We are pleased to announce the call for abstracts for this year’s Christmas AVA meeting on the 21st December 2020.
This year we will be running the conference virtually and it will also include the annual general meeting (AGM). Registration for the meeting will be Free to AVA members, while non-members will be 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.
We have created a dedicated website for the meeting: https://ava2020meeting.wordpress.com Please visit the website to find out how to format and submit abstracts as well as obtain further information about the meeting. We are looking for submissions for research talks and posters (for details on how the presentations will be done “virtually”, please have a look at the information on our site), particularly from early-career researchers, but everyone is welcome to submit. The presenting author must be registered, and “attend” the conference, or the abstract will be withdrawn. Abstracts presented at the conference will be published in Perception.
We will have two keynotes: GJ Burton memorial lecture by Prof Anna Franklin (University of Sussex) and a keynote by Prof Charles Leek (University of Liverpool).
The meeting is organised by the AVA committee members Samantha Strong (Aston University), Paul Warren (University of Manchester), Gunnar Schmidtmann (University of Plymouth), and Jasna Martinovic (University of Edinburgh). If you have any queries (formal or informal) please get in touch with the AVA secretariat (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Please note that the abstract deadline is 6th November 2020.
For details of how to prepare your submission, and for a link to the abstract template, please visit the meeting website.
Registration is free for members of the AVA – if you would like to register for free, please do so using this form. We also offer an option for members to register and donate a small amount of money to support the AVA – should you wish to do that, please use the paypal links below for the donation, in addition to registering through the form.
For non-members, please fill out the registration form and use the links below to pay the registration fee. The links will take you to paypal. You can pay by credit card or paypal account. You will receive a receipt for the meeting via paypal. Usually this is sufficient to claim back expenses but if not, please get in touch with the AVA treasurer Dr Harriet Allen email@example.com to request a individual receipt. Your contact details will be deleted after the meeting if you choose to only attend the meeting, without joining the AVA.
