Synopsis

This volume offers a comprehensive view of posters presented at the VIIth International Conference on Event Perception and Action. Arranged in order of appearance of their corresponding symposia on the conference program, this collection of 80 miniature articles on event perception and action represents the work of 136 researchers from 13 countries.

Excerpt

Two years ago, the organizers of the Sixth International Conference on Event Perception and Action, Peter Beek, Reinoud Bootsma, and Piet van Wieringen, decided to give the poster session a boost. Recognizing the value of this format for communicating research--flexible, interactive, and often the best way to get into the marvelous details of another's work--these farsighted editors published a collection of posters presented at the conference. the book, Studies in Perception and Action (Beek,Bootsma, andvan Wieringen, 1991), was distributed at the start of the conference, thereby allowing participants to browse, study, and prepare better questions, ones which could go beyond the "What type of control conditions did you use?" stage. Great idea, we thought; their efforts gave us another resource for research. How could we ever thank them enough? Believing that imitation is an especially sincere form of thanks, we thought a second poster book was appropriate.

This volume is a bit different than the previous poster book. To include as many different authors as possible, we asked that researchers submit their names on no more than two posters, and to limit the length of each poster. Once all the submissions arrived, we were able to create a section or "chapter" for almost all of the symposia to be presented at the conference. the 14 sections of this poster book are arranged in order of appearance of their corresponding symposia on the conference program. With these relatively few constraints and self-simplifying processes at work, we produced this poster book: a collection of 80 miniature articles on event perception and action, representing the work of 136 researchers from 13 countries.

With the publication of this second collection, we hope that the poster book will become a tradition of the International Conferences on Event Perception and Action, promoting the poster format as a valuable medium for communicating scientific research.

We have many people to recognize for their support and assistance. Most deserving of our gratitude is Patrick Grehan, Hofstra University, who was the Assistant Editor for this project, in charge of organizing all of the submissions, keeping all records, and creating the camera-ready pages on PageMaker 4.2. His skill, hard work, and patience made our jobs all the more enjoyable.
