The Systems Vision Science Symposium
The Systems Vision Science Symposium takes place in-person from Tuesday, August 22 to Thursday, August 24, 2023 in Tuebingen, Germany, at the end of the Systems Vision Science Summer School –before the European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP, August 27 to August 31, 2023).
Invited speakers of the Systems Vision Science Summer School and Symposium include: Assaf Breska, Peter Dayan, Andrea van Doorn, Wolfgang Einhäuser-Treyer, Karl Gegenfurtner, Ziad Hafed, Tadashi Isa, Jan Koenderink, Kristine Krug, Hanspeter Mallot, Laurence Maloney, Pascal Mamassian, Antje Nuthmann, Daniel Osorio, Andrew Parker, Jenny Read, Alexander Schütz, Manuel Spitschan, Kristina Visscher, Li Zhaoping.
You will have the opportunity to present and discuss your research with them.
This year’s keynote speaker is Marty Sereno,
August 22, 2023
Submission of contributions
We invite you to submit poster contributions for presentation on topics of Systems Vision Science. This discipline combines computational, behavioral, and neuroscience methods to discover functions and algorithms for vision in various brain regions and their implementations in neural circuits. Presentation topics by the invited speakers will be
⇒ Topics in Systems Vision Science
⇒ The power of two: New perspectives on binocular vision
⇒ Central versus peripheral vision
Contributions in form of posters to any of these topics will be encouraged. To contribute, submit an abstract until
Sunday, April 30, 2023 Monday, May 15, 2023 (extended). Information regarding acceptance is expected to be communicated by us by May 25, 2023, latest.
In order to submit a contribution, please use this form and send it, saved as pdf and named “svs_symposium_Last Name_First Name”, to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will get a confirmation e-mail after receipt of your submission – if you don’t get a message of receipt within a day, please contact us.
Submissions will be considered on the basis of their fit with the symposium program and topics.
All posters should be presented on one page and in “portrait” orientation. To maximize exchanges during the symposium, the posters will be displayed throughout the symposium, which includes five poster sessions (two daytime sessions and three evening sessions), in a venue next to the lecture hall and coffee breaks to give enough time for discussions, networking and knowledge exchange.
Anyone who submits an abstract agrees to have the presentation in-person in Tuebingen, Germany.
Participation in the symposium with or without contribution
Non-presenters are also invited to register and enjoy all benefits of the symposium until venue capacity of 100 people (including invited speakers and summer school participants) is reached. Priority will be given to people submitting a contribution.
Submitting a contribution will no longer be possible after
April 30, 2023 May 15, 2023 (extended), but registration without contribution is open until capacity or deadline for organization is reached.
For registration without contribution please use this form and send it, saved as pdf and named “svs_symposium_Last Name_First Name”, to email@example.com. You will get a confirmation e-mail after receipt of your submission – if you don’t get a message of receipt within a day, please contact us.
