Are you doing vision or visual perception research using visual displays remotely or at home?

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has led to the sustained closure of many research laboratories. Many vision and colour researchers have therefore pivoted to running psychophysical and psychological experiments remotely, i.e. via internet platforms, or at home. One of the challenges for these endeavours is that displays will be largely uncalibrated, as laboratory-grade instruments are typically not available. In this webinar, we will explore principles of monitor calibration, and what methods might be used to get aspects of visual displays calibrated in the absence of a laboratory-grade spectrometer or photometer.

We invite abstract submissions for 8-minute talks as part of this webinar. These submissions could be on the following topics (non-exhaustive list):

  *   Display calibration with smartphones or cameras
  *   Psychophysical calibration of displays
  *   Aspects modifying the visual display of stimuli in uncontrolled environments
  *   Display calibration with low-cost spectrometers
  *   Software solutions for display of visual stimuli on the web

To submit, please complete the abstract submission form (https://forms.gle/mySxu15wSG9NJH1N8) by 12 August 2020 (midnight latest time zone on Earth). Contributions will be screened and prioritised and three submissions will be selected for oral presentations.

Who should attend?
Any researchers currently collecting, or planning to collect, data on human vision and visual perception on the internet or 'at home'.

This webinar is organised by the OSA Color Technical Group and the OSA Display Technology Technical Group.

For any questions, please email Manuel Spitschan (manuel.spitschan at psy.ox.ac.uk<mailto:manuel.spitschan at psy.ox.ac.uk>).
