Early registration deadline is quickly approaching for the 20th Symposium of
the International Colour Vision Society (ICVS) that will take place in the
University of Minho, Braga, Portugal, from Friday July 24th to Tuesday July
28th, 2009.

**Early registration and abstract submission deadline is April 1st!**

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.
