CALL FOR PAPERS: New Perspectives on Colour, AISB-50, April 1st-4th 2014 Goldsmiths, University of London, UK

http://doc.gold.ac.uk/~mas01kd/aisb50/

OVERVIEW
Understanding the way in which we experience colour is a topic that crosses many disciplines. 
From scientific measurement to subjective phenomena, colour is as diverse an area of study as 
Artificial Intelligence itself.  Colour permeates all aspects of our daily lives and yet still 
contains many unknowns. If we can gain a better understanding of how we perceive colour then 
we can use this information to drive advancement in technology, both in the machine processing 
of colour information and in simulation of the human visual system. Instead of (re)attempting 
to define how we experience colour, this symposium asks how we can explore and use what knowledge 
we already have, particularly across a wide range of disciplines.


TOPICS OF INTEREST
This symposium will offer the chance to explore the usefulness of our knowledge of colour from 
an interdisciplinary perspective. We encourage contributions from a wide range of fields such 
as psychology, philosophy, neurology and colour science through to (but by no means limited to) 
computer graphics and vision, linguistics, art and the Classics. There are no prescribed topics 
of interest: we welcome proposals from anyone in any discipline whose research is concerned with 
the perception, understanding and use of colour. It is hoped that engaging a broad variety of 
disciplines will enable all participants to reflect on insights that may not be obvious or 
prevalent within their own research. 

The symposium will be organized around talks (the accepted full papers) and an informal discussion.
The outcome of this symposium will be a broadened perspective of approaches to colour and a 
chance to foster new interdisciplinary research connections and collaborations.

SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION 
Submissions must be full papers and should be sent via EasyChair: 
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aisb50

Text editor templates from a pervious convention can be found at:	
http://www.aisb.org.uk/convention/aisb08/download.html

We request that submitted papers are limited to eight pages. Each paper will receive at least 
two reviews. Selected papers will be published in the general proceedings of the AISB convention, 
with the proviso that at least ONE author attends the symposium in order to present the paper and 
participate in general symposium activities.


IMPORTANT DATES
i. Full paper submission deadline: 3rd January 2014
ii. Notification of acceptance/rejection decisions: 3rd February 2014
iii. Final versions of accepted papers: 24th February 2014
iv. Convention: 1-4 April, with this symposium on Thursday 3rd April


ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Please note that there will be separate proceedings for each symposium, produced before the 
convention. Each delegate will receive a memory stick containing the proceedings of all the 
symposia. In previous years there have been awards for the best student paper, and limited 
student bursaries. These details will be circulated as and when they become available. Authors 
of a selection of the best papers will be invited to submit and extended version of the work to 
a journal special issue.
