    ARVO SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP (SIG) MEETING ANNOUNCEMENT

    This year, the Low Vision Research Group (LVRG) is organizing its first SIG
    meeting at ARVO. The aim of this SIG meeting is to increase interest in
    low-vision research among vision scientists who are not currently working in
    areas related to low vision.

    The primary goal of this meeting is to attract both basic and applied vision
    scientists to apply their knowledge in areas such as visual perception,
    sensory psychophysics and human factors to develop new research programs
    related to low vision. Funding opportunities available to low-vision
    related research programs may be discussed.

    If you are interested in exploring the opportunity to engage in low-vision
    research, or if you know of someone who may be interested, please join us
    for a discussion at our SIG meeting.
