The ninth annual workshop on Computational and Mathematical Models in Vision (MODVIS), will be held May 13-15, 2020, at the Tradewinds Resort in St. Pete Beach, Florida, USA, immediately preceding the annual meeting of the Vision Sciences Society (VSS).  The program consists of contributed oral presentations, which are longer in length than a standard VSS talk, allowing presenters to present more technical details concerning their models.  As the “workshop” title implies, we welcome presentations of work-in-process.  We aim to provide a venue for interactive discussion of technical issues in a relatively small, informal setting.

We particularly want to encourage junior scientists, students and post-docs to consider participating in MODVIS. Models are of central importance for our understanding of visual perception. You do not need to present modelling work yourself – and basic questions (encouraged during the presentations when clarification is needed) are helpful to everyone.  You may find yourself inspired by the models that other people are presenting!  MODVIS is a single-track conference with a small crowd, and so provides a great opportunity to have in-depth discussions about those theoretical aspects of vision that you always wanted to know more about.

MODVIS submissions consist of a 1-page PDF extended abstract that can include equations, figures and images in addition to text.  The submission site is now open; follow the ‘Abstract Submission’ link from the workshop web site at https://www.purdue.edu/conferences/events/modvis/  (past visitors should note that the site has moved).  The submission deadline will be March 1st, 2020, which is after VSS has announced their decisions on abstract submissions.  Post-deadline submissions will be considered only if slots are available.

Hope to see you there – Happy modelling!
