*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*.
