will cover a number of broad themes relevant to Visual Attention, among
them:

- Foundation: Early vision, Visual streams, Perception and action,
Log-map
  analysis
- Attentional mechanisms: Pop-out theory, Texton theory, Contour
integration
  and closure, Fuzzy engagement mechanisms
- Visual search : Attentional control, Selective attention, Spatial
attention,
  Detection versus discrimination
- Multiresolution and planning : Complexity of search tasks,
Hierarchical
  perceptual loops, Multiresolution and associative memory systems,
  Attention and action planning
- Attentional Visual Architectures: Neural models of visual attention,
  Hierarchical and associative networks, Attentional pyramidal neural
  mechanisms
- Experiences: Eyeputer and scanpath recorders, etc.

POETIC TOUCH

Vietri (from "Veteri", its ancient Roman name) sul Mare ("on sea") is
located within walking distance from Salerno and marks the beginning
of the Amalfi coast. Short rides take to Positano, Sorrento, Pompei,
Herculaneum, Paestum, Vesuvius, or by boat, the islands of Capri,
Ischia, and Procida. Velia (the ancient "Elea" of Zeno and
Parmenide) is a hundred kilometers farther down along the coast.
