Call for Symposia Proposals
VSS Annual Meeting May 9, 2008
VSS seeks proposals for symposia to be held on Friday afternoon, May 9, at
the start of the 2008 VSS Annual Meeting. Up to six symposia will be
scheduled, with up to three parallel programs in each two-hour time slot.
Symposia should deal with contemporary research topics in vision research.
They can be organized along content (e.g. neural basis of object
recognition, attentional mechanisms, etc.) or methodological (e.g.
classification images, fMRI) lines, but should deal with significant
conceptual issues. Talks should focus on broader conceptual themes than a
typical VSS presentation. Individual talks should be no less than twenty
minutes and no more than 30 minutes, including time for discussion. There
should be at least 4 and no more than 6 speakers. Discussion time can be
scheduled according to the organizers discretion (e.g. after individual
talks or concentrated at the end of a session).
The submitter must be a current VSS member, but the speakers are not
required to be VSS members. For complete submission instructions and to
submit your proposal online, go to
Organizers must be sure that all participants are committed to participating
before submitting a proposal. Proposals will be evaluated by the VSS Board
of Directors using a variety of criteria including scientific merit and
timeliness, theoretical innovation and/or breadth, methodological innovation
and/or diversity, and overlap (less being better) with the regular program.
Proposals from young investigators are encouraged.
Deadline: November 1, 2007
Decisions will be made by November 15, 2007. Please direct any questions to
Shauney Wilson (shauneywilson at visionsciences.org).
