The 40th European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP) took place in Berlin (Germany), from August 27th to 31st, 2017. With about 1200 fellow vision scientists coming to the Hauptstadt, this has been the biggest ECVP yet. As organizers of this meeting, we were impressed by the large number of contributions that allowed us to put together an amazing program. In three parallel tracks and across four days, we hosted over 200 talks in 12 symposia and 24 talk sessions, and more than 750 posters in 7 poster sessions. We also consider ourselves lucky that we could win Nava Rubin and Shin’ya Nishida for inspiring Perception and Rank Prize lectures, respectively. In addition, we used the opportunity to create a new format that we hope will catch on in the years to come — the Keynote Dialogue, in which two speakers present their opposing views on a fundamental question in vision science. This year, we enjoyed a stimulating and entertaining session in which Brian Scholl and Merav Ahissar discussed the question “Does cognition penetrate perception?”
In this abstract band, you will find the summary of each of these contributions. We hope that the ECVP 2017 in Berlin stays with you for a long time. We certainly keep a fond memory of this meeting.
