Braunschweig, Germany


Computer graphics, vision, and psychophysics form a scientific triad whose interdisciplinary research is about to fundamentally change the way we drive our cars, watch movies, play games, communicate with one another and computers, socially interact, learn, live. In six distinguished lectures, some of the most renowned scientists worldwide in these fields will share their view on what has already been accomplished, which challenges still lie ahead, and what we may expect in the future. The symposium is intended to bring together all scientific communities interested in visual computing and perception, to stir everyone's imagination, and to foster exciting new research between graphics, vision, and perception.
