Call For Papers

The ACM Symposium on Applied Perception (ACM SAP), formerly known as APGV, aims to advance and promote 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. The scope of the conference includes applications and algorithms in any area of research that incorporates elements of perception and computer science.

Our eleventh annual event provides an intimate, immersive forum for exchanging ideas about areas of overlapping interests. The ACM SAP 2014 conference will be held in Vancouver Canada on August 8th and 9th, immediately prior to the 41st International Conference and Exhibition on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques (SIGGRAPH). We aim to further promote communication between the core perception and computer graphics communities.

For more information see:

We invite submissions of original work in all areas of applied perception. Relevant areas include:

Modeling, rendering, and animation
Computational aesthetics
Haptic rendering, haptic input and perception
Computer vision
Color vision and color appearance modeling
Interaction techniques and interfaces
Augmented reality
Virtual worlds
Display technologies
Auditory display and interfaces
Perceptual auditory coding
Spatialized sound
Speech synthesis and recognition
Sensory integration
Multimodal rendering
Spatial and temporal vision
Empirical perception research
Attention and eye movements
Statistical learning and perception of natural scenes
Perception of shapes, surfaces and materials


Research can be submitted as a long paper (up to 8 pages and a 20 minute talk), a short paper (up to 4 pages and a 15 minute talk), or as a poster presentation (1 page abstract). Papers that are not accepted will be considered for the poster session. Authors of posters accepted by this route will, of course, have the option to decline the opportunity to present a poster. Please check the formatting guidelines before submitting your work on this page. Submissions do not need to be anonymous.


A poster presentation is an opportunity for authors to display and discuss achievements that are not ready for publication or have not been published previously. The poster session is always an integral part of SAP with specific time allotted for participants to view and discuss the work. All poster presenters will have the opportunity to give a one-minute description of their work during a poster fast-forward session. Poster presentations are not formal publications. We encourage all types of scholarly poster submissions that fit the scope of ACM-SAP. Poster abstracts should follow the ACM SIGGRAPH formatting guidelines for papers, except that they should be 1 page long. Poster abstracts do not have color plates. Maximal individual poster size will be A0.

Further details

All papers will be carefully reviewed by our International Program Committee. Papers will be evaluated as submitted, given limited time between submission and printing of final versions. Under a recent agreement with the ACM Transactions on Applied Perception (TAP) and the ACM Publications Board, the strongest accepted papers will be offered publication as full papers in the ACM journal TAP. These papers will undergo a second review cycle, during which the authors will revise the paper to address concerns posed in the summary review (similar to conditional acceptances at ACM SIGGRAPH). Authors of such special issue papers must agree to present the paper at ACM SAP. As has always been the case, authors of regular ACM SAP papers can still submit to TAP regular issues with appropriate additions.
