The 30th edition of the European Conference on Visual Perception  
(ECVP) will take place in Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy, from August 27th to  
August 31st 2007.

The conference has a very wide scope, spanning all the sub-fields of  
Vision Science and its related disciplines. Traditionally, within the  
regular program ECVP features a number of symposia where specific  
topics of particular relevance are discussed by leading experts  
invited by the symposium organizer.  Additional information can be  
found in www.ecvp2007.org.

For ECVP 2007, we decided to limit the number of symposia relative to  
the latest editions, and to select among proposals based on  
scientific and organizative criteria. We prefer topics that would not  
overlap with regular sessions of the meeting, although any idea is  
Symposia will tipically last for two hours, ideally fragmented in 10  
minutes of introduction by the organizer, one 30' talk by a keynote  
speaker,  four 15’ talks and 20 minutes for final discussion.

Cambridge Research System, sponsor of the Conference, will provide  
partial financial support to one selected keynote speaker according  
to a number of criteria including the overall scientific assessment  
of the symposium, based on the review of the Scientific Committee.

The 1st stage submission should include:

1. The organizer's address with affiliation, email and phone number.

2. A draft of the proposed symposium program with a title. It should  
clearly state the motivation of the proposed symposium (max 250 words).

3. A list of speakers with mention of whether they were contacted,  
accepted, etc.

DEADLINE FOR 1st STAGE SUBMISSION:  November 30th 2006

The Scientific Committee will assess each proposal and will rank them  
in three categories, Accepted, Queue, Rejected. In order for an  
Accepted symposium to be actually taken at ECVP 2007,  within 3 weeks  
from the comunication of acceptance we need to obtain the following  
information for the 2nd stage submission:

- Summary of symposium (160 words) for use in printed material.
- List of agreed speakers, affiliations, email and mailing addresses

- Temporal structure of the symposium with exact sequence of talks.  
Include time for discussion and questions.

- Abstract of each individual talk (160 words).

- Special requests (audio-video, etc.)

All the accepted symposia missing this deadline will be replaced by  
proposals in the Queue status.

  1st stage proposals should be submitted by email to  
stefano at ecvp2007.org.

  Thanks for your attention,

                                     ci vediamo ad Arezzo!
