York CVR Vision Science Summer School

The Centre for Vision Research at York University in Toronto is  
pleased to announce a one-week, all-expense-paid undergraduate summer  
school on the topic of vision science.  The program will run May  
20-26, 2007.

The program includes talks and demonstrations by CVR faculty on  
current research topics in vision science, as well as hands-on  
projects in CVR laboratories.  The curriculum reflects the wide range  
of active research areas at CVR, which includes basic research on  
vision in humans, animals, and machines, as well as applied topics  
such as virtual reality and visual perception in low-gravity  
environments.  The program will accept 20 undergraduate students who  
are interested in pursuing a career in scientific research.

The program provides on-campus accommodations, breakfast and lunch  
each day, a closing banquet, and reimbursement for transportation costs.

Speakers include James Elder, Mazyar Fallah, Laurence Harris, Denise  
Henriques, Michael Jenkin, Richard Murray, David Regan, Jennifer  
Steeves, Laurie Wilcox, Hugh Wilson, and others.

For further information, see the summer school website, including the  
lecture schedule, at www.cvr.yorku.ca/summer, or write to Jennifer  
Steeves (steeves at yorku.ca).

To apply, send one reference letter, a transcript (unofficial  
transcripts are fine), and a statement of up to 150 words explaining  
why you would like to participate in the program.  Applications may  
be sent by email to Richard Murray (rfm at yorku.ca), or by regular mail  
to Richard Murray, Centre for Vision Research, York University, 4700  
Keele Street, CSEB 0009, Toronto, M3J 1P3.  The application deadline  
is March 15, and applicants will be notified of decisions by April 1.

This program is funded by a training grant from the Canadian  
Institutes of Health Research and by York University.
