CVR-VISTA Vision Science Summer School, 2018

The Centre for Vision Research <http://cvr.yorku.ca/> (CVR 
<http://cvr.yorku.ca/>) at York University <http://www.yorku.ca> in 
Toronto, Canada offers a one-week, all-expenses-paid undergraduate 
summer school on vision science.  This year's program will be held June 
4-8, 2018.

This year's summer school is being held in cooperation with the Vision: 
Science to Applications <http://vista.info.yorku.ca/>(VISTA) 
<http://vista.info.yorku.ca/>initiative that will dramatically increase 
the number of faculty members and students engaging in vision research 
at York University in the coming years.

The program includes talks by CVR faculty members on current research 
topics in vision science, as well as hands-on experience in CVR 
laboratories. The curriculum reflects the wide range of research areas 
at CVR, which includes research on human visual perception, computer 
vision, machine learning, visual neuroscience, 3D film, immersive 
environments, and visual disorders.

The program accepts undergraduate students who are interested in 
pursuing a career in scientific research. It is intended mainly for 
students who are planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of 
2018 (for entry in fall 2019), and who are interested in investigating 
vision science as an area of research. Citizens of all countries are 
eligible. The application deadline is Mar 1, 2018.

The program covers all transportation costs and provides on-campus 
accommodation and meals.

Application instructions are available on the CVR summer school website 
<http://www.yorku.ca/cvrss/>.  The application deadline is March 1, 
2018, and applicants will be notified of decisions by March 15, 2018. We 
expect to accept between 30 and 40 students.
