Vision is predictive, allowing us to react to changing situations in a timely manner. Catching a ball, locking gaze on a moving target, tracking a person’s intentions, all require understanding a trajectory of change and predicting the outcome. This theme is a focus of research in several fields and each session of this conference spans three of them: human vision, computer/computational vision, and visual neuroscience. This conference is held every two years and is now co-organized and supported by our CFREF-funded Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA) program.



  • Moving targets, moving sensors: eyes and cameras 
  • Concurrent predictions across streams and modalities
  • Attention and recurrent processes
  • Analysis of human actions and activities
  • Visually guided control
  • Scene dynamics
