AVA Annual Meeting 2007, FRIDAY 20TH APRIL 2007



The AVA Annual Meeting 2007 and AGM will be held in the new Norcroft

Active Vision: asking the right questions about human vision


Abstracts (max length: 250 words) should be submitted by e-mail to Alexa
Ruppertsberg (a.i.ruppertsberg at bradford.ac.uk) by March 2nd.

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 Perception (similar to
AVA-Christmas meeting).

Deadline for abstract submission: FRIDAY, 2nd March 2007

1) Abstracts should be appended with a statement of preference for a
talk or a poster.
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
