We will be celebrating twenty years of AVA (Applied Vision Association) Christmas Meetings with a Meeting in London on Monday 21st of December.
This is a one-day meeting to be held in the People’s Palace Building at Queen Mary University of London. This year's keynote talks will be:
Laura Busse (Tubingen University) "Contextual modulation of information processing in the mouse early visual system”
Peter Neri (Ecole Normale Superieure) "Object segmentation controls image reconstruction from natural scenes"
Denis Pelli (New York University) "Converging on a computational model of object recognition: psychophysics and machine learning."
Abstracts (max length: 250 words) should be submitted by Wednesday November 25th at 5pm (revised & final deadline).
Abstracts will be peer-reviewed & published in the journal Perception (so long as presenting authors attend the meeting) and should cover previously unreported research on any aspect of vision in humans, animals and machines. Abstracts must be in the standard format for ECVP/Perception, examples can be seen at: http://www.perceptionweb.com/P.html References should be given in the body of the abstract in full, but without the title. e.g. (Rayner et al, 2001, Vis Res, 41, 943-954) Unless otherwise stated (at the end of the abstract), it will be assumed that the first author will be the presenting author.
Note that no copyright agreement needs to be signed, but it is the authors responsibility to disclose or sort out any conflict of interest or the clearing of any copyright issues that might arise.
Please submit your abstract online:
Speakers should use their own laptop or bring a powerpoint presentation on a memory stick.
The organizers will try to accommodate preferences for a talk or poster but the number of submissions that this meeting now attracts means that this is not always possible.
We look forward to seeing you.
A short report of this meeting was written by AVA committee member Craig Aaen-Stockdale and published in the International Ergonomics Association (IEA) visual ergonomics newsletter in April 2016. The report is included here.
