Systems Vision Science Virtual Summer School & Symposium: 

June 19th - July 12th, 2024




Applications are invited for a virtual edition
chool-symposium-2024/>  of the Systems Vision Science Summer School and
Symposium that took place in Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics
in Tuebingen, Germany in August 2023 <https://summerschool.lizhaoping.org/>

This year, the virtual edition enables students to attend from afar by
formal lectures via Zoom and informal and social communications via a Slack

Systems Vision Science combines computational, behavioral, and neuroscience
methods to discover functions and algorithms for vision in various brain

and their implementations in neural circuits. This summer school is designed
for everyone interested in gaining a systems level understanding of
biological vision.  

We plan a coherent, graduate-level, syllabus on the integration of
experimental data with theory and models. The syllabus content will be very
similar to the edition in 2023,

the learning format, the delivery, and social interactions will be adjusted
to suit the virtual format.

Experience or knowledge in (A) computational methods, (B) visual
psychophysics, and (C) vision neuroscience, is not required. 

However, experience in at least one of (A), (B), and (C), and a readiness to
learn, is expected.

The Summer School will be followed by a Systems Vision Science Virtual
Symposium on July 12th. All admitted summer school students will be invited
to attend this symposium 

and are encouraged to submit for a presentation at the symposium. The
symposium will also feature two invited keynote presentations.

A certificate of completion of the summer school course will be provided
after the student's successful completion of the summer school.
