The 20th Symposium of the International Colour Vision Society (ICVS) will
take place in the University of Minho, Braga, Portugal, from Friday July
24th to Tuesday July 28th, 2009. 

The meeting will encompass fundamental, applied, and clinical aspects of
research into colour vision, ranging from the molecular to the cognitive. In
addition to the keynote presentation, there will be topical symposia, along
with individual contributions reflecting the diversity of interests of the
members of the ICVS, who include physiologists, psychologists, physicists,
engineers, geneticists, optometrists, ophthalmologists and other related
professionals with interests in colour vision and colour-vision

A social and cultural programme will allow participants to relax and
interact informally between sessions and will include visits to some of the
most beautiful areas of northern Portugal, most notably the Douro valley,
where the grapes for Port wine are grown.
