Color Naming Transitions

We explore the notion that variations in cone spectral sensitivities could cause variations in color-name boundaries between individuals. Fifteen observers made color matches to a test stimulus (580 nm) with three primary lights in a visual colorimeter. The same observers took part in two psychophysical experiments to determine the color-naming boundary between two focal colors (yellow and green). In one experiment observers used a slider bar to indicate the boundary; in the other they were presented with a color stimulus and asked to state whether it was yellow or green in a 2afc design. In the case of the 2afc experiment the results indicate some evidence to suggest a correlation in the position of the name boundary and the ratio of red and green lights used in visual color matches.

More about this publication?
  • CIC is the premier annual technical gathering for scientists, technologists, and engineers working in the areas of color science and systems, and their application to color imaging. Participants represent disciplines ranging from psychophysics, optical physics, image processing, color science to graphic arts, systems engineering, and hardware and software development. While a broad mix of professional interests is the hallmark of these conferences, the focus is color. CICs traditionally offer two days of short courses followed by three days of technical sessions that include three keynotes, an evening lecture, a vibrant interactive (poster) papers session, and workshops. An endearing symbol of the meeting is the Cactus Award, given each year to the author(s) of the best interactive paper; there are also Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards.
