Colour and shape of faces and their influence on attributions


Abstracts (max length: 250 words) should be submitted by e-mail to Alexa
Ruppertsberg (a.i.ruppertsberg at bradford.ac.uk) by February 10th. Abstracts will
be peer reviewed and should cover previously unreported research on any aspect
of vision. Abstracts must state the title, authors and include addresses.

References should be given in the body of the abstract in full, but without the
title, e.g. (Rayner et al, 2001, Vis Res, 41, 943-954)

Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference booklet.

Deadline for abstract submission: FRIDAY, 10th FEBRUARY 2006

A special issue of Spatial Vision will be published with paper submissions from
this meeting. Authors should therefore indicate their wish to be considered for
a paper when submitting an abstract. Papers will be subjected to a standard peer
review process. Invitations for papers will be made together with the
information about the outcome of the abstract submission.

Deadline for paper submission: FRIDAY, 30th JUNE 2006

1) Abstracts should be appended with a statement of preference for a talk or a
poster and if the authors are interested in a paper submission for the special
issue of Spatial Vision.
2) The e-mail accompanying the abstract should indicate which of the authors
will and will not be attending the meeting.
3) Unless otherwise stated, it will be assumed that the first author will be the
presenting author.

The organizers will try to accommodate preferences for a talk or poster; however
this may not always be possible.

As many of you will know, the AVA has moved to a policy of a one payment, life
membership fee (of 25.00 pounds sterling). One way in which we hope to offset
some of our meeting costs is by introducing the 'premium' category of
registration fee. There is no obligation to pay this fee, and we expect that
most people will pay either the 'student' or 'other' rates as appropriate. But,
we do hope that grant holders might consider paying the premium rate. In all
cases, a receipt will be provided on the day for the fee paid, but this will
not indicate the category.
When you use Paypal for the first time it takes a little time to set things up,
but thereafter is quite quick. We do hope you will find this a convenient way
of paying your registration fee. Alternatively, we still accept cheques, which
should be sent to Alexa Ruppertsberg (made payable to: Applied Vision
Association) at the address below.

Information on how to get to the University of Bradford can be found at:
