Frontiers in Optics - the Optical Society of America's Annual meeting, has
extended the submission deadline for posters only until June 30, 2017 (12
EDT/16:00 GMT).

FIO will take place in Washington DC (Technical conference: Sept. 17th to
the 21st, Exhibition 19-20th).  More info can be found here:
http://www.frontiersinoptics.com/home/ .The subcommittee on Vision and
Color is comprised of Jeff Mulligan (Nasa), Marina Zannoli (Oculus
Research), and myself, Gabriel Diaz.

Please note the submission categories below, and consider sending in your
poster for presentation

*FiO 7: Vision and Color​ Subsections​*

7.1 Mixed/Virtual Reality: Novel Challenges for Vision Science

Virtual and mixed reality head-mounted displays introduce novel challenges
for vision science and display engineering. These new technologies have
sparked renewed interest for known scientific questions (e.g.
perceptuo-motor recalibration, depth distortions, simulator sickness, and
visual fatigue due to the vergence-accommodation conflict). In addition,
they also open new avenues of research to develop novel ways to deliver
rich sensory information to active observers (e.g. light fields,
holographic displays). Submissions are encouraged that identify/improve
understanding of perceptual issues, and/or propose novel solutions based on
engineering, computational imaging, and vision science.

7.2 Gaze Behavior in Computationally Generated or Sensed Environments
The ability to incorporate eye tracking into contexts involving
computationally generated (i.e. virtual or augmented reality) or digitally
reconstructed environments (e.g. as through the use photogrammetry,
structure from motion, or simultaneous localization and mapping) presents
new opportunities of application and in methodology. Submissions are
encouraged that present novel applications, algorithms, or findings,
related to eye tracking in computationally generated or sensed environments.

7.3 Visual factors in Driving
As the modern vehicle transitions towards increasingly autonomous control,
considerations related to the role of the human are rapidly changing. In
addition to existing concerns related to navigation and visibility during
continuous control, new questions have arisen related to visual attention,
and cognitive/visual distraction when given intermittent control of an
otherwise autonomous vehicle. We encourage submissions relating to visual
factors while driving, including but not limited investigations of visual
attention, distraction, and upon the effectiveness of visual aids intended
to mitigate these concerns (e.g. heads-up displays).

7.4 General Topics in Vision
This subtopic encompasses all applications of optics and photonics to
basic, applied, and clinical vision science that do not fit the above three
specific subtopics. Submissions will be evaluated according to their appeal
to the broader OSA community, their relevance to the study of human vision,
their relevance to related industries, and to submissions that relate to
one or more of the conferences four themes: automotive, optics in
computing, virtual reality and augmented reality, and nanophotonics and
