Demo Night Proposals Now Accepted

 

VSS is pleased to announce that the 17th Annual Visual Demos Evening at VSS
will be held on Monday, May 20, 2019, from 6:00 - 10:00 pm at the TradeWinds
Island Resorts, St. Pete Beach. Demo Night is a celebration of vision
science featuring demonstrations of visual phenomena, both old and new. Join
us for a Demo Night Beach BBQ from 6:00 - 8:00 pm, followed by demos inside
the Island Ballroom from 7:00 - 10:00 pm. 

 

The Demo Night committee is seeking submissions of particularly dramatic,
provocative, educational, and entertaining demonstrations of visual
phenomena. There is no requirement that the demos be novel. Submissions that
highlight classic effects are welcome. We encourage submissions of
large-scale demonstrations that transcend the bounds of the tabletop, such
as immersive experiences and also ones that are "physical" and do not rely
on computer graphics. 

 

VSS and the TradeWinds Island Resorts can provide tables, electrical
outlets, some wall space and/or screens for projections, and poster boards
upon request. The organizers will help coordinate special needs (e.g.,
theatrical lighting) on a case-by-case basis. Each presenter will be
responsible for bringing and setting up any other necessary equipment for
their own demos, including data projectors and other displays. 

 

If you have a demo that you would like to present for Demo Night, please
fill out the submission form located on the
