As part of the 5th International Conference on Computer Vision Systems (
ICVS2007 <http://www.icvs2007.org/>) that will take place from March 21st to
24th 2007 in Bielefeld (Germany), we ask for contributions for the workshop:

*From Computational Cognitive Neuroscience to Computer Vision - CCNCV 2007*




*Description of the workshop*

This workshop aims to foster the transfer of knowledge from the area of
Computational Cognitive Neuroscience to Computer Vision. The seemingly
simplicity of visual perception has periodically attracted machine vision
scientists to build biologically inspired algorithms. Although such
biologically motivated algorithms have not revolutionized Computer Vision,
we believe that several reasons exist that motivate an ongoing exchange. In
the recent years there has been much progress in the understanding of brain
processes such as visual attention, object recognition, learning of complex
feature detectors, decision making and high level cognitive control, to name
a few. This work is yet often not suitable for real world applications, but
it might lead to new developments, and in the long run, to better algorithms
in machine vision.
*General topics*

We invite contributions from the area of Computational Cognitive
Neuroscience that relate to Computer Vision. The contribution should
emphasize those properties of neural models that potentially lead to
applications in Computer Vision. We do not expect that these applications
already exist.
*Submissions (format, styles, etc.)*

Abstracts of max 1 page (preferably PDF) should be submitted to
fhamker at uni-muenster.de. The work should be novel but it can be already
published. The primary criterion of acceptance is the relevance for the
