The International Research Group on Colour Vision Deficiencies (IRGCVD)
at its most recent meeting (Ghent, July 5-9, 1997) formally changed its
name to the International Colour Vision Society or ICVS. This
re-baptism serves several purposes, one among them being to silence the
complaint that the former name was simply too long and complicated (even
as an acronym). More importantly as we pass our quarter century
anniversary, we feel that the new name more accurately reflects the
breadth of subjects of interest to the members of our society. While we
retain a fundamental interest in unraveling the complexities of color
vision deficiency, we note that the understanding of all forms of color
vision, normal and abnormal, human and non-human, is pertinent to this
endeavor. The society publishes a quarterly newsletter, Daltoniana and
holds a biennial meeting. Our next meeting will take place July, 1997
in Gottingen, Germany. The proceedings of the most recent meeting are
to be published in a special issue of Vision Research. We welcome new
members. A sample newsletter andfurther information about our society,
membership application and the next meeting can be found at our web
