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



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

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