Abstract:

This meeting was motivated by recent progress in our understanding of how visual information specifying the spatial relations of objects and the layout of the environment controls an observers perceptual judgments and motor performance. This meeting was intended to spread knowledge of these new advances and to foster their discussion and refinement. Eighteen leaders in this field who are also excellent expositors presented 45-minute addresses at a meeting lasting two and a half days. Presentations were organized into sessions on retinotopic calibration, perceptual stability, the metrics of 3-D space, perceptual adaptation, and eye-hand coordination. Each session was followed by a 30-minute discussion of the presentations led by a moderatordiscussant selected to challenge the speakers and to foster productive interaction with the audience.
