Dear colleagues, 

This is the 2nd Call for Papers for the 5th Visual Science of Art Conference
(VSAC), to be held in Berlin, Germany, Germany, 25–27 August 2017.
Conference Venue: Berlin School of Mind and Brain, Humboldt-Universität zu

---please note some updates below---

The Visual Science of Art Conference (VSAC) focuses on connecting the
communities of visual scientists and artists in order to deepen our
understanding of aesthetic phenomena. The VSAC is an ideal venue to debate
and collaborate on all topics associated with the perception and evaluation
of artworks. Organized as a satellite conference to the ECVP (European
Conference on Visual Perception, http://www.ecvp.org/2017/ ), the VSAC
invites all people that connect visual perception with the arts (e.g.,
empirical, experimental, philosophical, phenomenological, computational
approaches). This year we would also like to invite philosophical proposals
(also X-phi) that focus on empirical approaches to the visual arts.

Presentation types

- Oral Presentations: 15-20 minutes plus Q&A (20 min slots)
- Posters (2 extended poster sessions, A0 portrait format)

EXTENDED Deadline for abstract submission: SUNDAY, 16 April 2017.
Authors will be informed about the abstract selection in May 2017

(http://www.brill.com/publications/journals/art-perception) **

Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words—it can also be
accompanied by an additional one-page PDF illustrating the method used,
showing diagrams and graphs, etc. Submissions are refereed and selected on
the basis of quality and relevance to the field of empirical aesthetics,
visual art, philosophy of visual art, psychology, and cognitive sciences.
Note that while each person can be listed as an author on several abstracts,
you may only submit one abstract as a first author. All submissions will be
considered for oral or poster presentation.

Abstracts can be submitted here:
See https://www.vsac2017.org/  for more information on registration and

Please note that abstract submission for the VSAC will be separate from the
ECVP, but that VSAC and ECVP use the same registration system (you will just
select VSAC as one additional option in the registration process). To
register, please go to the ECVP’s registration page. (Members of the "Berlin
School of Mind and Brain" and Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin can register
directly under mb-einstein at hu-berlin.de free of charge)

Please submit any inquiries that cannot be answered by the homepage to
info at vsac2017.org 
We look forward to numerous and interesting contributions!
