CALL FOR PAPERS: NEW PERSPECTIVES ON COLOUR, AISB-50, 1st-4th April 2014, Goldsmiths, London, UK - EXTENDED DEADLINE

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

FLYER: http://doc.gold.ac.uk/~mas01kd/aisb50/CFP_AISB50_colour_poster.pdf


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

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.

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.
