About the ICVS Symposium

The meeting of ICVS encompasses fundamental, applied, and clinical
aspects of research into colour vision, ranging from the molecular to
the cognitive. In addition to the keynote presentations, there will be
topical symposia, along with individual contributions reflecting the
diversity of interests of the members of ICVS. These include
physiologists, psychologists, physicists, engineers, geneticists,
optometrists, ophthalmologists and other related professionals with
interests in colour vision and colour vision deficiencies.

In addition to the scientific program, lunches, a welcome reception, a
half-day excursion and a banquet will be offered to both attendees and
accompanying persons.

Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, any of the
*    Acquired loss of colour vision in diseases of the retina
*    Central processing of colour signals
*    Colour in occupational environments
*    Colour induction and constancy
*    Colour cognition
*    Colour in the mesopic range
*    Colour vision assessment
*    Congenital colour vision deficiencies
