AVA Online Christmas Meeting 2021

20 Dec 2021 archived

The 2021 AVA Christmas meeting will be held Online. 

We have decided to hold the meeting online to ensure that everyone who wants to attend is able to, given the ongoing uncertainty around travel restrictions. 

The David Marr medal winner lecture will be given by

Catherine Manning (University of Reading)


Keynote Speaker

Pascal Mamassian (CNRS & Ecole Normale Supérieure)


Registration for the meeting is free to AVA members, while non-members are able to register at the price of a membership fee and thus also join the organisation should they wish to do so. Members have the option to donate towards our grant funds.

To register for the meeting please see the links below. 

We have created a dedicated website for the meeting: https://ava2021xmas.wordpress.com This will contain all details on how the presentations will be done “virtually”, plus all the posters will be available for viewing on the website prior to the meeting. Delegates will receive a full attendance pack with Zoom IDs and passwords for all talk and poster sessions a few days prior to the meeting. 

Abstracts presented at the conference will be published in Perception.


Registration is now closed – see you soon!

Programmes have been sent out to those registering before Thursday. Programmes for late registations will be sent out by monday morning. 

Non-members also need to either pay, or join the AVA (same cost) below. Members can make a donation to the AVA's grant funds using the buttons below too. Our grants are funded by our meetings and membership income. 

Payment links for non-members are now disabled – if you needed to pay, and have not done so, we will be in touch after the meeting. You will be able to attend the meeting in the meantime.
