The Institute for Mathematical Behavioral Sciences at the University of California Irvine (UCI) invited Professor Galina Paramei to present at the conference Formal Modeling and Analysis of Color Categorization: Innovations and Insights since Berlin and Kay.
Nearly 50 years since the publication of the Berlin and Kay (1969), a book on universality and evolution of basic colour terms – which is the most influential work in the area - the conference highlighted the significant research progress made using computational approaches and mathematically-based cross-linguistic comparison of shared colour naming systems.
The conference drew from a highly interdisciplinary group of top-tier modelers and researchers, who are actively working in the area of colour naming and categorisation.
During her visit Professor Paramei was also invited to develop and participate in a UCI interdisciplinary cooperation project, which aims to model individual colour vision differences determined by the inherited factors.
