ECVP 2019 – European Conference on Visual Perception

This year the ECVP will be welcoming DyViTo ESRs to present their findings. There will be oral presentations, posters and a chance to network with peers from different disciplines.

The European Conference on Visual Perception is an annual event, centring on the field of human visual perception. This includes disciplines like Psychology, Neuroscience and Cognitive Sciences. With a strong emphasis on student and young researcher participation the conference, which has been held each year since 1978, happens in a different European location every year.

This year our DyViTo researchers will be joining the conference hosted by KU Leuven.

KU Leuven (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven) is a research university with a strong tradition in perception, dating back to Armand Thiéry (who started the Laboratory of Experimental Psychology in 1892, after obtaining his PhD with Wundt in Leipzig) and Albert Michotte (1881-1965), whose pioneering work on the perception of causality is still highly influential. In the present day, perception and vision-related research is conducted in many disciplines (including psychology, neurosciences, biology, computer vision, computer graphics, light and light technology and sports and rehabilitation), addressing fundamental questions as well as applications.  This broad range will be reflected in the scientific program (12 symposia, talks and poster presentations). In addition, there will be a tutorial program for young researchers, two excellent keynotes, a demo night, and a historical exhibition. The social program includes an opening reception, a conference dinner and a conference party.
