Call for Abstracts


VSS is now accepting abstracts to be considered for poster and talk
presentations at the VSS 2019 Meeting. Abstracts should be submitted through
<http://www.visionsciences.org/myvss/> MyVSS. Each individual may submit
only one abstract and must be the first author. The first author must be a
current VSS member (for 2019) in good standing and must sign up for
membership before submitting. VSS will arrange for alternate means of
presentation in cases where unavoidable visa restrictions prevent the first
author from attending the meeting.

<http://www.visionsciences.org/abstract-submissions/> Abstract Submissions.
To renew your membership, log into your account at

opportunity to update your personal information in your profile (address,
affiliation, etc.). If you are not a current VSS member, you may become a

Accepted abstracts will be published in the meeting program and in the

Decisions will be made by February 4, 2019. Please direct any questions to

Call for Symposia


VSS is currently seeking proposals for symposia to be held during the 2019
VSS Annual Meeting. Four to six symposia will be scheduled, each lasting two


VSS Symposia deal with contemporary research topics in vision research.
Symposia can be organized by content area or by method, but talks within a
symposium should focus on broader conceptual themes than a typical VSS
presentation. There should be at least four but no more than five speakers
within a symposium session, and each talk should be scheduled for between 20
and 30 minutes, including time for discussion. Discussion time can be
scheduled after individual talks and/or at the end of the session.


The symposium organizer must be a 2019 VSS member, but invited speakers need
not be members. All speakers are required to register for the meeting.
Submitting a symposium proposal and/or speaking in a symposium does not
prevent you from submitting an abstract for a talk or poster presentation at
VSS. Complete submission instructions and how to submit a proposal can be
found at  <http://www.visionsciences.org/symposium-submissions/> Symposium
Submissions. The quality of the speakers is important to a symposium, so
scheduled speakers may not be substituted, even by coauthors. By submitting
a symposium proposal, the organizers agree that all speakers will
participate in the symposium and that speakers have not committed to
participate in more than one symposium. 


Symposia will be selected by the VSS Board of Directors on the basis of
scientific merit, timeliness, theoretical innovation and/or breadth,
methodological innovation and/or diversity, and overlap (less being better)
with last year's symposia and with the regular program. Symposia often
benefit from a diversity of perspective and institutional affiliations.
Proposals from young investigators are particularly encouraged.


For more information about submitting a symposium proposal, go to
<http://www.visionsciences.org/symposium-submissions/> Symposium


Proposal Deadline: November 9, 2018 


Decisions will be made by November 27, 2018. Please direct any questions to
<mailto:VSS at visionsciences.org> vss at visionsciences.org.
