New Journal: ACM Transactions on Applied Perception

Dear List -

Enclosed is the announcement of a very interesting new ACM journal
aimed at strengthening the links between experimental psychlogy and
technical fields like computer science and engineering.

ACM Transactions on Applied Perception - Call for papers

Aims and scope

Numerous breakthroughs in computer science have come out of the
assimilation of results from other disciplines.  Recently, there has
been an increasing appreciation of the gains that can be made through
the application of findings from the field of experimental psychology.
Similarly, the latter may benefit from computational and algorithmic
advances in computer science. The purpose of ACM Transactions on
Applied Perception is to further the development of inter-disciplinary
research that crosses the boundaries between perception and computer
science disciplines such as graphics, vision, acoustics and
haptics. This journal aims to broaden the synergy between computer
science and psychology/perception by publishing top quality papers
that help to unify research in these fields. The scope of this journal
includes applications and algorithms in any area of research that
incorporates elements of perception and computer science. Topics
include, but are not limited to:

   perceptually based techniques in computer graphics,
   scientific/data/information visualization, digital
   imaging and computer vision.

   auditory display and interfaces, perceptual auditory
   coding, spatialized sound, speech synthesis/recognition

   haptic rendering, haptic input and perception

   vestibular interfaces, eye/head tracking input,
   gesture input, body movement input

Multimodal rendering and multimodal interaction:

Sensory integration:


Submission procedure

We will begin accepting papers in March 2003 and anticipate
to publish the first issue in January 2004. Please visit the
