[visionlist] Call for Papers Visual Science of Art Conference (VSAC) 2017 in Berlin

Dear colleagues, 


This is the Call for Papers for the 5th European
Visual Science of Art Conference (VSAC), to be held in Berlin,
Germany, 25–27 August 2017 ( http://ift.tt/2lnm5Mo


The Visual Science of Art Conference (VSAC) focuses on
connecting the communities of visual scientists and artists in order to deepen
our understanding of aesthetic phenomena. The VSAC is an ideal venue to debate
and collaborate on all topics associated with the perception and evaluation of
artworks. Organized as a satellite conference to the ECVP (European
Conference on Visual Perception, http://ift.tt/2k6trU8 ),
the VSAC invites all people that connect visual perception with the arts (e.g.,
empirical, experimental, philosophical, phenomenological, computational
approaches). This year we would also like to invite philosophical proposals
(also X-phi) that focus on empirical approaches to the visual arts.


Presentation types


– Oral Presentations: 15-20 minutes plus Q&A (20
min slots)

 -Posters (2 extended poster sessions, A0
portrait format)


Deadline for abstract submission: Sunday, 9 April

Authors will be informed about the abstract selection
in May 2017.


Please submit an abstract of no more than 250 words—it
can also be accompanied by an additional one-page PDF illustrating the method
used, showing diagrams and graphs, etc. Submissions are refereed and selected
on the basis of quality and relevance to the field of empirical aesthetics,
visual art, philosophy of visual art, psychology, and cognitive sciences. Note
that while each person can be listed as an author on several abstracts, you may
only submit one abstract as a first author. All submissions will be considered
for oral or poster presentation.


Abstracts can be submitted here: http://ift.tt/2lnnoex

Please note that abstract submission for the VSAC will
be separate from the ECVP, but that VSAC and ECVP use the same registration
system (you will just select VSAC as one additional option in the registration
process). To register, please go to the ECVP’s
registration page. 


Please submit any inquiries that cannot be answered by
the homepage to  info@vsac2017.org
