Rationale for the Special Issue “Seeing Colors”
Color vision is a prevalent sensory modality in modern society. We use
color to communicate messages (“red means stop”, “green means go”), to
highlight existing information, to denote the national identity (the
colors in each country’s flag) and to enhance the salience of otherwise
unnoticed information. It has a powerful role in grouping, which is why
subway maps are often shown in color and virtually impossible to use
when printed in gray scale. Color also plays an important role in
aesthetic appreciation. Color is essential for pictorial works of art,
architecture, design, cosmetics and fashion.
Vision science has come a long way to deepen own understanding of color
vision. In this Special Issue of iPerception, we hope to gather
innovative reports on the latest experimental findings and theoretical
developments from researchers in color vision. This Call for Papers is
directed to authors who would like to contribute to current theories of
color vision and known phenomena related to color vision, including the
underlying retinal and brain processes. With this interdisciplinary
approach, we hope to attract contributions from researchers from
neuroscience, ophthalmology, vision and color science, cognitive
psychology, art history and philosophy.
The Special Issue “Seeing Colors” follows up on an International
Symposium that took place from September 19 – 21, 2016 at the University
of Regensburg, Germany (http://ift.tt/2e5Xw31). All contributors to
that symposium are welcomed to submit a paper based on their presented
or other related work. The Call for Papers is also open to all research
in the area of color vision with a focus on either basic mechanisms,
applied research and/or clinical applications.
We welcome your contributions to this Special Issue of iPerception. Your
submission will be peer-reviewed by experts in the related fields. If
accepted, you will be expected to pay for the costs for open-access
further details concerning guidelines for authors see:
