Announcement for a Workshop on "Visual Categorisation and Image Management Systems"

The objective of the workshop is to bring together Information Retrieval researchers, Neuroscientists, Visual Scientists and Cognitive Psychologists to present and discuss recent findings on image categorisation in artificial and natural systems. This will give the opportunity to scientists who seldom meet at conferences to share methods of data analysis (such as Cluster Analysis, Multidimensional Scaling, and Consensus Analysis) and theoretical approaches (such as Top-Down and Bottom-Up) to the image categorisation process.

The workshop will be held at the University of Sunderland, St. Peter's Campus, on the 28th June 2006. It will comprise invited lectures, oral presentations and a plenary discussion.

The workshop is now open for registration.  Participants wishing to give an oral presentation of 15-20 minutes should submit abstracts of 500 words maximum (references excluded) by the 15th April 2006.  Notification of acceptance will be communicated by the 21st May 2006.  Abstracts submitted by doctoral students or researchers at early stages in their careers will be particularly welcome. Abstracts should submitted electronically at :

While there will be no registration fee for the workshop, participants registering will have to cover their own travel and hotel expenses.

Information and registration forms are available on the conference website at

The workshop is sponsored by the Multimedia Knowledge Management Network - EPSRC ( ).
