Call for Participation & Papers
‘Topology, geometry, and function‘
Workshop / Seminar on
topology and geometry of information visualization

2018, June 1 and 2,
Laboratory of Perceptual and Cognitive Systems, Faculty of Computing,
University of Latvia, Riga, Latvia

In our workshop we will discuss the ways geometric, topological, and 
functional principles shape human visuo-spatial perception and impact 
the perception of information visualization. We will also explore the 
impacts of spatial abilities on learning.
Results of several recent studies from our Lab will be presented in 

In our workshop we will focus and welcome submissions 
on the following topics:
•	features of processing topological and geometric information in 
respect to information visualization;
•	different forms of geometry and their impact on visuo-spatial 
•	strength of invariants in geometric and topological structures;
•	similarity and structural alignment;
•	generation of units in perception - topological or geometric?;
•	methodological aspects 
(formal modeling of geometric and topological systems, morphometry, 
issues of data collection and analysis etc.).

Plenary keynote speakers include:
Prof. Kenny Coventry, FBPS, FRSA, Head of the School of Psychology, 
University of East Anglia, UK
Prof. Cees van Leeuwen, Laboratory for Perceptual Dynamics, KU Leuven, 

Partners: University of Latvia Foundation, Accenture
