The slate of invited keynote speakers for RSS 2008 (Robotics Science and Systems) is starting to get populated. One of the speakers will be Kevin O'Regan. He does very influential work on human perception, specifically including visual attention, color perception, and change blindness. Change blindness deals with our use of attention and the fact that if our attention is misdirected in the right way we can fail to observe truly significant changes in the visual world.

There are a slew of other very exciting and diverse speakers also planned for RSS. One of the strategies for RSS keynote speakers is to invite well-established figures who are "tangential" to the conventional robotics community, and who can introduce new ideas, issues and research.
