Report of the Conference on Visual Information Processing Research and Technology (Columbia, Maryland, June 10-21, 1974).
National Inst. of Education (DHEW), Washington, DC.
Chapter 1 of this report, "Introduction and General Recommendations for Eye-Movement Research and Instrumentation," discusses research priorities; encouraging and supporting theories, models, or simulations of information processing; and improved instrumentation in the field of visual information processing. Chapter 2, "Summary of Specific Recommendations," presents specific recommendations for the following four clusters: (1) reading texts, pictures, and other graphic displays; (2) processing television displays; (3) eye-movement research; and (4) instrumentation and instrumentalities. Chapter 3, "Specific Recommendations for Directions in Eye-Movement Research," recommends eye-movement research that explores the moment-to-moment information intake and processing mechanisms in the encounter of an individual with text, pictures, and other static graphic display; suggests research that explores the intake and processing of dynamic visual information as it is received from television; and argues the general value of eye movement research. Chapter 4, "Instrumentation and Instrumentalities," has four parts relating to the following areas: research, management, review, and support; instrumentation development; facilities dissemination and establishment; and priorities.
