How is a complex visual scene processed? How is the selection of one
particular location in a visual scene accomplished? Does it involve
bottom-up, sensory driven cues or top-down world knowledge expectations or
both? How is the decision made when to terminate a fixation and move the
gaze? How is the decision made where to direct the gaze in order to take the
next sample? The goal of the special issue is to advance our understanding
of the state-of-the-art on bottom-up and top-down approaches to active
visual search and picture scanning. Neurocomputational, computer vision and
experimental review papers on perceptual saliency, attention, learning and
memory, decision making and gaze control are welcome. The manner in which
attention is involved is considered a highly relevant topic to the special
