We are accepting applicants for diversity travel awards for the 7th Biennial International Perceptual Learning Workshop to be held at Alyeska Resort, August 14 - August 19, 2022 in Alyeska, Alaska, USA (https://alyeskaresort.com). (draft program can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Dqxzbfg-aVsOehi3kdTDo3LY0VAGLX82).

As the only conference dedicated specifically to perceptual learning, the workshop brings together investigators from around the world in a platform that encourages presentation of new unpublished work and critical commentary. We encourage a broad range of approaches to perceptual learning including use of psychophysics, neurophysiology, functional imaging, computational neuroscience, and perceptual rehabilitation, addressing our range of perceptual modalities. These international workshops have been successful in enhancing interactions between junior and senior investigators, providing opportunities for new collaborations and influencing the direction of field.

Travel awards are funded by a grant from the National Eye Institute and are focused on increasing the diversity (broadly defined) of contributors to the workshop. Awards are available for graduate students, postdocs and junior faculty to cover the travel expenses and meeting attendance.

Please apply here: https://forms.gle/EgzM7x57ZkagprWw8

If you have any questions please contact: workshop2022 at perceptuallearning.org<mailto:workshop2022 at perceptuallearning.org>

Applications should include:

1) a brief CV (no more than 3 pages)
2) a brief summary of your current research (up to 1 page)
3) a brief statement of what you seek to gain from the conference and how you would serve the conference goal of increasing diversity in the field of perceptual learning.

Preference will be given to individuals that enhance the diversity of representation in the meeting, and who serve to benefit most from the 5 day program on perceptual learning. Best consideration will be given to applications submitted by April 15.
