Welcome to the ACM Symposium on Applied Perception

(formerly known as APGV)

Since 2004, the ACM Symposium on Applied Perception (ACM SAP), formerly known as APGV, aims to further the development of inter-disciplinary research that crosses the boundaries between perception and disciplines such as graphics, visualization, vision, haptics and acoustics. These fields can benefit from the exchange of ideas and the scope includes applications and algorithms in any area of research that incorporates elements of perception and computer science.

This year, SAP will be held in Trinity College Dublin. The symposium will be held just before the European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP), so do not hesitate to attend SAP on your way to ECVP. More information will be available soon.
