Overview of PPTG
The Perception and Performance Technical Group's primary
purpose is to promote exchanging information about perception
and its relation to human performance. As its name implies,
PPTG encompasses all sensory/perceptual modalities,
not just vision, and encourages multi-modal approaches.
Areas of concern include the nature, content, and quantification
of sensory information and the context in which it is
displayed; the physics and psychophysics of information
display; perceptual and cognitive representation and
interpretation of displayed information; assessment
of workload using tasks having a significant perceptual
component; as well as the actions and behaviors that
result from information presented to the various sensory
