role in vision, investigating the brain processes underlying humans' ability to quickly recognize and interpret what they see.
