After a one-year postponement, we are pleased to announce a call for abstracts for the 26th Symposium of the International Colour Vision Society (www.icvs2022.org). The meeting will take place in Heraklion, Greece, from July 1st to July 5th, 2022. The conference will offer invited talks, oral and poster presentations, and social and cultural events to promote networking. At the moment, we are concentrating our efforts on an in-person event. However, we are closely monitoring the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we will make any necessary adjustments if needed.

In the upcoming meeting, the Society will honor Professor Paul Martin (University of Sydney, Australia) with the Verriest Medal for his work on early visual processing in primates. We are also pleased to announce a line-up of distinguished Invited Speakers that includes Professor Karl Gegenfurtner (Giessen University, Germany), Dr. Stella Katsarou (Hellenic Ministry of Culture, Greece), and Dr. Sophia Sotiropoulou (Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas, Greece).

The International Colour Vision Society meetings bring together physiologists, psychologists, physicists, geneticists, optometrists, ophthalmologists, and visual scientists who have a research interest in the many aspects of colour vision and colour vision deficiencies.

We invite you to submit an abstract in any of the following topics: Acquired deficiencies of colour vision, chromatic mechanisms, colour cognition, colour in occupational environments, colour induction and constancy, colour in mesopic conditions, colour naming, colour vision assessment, comparative colour vision, congenital colour vision deficiencies, digital reproduction of colour information, ecology of colour vision, effects of aging on colour vision, electrophysiology of colour processing, functional imaging and colour vision, genetics of colour vision, object-surface properties, material perception, peripheral colour vision, physiology of colour vision, unique hues, variability in colour vision. Other topics of interest to the Society are, of course, welcome.

Abstract submission opened on January 10th, 2022, and will remain open until March 15th, 2022. Acceptance notifications will be sent on April 15th, 2022. The conference's website (www.icvs2022.org) is updated regularly and offers information about invited speakers, travel, hotel accommodation, abstract submission, registration etc.
