Abstract Submission (3/7/20 deadline):

Organizers: Jude Mitchell, Martina Poletti, and Michele Rucci

Under natural conditions, visual processes unfold in the incessant 
presence of motor behavior, as visually-guided actions contribute to 
shaping the input signals to the retina.  Active vision, the study of 
vision in the context of natural motor behavior, has grown and expanded 
greatly in recent years, in part due to advances in computational power, 
display technology, and tracking of body movements. This symposium will 
focus on the indissoluble bond between vision and action. It will cover 
a broad array of tightly related topics, including: the visual 
consequences of various types of body movements, the role of motor 
activity in extracting and processing visual information, and the 
visuomotor strategies for controlling behaviors such as locomotion, 
reaching, and grasping.  By bringing together a diverse array of 
viewpoints and creative methodological approaches to the study of the 
visual system in action, this symposium aims to uncover common 
principles of visuomotor computation, identify promising research 
directions, disseminate knowledge on recent advances in the field, and 
attract and help forming a new generation of researchers.  A list of 
currently confirmed speakers can be found here. 

This is the 32nd symposium of the biennial series organized by The 
Center for Visual Science (CVS) at the University of Rochester. CVS 
symposia are highly interactive meetings with a group of invited 
speakers and an audience of 100-200 participants. Scientific sessions 
include talks and poster presentations.  Ample time will be given for 
debates of ideas and hypotheses, with sessions specifically dedicated to 
general discussions and a program designed to promote interactions. 
Because of their highly interactive nature, CVS symposia provide great 
opportunities for students and post-doctoral fellows to engage in deep 
discussions with leading scientists in the field.

The Abstract Submission Deadline is March 7, 2020.   Abstract acceptance
will be notified by March 31, 2020.
