Regular paper: Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers, with 4-6 pages of technical content, figures, and references, through the submission system. Submitted papers will undergo a double-blind review process. All regular submissions will be fully refereed, and accepted papers will be presented in a technical session (oral or poster). Regular papers presented at the conference will be included in the conference proceedings and submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore.Learn more

Visual confidence refers to our ability to predict the correctness of our perceptual decisions. Knowing the limits of this ability, both in terms of biases (e.g. overconfidence) and sensitivity (e.g. blindsight), is clearly important to approach a full picture of perceptual decision making. In recent years, we have explored visual confidence using a paradigm called confidence forced-choice. In this paradigm, observers have to choose which of two perceptual decisions is more likely to be correct. I will review some behavioral results obtained with the confidence forced-choice paradigm, together with a theoretical model based on signal detection theory.
