The 30th European Conference on Visual Perception, ECVP 2007, will

in Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy.

ECVP welcomes contributions on all topics of visual and perceptual  
sciences. Abstract (max length 170 words) will be published in a  
special issue of Perception. In order to submit an abstract,  
participants should complete the Conference Registration from the  
website and proceed to payment, via a secure Credit Card system  
(accepting Visa and Mastercard) provided and guaranteed by the  
official bank of the conference. If unable to use a credit card,  
contact the organization at info at ecvp2007.org for alternative ways.

The deadline for submitting an abstract is March 31st, 2007. No  
further extension will be granted.

Free communications will be either 12+3 minutes oral presentations in  
parallel sessions, or posters.

Six symposia (click for details) and satellite events on topics of  
particular interest will take place before, during and possibly after  
the core conference.

The conference will begin in the afternoon of August 27th with the  
Perception lecture, the traditional plenary lecture. This year's  
Perception lecture will be delivered by Christopher Tyler (Smith- 
Kettlewell, San Francisco, USA) in St. Francis's church, home of the  
famous Renaissance frescoes “The Legend of the True Cross” by Piero  
della Francesca. An opening Ceremony and Banquet will follow in the  
wonderful Piazza Grande, the core of the historic old town, depicted  
on the home page of the conference website.

The remainder of the conference will be held at the Centro Affari e  
Convegni of Arezzo. On Wednesday August 29th, a series of scientific  
and social events will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ECVP,  
including the 1st Rank Lecture to be held by Anthony Movshon (New  
York University, New York, USA). On that evening a traditional,  
Medieval Dinner will be organized in one of the historic squares of  
the city. Reservations for the dinner are available online.

A Fellowship Program has established to encourage participation of  
research groups from Africa, South America and some parts of Asia.

Arezzo and its province feature many tourist attractions, from art to  
nature, from fine wines and traditional Tuscan tourism, to fashion  
and gold shopping outlets (Arezzo is one of the world capitals for  
gold jewelry and for fashion brands). In the weekend following the  
conference two special events will take place in town, the Saracen  
Joust (September 2nd), a traditional contest with knights and lances,  
and the Antique Fair Market, the biggest antique fair in Italy (Sept.  
1st & 2nd). Moreover, half- and full-day trips, kitchen classes and  
wine tastings will be available from the desk of our official tour  
operator, Colori Toscani.

Last, but not least, we strongly advice that once you have registered  
to the conference you quickly make your hotel reservation. Tuscany  
and the Arezzo area get sold out for that period of the year. We have  
allotted sever hotel rooms at discounted prices that you can book  
directly from our website, but consider that many of these rooms have  
already been reserved by colleagues already registered to the  
conference. In the website you will also find a shortcut for  
reserving special accommodations such as farm houses, bed &  
breakfasts, villas and the youth hostel.
