York CVR Vision Science Summer School
The Centre for Vision Research (CVR) at York University offers a one-
week, all-expenses-paid undergraduate summer school on the topic of
vision science. This year's program will be held from May 31 to June
The program includes talks by CVR faculty members on current research
topics in vision science, as well as hands-on projects in CVR
laboratories. The curriculum reflects the wide range of research
areas at CVR, which includes basic research on vision in humans and
animals, covering both neuroscience and behaviour, as well as applied
topics such as computer vision, virtual reality, visual perception in
low-gravity environments, and vision in clinical populations. For an
idea of the topics to be covered, see last year's schedule at www.yorku.ca/cvrss/schedule2008.pdf
The program will accept 24 undergraduate students who are interested
in pursuing a career in scientific research. It is intended mainly
for students who are planning to apply to graduate school in the fall
of 2009, and who are interested in investigating vision science as a
possible area of research. Both Canadian and international students
are encouraged to apply.
The program provides on-campus accommodations, breakfast and lunch
each day, a closing banquet, and reimbursement for transportation costs.
Application instructions are available on the summer school website, www.yorku.ca/cvrss
. The application deadline is February 1, 2009, and applicants will
be notified of decisions by March 1, 2009.

This program is funded by NSERC and York University.
