*32nd Center for Visual Science (CVS) Symposium: “Active Vision”*
*Dates: *June 10-13, 202
*Location: *The University of Rochester, Rochester, NY*
*Website, registration & logistics:*
*Confirmed Speakers & Moderators:*
*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
shaping up 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.
This is the 32nd symposium
<http://www.cvs.rochester.edu/symposium/index.html> of the biennial
series organized by The Center for Visual Science
<http://www.cvs.rochester.edu/index.html> (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 is 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
<http://www.cvs.rochester.edu/symposium/abstracts.html> Deadline for
poster presentation is*March 7, 2020*. Abstract acceptance will be
notified by *March 31, 2020*.
