VSS is pleased to announce that the 10th Annual Visual Demos Evening at VSS
will be Monday, May 14, 2012, from 7:30 - 10:00 pm at the Waldorf Astoria
Naples (formally known as the Naples Grande). Demo Night is an informal
celebration of the experiential phenomena of vision science, with a diverse
offering of visual demos. 

The Demo Night committee is seeking dramatic, provocative, educational, and
entertaining demonstrations of visual phenomena, new and old. Especially
encouraged is the submission of demonstrations that transcend the bounds of
the tabletop, such as immersive experiences, and also ones that are
"physical," that do not rely on computer graphics. 

VSS and the Waldorf Astoria Naples can provide tables, electrical outlets,
and some wall space and/or screens for projections, and poster boards upon
request. The organizers will help coordinate special needs (e.g., theatrical
lighting). Each presenter will be responsible for bringing and setting up
any other necessary equipment for their own demos, including data projectors
and other displays.

Once again, Demo Night and the Best Illusion of the Year Contest (hosted by
the Neural Correlate Society) will both be held on the same night.

The Best Illusion of the Year Contest will be held from 5:00 to 7:00 at the
Philharmonic Center for the Arts.

The Demo Night dinner will be held at the Waldorf Astoria Naples from 7:00 -
9:00.

Demo Night will be held from 7:30 to 10:00 at the Waldorf Astoria Naples.

Entries in the Best Illusion of the Year Contest are encouraged to also
present at Demo Night.
