Human Vision and Electronic Imaging

The International Conference on
Perception and Cognition in Electronic Media

January 14 - 17, 2019                         Hyatt Regency SFO, Burlingame, California, USA

part of the Symposium on Electronic Imaging Science and Technology

from IS&T - the Society for Imaging Science and Technology

The goal of this conference is to explore the role of human perception and cognition in the design, analysis, and use of electronic media systems. Over the years, it has brought together researchers from a wide variety of disciplines, from all over the world, for a rich and lively exchange of ideas. We believe that understanding that the human observer is fundamental to the advancement of electronic media systems, and that advances in these systems and applications are driving new research into the perception and cognition of the human observer.

HVEI Banquet

The First HVEI Banquet was organized in 1998 in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the conference. Since that time, the Annual HVEI Banquet has become a tradition of the conference, providing an opportunity to reminisce, cogitate, and speculate with colleagues in this exciting multidisciplinary field. We invite you to join us for this year's banquet:

  • JPI - The Journal of Perceptual Imaging

    IS&T is proud to announce the launch of a new journal at the intersection of perception and imaging. JPI focuses on the role of the human in imaging and visualization systems, in a wide range of application areas. The goal is to promote research that explores how principles of perception and cognition support and inspire new technologies, and how emerging technologies drive new questions for perceptual research.

    The Journal of Perceptual Imaging has a broad scope, welcoming research from a wide range of disciplines, technologies and application areas. Experimental, theoretical, and survey papers are welcome.

    Papers submitted to HVEI may be submitted with a "JPI-first" option, in which accepted papers will be published in JPI instead of the on-line conference proceedings. In order to allow time for the more rigorous review and possible revisions, JPI-first papers must be submitted by June 30th.
