Perceptual Organization: Assessing the State of the Community and Charting New Research Directions

  • Kim L. Boyer

Part of the The Kluwer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 546)


This is an edited book drawn from the IEEE-NSF International Workshop on Perceptual Organization in Computer Vision, held in Corfu, Greece, in September 1999. The theme of the workshop was “Assessing the state of the community and charting new research directions,” and it will be clear upon perusing this book that the workshop did precisely that. To understand fully the significance of the meeting, it is best to review some history.
