Dear Colleagues,  [sorry for duplicates]

With the sudden passing of Bela Julesz, professor emeritus of Psychology 
at Rutgers University, on 31 December 2003, the society of researchers 
in visual perception and, more generally, in cognitive science has lost 
one of its heroes. A memorial service is to be held for Bela Julesz at 
Rutgers University. It will serve as a time of remembrance and 
appreciation of Bela's gifts to science and to us all. The service will 
follow the annual Visual Sciences Society meeting that is being held in 
Sarasota, Florida, to make it easier for VSS participants to attend. The 
memorial event will take place on Friday, May 7 2004, from 11 a.m. to 
1:30 p.m. It will start with tributes, reminiscences, and stories by 
people who were close to Bela, and conclude with a reception/lunch at 
the New Brunswick campus of Rutgers University in New Jersey.

We ask you to register for this event, free of charge, at the following 
website:

The website will also contain updated, detailed information about the 
Memorial Service.
