                          Conference on
                         May 24-26, 1989
                     University of Minnesota
                     Minneapolis, Minnesota

The appearance of the three dimensional world  from  images  pro-
jected  on  our two dimensional retinas is immediate, effortless,
and compelling. Despite the vigor of research in vision over  the
past  two decades, questions remain about the nature of three di-
mensional representations and the use  of  those  representations
for  recognition and action. What information is gathered? How is
it integrated and structured? How  is  the  information  used  in
higher level perceptual tasks? This conference will bring togeth-
er nineteen prominent scientists to address these questions  from
neurophysiological,  psychological,  and  computational  perspec-

The conference is sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific
Research  and the University of Minnesota College of Liberal Arts
in cooperation  with  the  Departments  of  Psychology,  Computer
Science,  Electrical  Engineering,  Child  Development,  and  the
Center for Research in Learning, Perception, and Cognition.
