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 eight 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:

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.


The poster boards are 1m across and 2m high. This works well with a standard A0 format arrangement in portrait (vertical) mode. We will be able to allow two boards per poster if you prefer.
