    • Cognitive and emotional representations of terror attacks: a cross-cultural exploration 

      Shiloh, S.; Güvenç, G.; Önkal D. (Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, 2007)
      A questionnaire measuring cognitive and affective representations of terror risk was developed and tested in Turkey and Israel. Participants in the study were university students from the two countries (n = 351). Four ...
    • Context-dependent lightness affects perceived contrast 

      Pamir, Z.; Boyaci, H. (Elsevier Ltd, 2016)
      Perceived contrast of a grating varies with its background (or mean) luminance: of the two gratings with the same photometric contrast the one on higher luminance background appears to have higher contrast. Does perceived ...
    • A decision theoretic approach to motion saliency in computer animations 

      Arpa, Sami; Bülbül, Abdullah; Çapın, Tolga (Springer, Berlin, Heidelberg, 2011)
      We describe a model to calculate saliency of objects due to their motions. In a decision-theoretic fashion, perceptually significant objects inside a scene are detected. The work is based on psychological studies and ...
    • Effects of different lighting arrangements on space perception 

      Yücetaş, Banu (Bilkent University, 1997)
      The importance given to the quality of lighting design has increased in recent years. This makes lighting design more an art than an engineering problem and it is closely related to the way a space is perceived. It is ...
    • Effects of different lighting arrangements on space perception 

      Manav, B.; Yener, C. (Taylor & Francis, 1999)
      The idea to improve the quality of lighting design in interior spaces has gained importance in the last years. This experimental study concentrateson the quality of lighting and the relation between lighting arrangements ...
    • Enforcing creativity in graphic design 

      Erdurak, Naciye Derin (Bilkent University, 2002)
      Enforcing creativity in basic design is as important as giving students the design principles and elements. During their first year all design students are taking basic design courses in order to learn those principles ...
    • Expanded video: creating an alternative reality through merging 360-degree video and Glitch Art 

      Aydınat, Melih (Bilkent University, 2018-09)
      This thesis investigates the merging of 360-degree video with Glitch Art in a form of ‘Virtual Reality’ experience while creating an alternative reality. The technological development in the field of Virtual Reality made ...
    • Global disorder and the limits of 'dialogue' 

      Salt, J. (Routledge, 2008)
      Since 2001 (designated as the UN Year of Dialogue Among Civilisations) several initiatives have been developed as a means of resolving problems whose causes have been ascribed, primarily by Samuel Huntington and Bernard ...
    • A group-based approach for gaze behavior of virtual crowds incorporating personalities 

      Ağıl, U.; Güdükbay U. (John Wiley and Sons, 2018)
      Predicting interest points of virtual characters and accurately simulating their gaze behavior play a significant role for realistic crowd simulations. We propose a saliency model that enables virtual agents to produce ...
    • How the ocean personality model affects the perception of crowds 

      Durupınar, F.; Pelechano, N.; Allbeck, J. M.; Güdükbay U.; Badler, N. I. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011)
      A personality model named High-Density Autonomous Crowds (HiDAC) simulation system provides individual differences by assigning each person different psychological and physiological traits. Users normally set these parameters ...
    • Impact of lighting arrangements and illuminances on different impressions of a room 

      Durak, A.; Camgöz Olguntürk, N.; Yener, C.; Güvenç, D.; Gürçinar, Y. (Elsevier, 2007)
      This study explores whether different lighting arrangements (general lighting, wall washing and cove lighting) and different illuminances (500 and 320 lux) could affect the perception of the same space. An experimental ...
    • Inter-ethnic (In)tolerance between Turks and Kurds: Implications for Turkish Democratisation 

      Sarigil, Z.; Karakoc, E. (Routledge, 2017)
      Using public opinion survey data, this study investigates the determinants of inter-ethnic (in)tolerance among Turks and Kurds in Turkey. Our empirical analyses show that, compared with Turks, Kurds have a relatively higher ...
    • Is Culture a superficial barrier to global marketing?: A Case study of food and drink products in Turkey 

      Sezer, Sibel (Bilkent University, 1989)
      In a world of converging needs and desires, globally standardizing products would lead to lower production costs, improved quality of products as well as management. The validity of this argument proposed by "global ...
    • Observational cinema and embodied vision 

      Uslu, Ayşe (Bilkent University, 2011)
      The aim of this study is to discuss the notion of embodiment in respect of Merleau Ponty's philosophy of phenomenology and its relation to observational cinema. For this aim, this thesis dwells on the embodied nature of ...
    • A perceptional model to understand immersion 

      Alper, C Armağan (Bilkent University, 2009)
      The aim of this study is to offer a new model for the concept of immersion based on the process of perception in humans. The motivation behind the study is that although the concept of immersion points to an important ...
    • A perceptual approach for stereoscopic rendering optimization 

      Bulbul, A.; Cipiloglu, Z.; Capin, T. (Pergamon Press, 2010)
      The traditional way of stereoscopic rendering requires rendering the scene for left and right eyes separately; which doubles the rendering complexity. In this study, we propose a perceptually-based approach for accelerating ...
    • Saliency for animated meshes with material properties 

      Bülbül, Abdullah; Koca, Çetin; Çapin, Tolga; Güdükbay, Uğur (ACM, 2010-07)
      We propose a technique to calculate the saliency of animated meshes with material properties. The saliency computation considers multiple features of 3D meshes including their geometry, material and motion. Each feature ...
