[visionlist] ECVP 2017 in Berlin: Early bird / Party & Night of Light / Child care / TutorialsPosted: May 15, 2017
Dear friends and colleagues,
We are happy to inform you that we have just extended the early bird registration period for the 40th European Conference on Visual Perception – ECVP 2017, taking place in Berlin | Germany, 27–31 August 2017.
The extended deadline for early-bird registration is Saturday, 29 May 2017.
You find the registration form here: http://www.ecvp.org/
Here is some more news:
1. Record number of abstracts
Abstract submission is now closed. We have received a record number of abstracts (>950). The scientific committee is currently busy reviewing them and creating the conference program.
If you have submitted an abstract, be sure to register for the conference and pay your registration fees.
Note: It has been brought to our attention that paying the registration fee before the abstract is accepted can be problematic for some participants if funding is contingent on an active contribution to the conference (i.e., a poster or talk presentation). Be assured that in the event that your abstract is not accepted for presentation, your registration fee can be fully refunded.
2. Contribute to The Night of Light!
At ECVP 2017 in Berlin, the Conference dinner will be a party at one of Berlin’s most original venues, the Kulturbrauerei. It is free of charge to every registered ECVP participant. The party will also feature the Night of Light, a place to exhibit your most stunning vision demos (formerly known as ‘Illusoriamente’, ‘Show time’, ‘Illusion night’, ‘Illusions parade’, and ‘The Illusion’s Night’). If you would like to contribute a demo or an installation, please announce your interest in participation by Monday, 29 May 2017 here:
3. Kids welcome!
We will be offering child care during ECVP 2017, free of charge. If you would like to use this service during the conference, please sign up here by Monday, 12 June 2017:
4. Tutorials — some places still available!
Some of the pre-conference tutorials still have spots available. Sign up here:
See you all in Berlin!
