Workshop 3 invitation
The workshop addresses interdisciplinary research and novel investigative methods for the measurement of multidimensional, complex phenomena mediated by human perception and interpretation: Measuring the Impossible.
It will be an occasion to share advancements, findings and achievements of research projects related to ‘impossible measurements’. This will be done in an open and unrestricted dialogue among the disciplines, interdisciplines and application areas of the physical, natural, psychological and social sciences. Projects funded within the EU-FP6 “Measuring the Impossible” initiative, as well as other research projects are welcome.
The workshop will be organised in sessions dedicated to specific topics within the Measuring the Impossible.
This workshop will focus on the presentation and discussion of methods and research in the following areas:
- measurement theory
- human perception
- neuroscience, including fMRI
- physical/physiological measurements including vision and audio
- modelling including pattern recognition/machine learning/reasoning
This is the third “Measuring the Impossible” workshop and part of a series of events organised within the framework of the MINET (Measuring the Impossible NETwork) project, part of the EU-FP6 initiative Measuring the Impossible.
