30th European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP)

Arezzo, Tuscany, Italy, 27-31 August 2007


Announcement of prizes, awards and fellowships

The organizing committee of ECVP 2007 Arezzo, in collaboration with  
the supporting companies and institutions, will grant the following  
prizes, awards and fellowships.

1) ECVP Fellowships. This program, directly issued by the  
organization of the conference (AISV), is aimed to sponsor research  
groups from countries suffering from severe lack of research funds  
(primarily located in Africa, South America and parts of Asia and  
Europe). A substantial fraction of the budget of the meeting will be  
devoted to this program. To apply,  individual scientists should  
complete the Conference Registration (stopping right before the  
online payment). If the registrant's country is in the list of target  
country, an extra form will appear, this implies that your country is  
in the list and you will have to fill the form by answering the  
questions. A selection process based on actual funds availability and  
scientific merit will take place after the deadline for submission  
(March 31st 2007) and the awarded scientists will be notified by the  
end of April 2007. For further questions contact us at info at ecvp2007.org
2) The Perception Lecture fellowship. This is the traditional award  
to the Perception lecturer issued by Pion publisher. This year the  
award will go to Christopher Tyler, PhD, from the Smith-Kettlewell  
Eye Research Institute, San Francisco. The lecture will be taken at  
5,30 PM on August 27th, 2007 in the magnificent  St. Francis church  
of Arezzo.
3) The Rank Lecture fellowship. This fellowship, issued by the Rank  
Foundation for the first time ever at ECVP, will go to the Rank  
lecturer, Prof. Anthony Movshon, New York University. The lecture  
will take place at 6 PM on August 29th at the conference venue.
4) The CRS guest lecurer award. This is a donation from Cambridge  
Research System to a selected symposia speaker, whose lecture will be  
recorded and made available online at the CRS website  
(www.crsltd.com). The recipient will be announced later in the  
conference website.
5) The ECVP 30th Anniversary prize. Four selected 'historic' figures  
of ECVP and of Vision Science will receive this symbolic prize  
appositely created by Unoaerre, the major gold factory in Arezzo. The  
announcement will be made on August 29th, during the series of events  
celebrating the 30th anniversary of the conference.
6) Best graduate student poster awards. Two posters with a graduate  
student as first author, voted by the participants of ECVP 2007, will  
be awarded by a) a cash prize of 250 USD issued by Cambridge Research  
System, and b) by a copy of the two volumes of 'The Visual  
Neurosciences' donated by the MIT Press.
7) Best undergraduate student poster award. One poster with an  
undergraduate student as first author, voted by the participants of
