[visionlist] FIO – Poster-only Submission Extension: Now through 30 JunePosted: June 17, 2017
Frontiers in Optics – the Optical Society of America’s Annual meeting, has extended the submission deadline for posters only until June 30, 2017 (12 EDT/16:00 GMT). FIO will take place in Washington DC (Technical conference: Sept. 17th to the 21st, Exhibition 19-20th). More info can be found here: http://ift.tt/2sCxnjm subcommittee on Vision and Color is comprised of Jeff Mulligan (Nasa), Marina Zannoli (Oculus Research), and myself, Gabriel Diaz. Please note the submission categories below, and consider sending in your poster for presentation
FiO 7: Vision and Color
7.1 Mixed/Virtual Reality: Novel Challenges for Vision ScienceVirtual and mixed reality head-mounted displays introduce novel challenges for vision science and display engineering. These new technologies have sparked renewed interest for known scientific questions (e.g. perceptuo-motor recalibration, depth distortions, simulator sickness, and visual fatigue due to the vergence-accommodation conflict). In addition, they also open new avenues of research to develop novel ways to deliver rich sensory information to active observers (e.g. light fields, holographic displays). Submissions are encouraged that identify/improve understanding of perceptual issues, and/or propose novel solutions based on engineering, computational imaging, and vision science. 7.2 Gaze Behavior in Computationally Generated or Sensed EnvironmentsThe ability to incorporate eye tracking into contexts involving computationally generated (i.e. virtual or augmented reality) or digitally reconstructed environments (e.g. as through the use photogrammetry, structure from motion, or simultaneous localization and mapping) presents new opportunities of application and in methodology. Submissions are encouraged that present novel applications, algorithms, or findings, related to eye tracking in computationally generated or sensed environments. 7.3 Visual factors in DrivingAs the modern vehicle transitions towards increasingly autonomous control, considerations related to the role of the human are rapidly changing. In addition to existing concerns related to navigation and visibility during continuous control, new questions have arisen related to visual attention, and cognitive/visual distraction when given intermittent control of an otherwise autonomous vehicle. We encourage submissions relating to visual factors while driving, including but not limited investigations of visual attention, distraction, and upon the effectiveness of visual aids intended to mitigate these concerns (e.g. heads-up displays). 7.4 General Topics in VisionThis subtopic encompasses all applications of optics and photonics to basic, applied, and clinical vision science that do not fit the above three specific subtopics. Submissions will be evaluated according to their appeal to the broader OSA community, their relevance to the study of human vision, their relevance to related industries, and to submissions that relate to one or more of the conferences four themes: automotive, optics in computing, virtual reality and augmented reality, and nanophotonics and plasmonics.
