Inrecentresearchoncomputervisionsystems,attentionhasbeenplayingacrucialrolein mediatingbottom-upandtop-downpathsofinformationprocessing. Inappliedresearch, the improvement of allowing applied sciences reminiscent of miniaturized cellular sensors, video surveillance platforms, and ambient intelligence structures includes the real-time research of large amounts of information. wisdom should be utilized approximately what should be attendedto,andwhen,andwhattodoinameaningfulsequence,incorrespondencewith visible suggestions. equipment on consciousness and keep an eye on are needed to render machine imaginative and prescient platforms extra powerful. The 2d foreign Workshop on cognizance and function in Computational imaginative and prescient (WAPCV 2004) used to be held within the Czech Technical college of Prague, Czech Republic, as an linked workshop of the eighth eu convention on desktop - sion (ECCV 2004). The objective of this workshop used to be to supply an interdisciplinary discussion board tocommunicatecomputationalmodelsofvisualattentionfromvariousviewpoints,such as from laptop imaginative and prescient, psychology, robotics and neuroscience. the inducement for - terdisciplinarity used to be communique and notion past the person neighborhood, to concentration dialogue on computational modelling, to stipulate suitable ambitions for p- formance comparability, to discover promising software domain names, and to debate those with regards to all similar features of cognitive imaginative and prescient. The workshop used to be held as a single-day, single-track occasion, which includes top of the range podium and poster presen- tions. Invited talks got through John okay. Tsotsos approximately consciousness and have binding in biologically influenced machine imaginative and prescient and via Gustavo Deco in regards to the context of consciousness, reminiscence and present from the viewpoint of computational neuroscience. The interdisciplinary application committee was once composed of 21 the world over r- ognized researchers.
