This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Biologically Motivated Computer Vision, BMCV 2002, held in Tübingen, Germany, in November 2002.
The 22 revised full papers and 37 revised short papers presented together with 6 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 97 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on neurons and features, motion, mid-level vision, recognition - from scenes to neurons, attention, robotics, and cognitive vision.
