40th European Conference on

Visual Perception ECVP 2017



Regular symposia feature 5 to 6 talks of 15–20 min each, plus discussion. The goal is to provide a comprehensive and integrative overview of a lively research area. Organizers should aim for a diversity of ideas and people instead of focussing narrowly on single groups or 'schools'. Ideally, individual talks relate to each other and inspire discussion.

Controversy symposia focus on two (or more) alternative or even opposing views on a current research question. They consist of 4 talks that take different stances on the issue, and a panel discussion. The goal of this format is to bring together researchers from different sides of the fence, engage them in discussion, and identify steps that may lead to a resolution of the controversy.

Both types of symposia will have a total length of 2 hours. The symposium’s organizer or a selected speaker will motivate the general framework of the symposium’s topic and will introduce the speakers to the audience.
