The European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP) is the world’s premier transnational conference dedicated to the science of visual perception.
ECVP 2005 in A Coruña, Galicia, Spain promises to be the most exciting ECVP to date, and offers a beautiful and fun-filled locale combined with cutting-edge discoveries in vision research. Participants at the conference present original contributions related to psychology, cognitive and visual neuroscience, and computer vision.
The program includes several exciting invited symposia as well, presented by some of the world’s leading scientists discussing new major discoveries in the field. In addition, ECVP 2005 will hold several special events, including The First Annual Best Visual Illusion of the Year Award, a Pre-Meeting Symposium on Art and The Visual System, and much, much more! Several social events are also planned to help young researchers interact with potential future advisors, and for more senior registrants to discuss new ideas.
Situated on the Atlantic coast of Spain, A Coruña is an ancient and historic city, with the oldest Roman lighthouse in the world. Several famous Spanish people lived in A Coruña, including Picasso, who trained in A Coruña as a teenager before showcasing his first exhibit in town. Today, the city is an interesting Romanesque collection of streets, squares and medieval churches, but also a resort city: its wide and beautiful beaches lie in the heart of the city and draw visitors from all over Europe.
