The Scottish Vision Group holds a 2-day (Friday afternoon - Sunday lunchtime) conference that attracts vision scientists from Scotland, the UK, the continent and beyond. Our aim is to provide an intimate setting for a small group to share scientific ideas and results.
The invited speaker for this year’s conference will be Dr. Mark Ernst (Ulm University). The invited talk is preceded by a round table discussion on the theme “3D perception” which will be led by Dr. Fulvio Domini (Brown University) and Dr. Justin Ales (University of St. Andrews). The round-table discussion and invited talk will be on Friday afternoon. The following days (Saturday and half-day Sunday) will contain a series of talk sessions on various research topics in vision science. There are no poster sessions. The abstracts from the meeting will be published in iPerception. We usually fit in a short after-lunch hike on Saturday in the area nearby.
The cost of the conference will depend on whether you are staying in a single room or sharing. The cost for the full conference including delegate fees (based on lodging, breakfast, lunch and dinner, for 2 nights) is expected to be around £200 per person (single room) and £170 per person (sharing a twin room). This may change slightly based on number of delegates and confirmation of sponsorship. There are special rates for non-participating attendees (partners, spouses and children) that will not include the delegate fees. Space is limited so please indicate your interest to attend, and the type of room you would like, as soon as possible!
