About the ICVS Symposium
The meeting of ICVS encompasses fundamental, applied, and clinical aspects of research into colour vision, ranging from the molecular to the cognitive. In addition to the keynote presentations, there will be topical symposia, along with individual contributions reflecting the diversity of interests of the members of ICVS. These include physiologists, psychologists, physicists, engineers, geneticists, optometrists, ophthalmologists and other related professionals with interests in colour vision and colour vision deficiencies.
In addition to the scientific program, lunches, a welcome reception, a half-day excursion and a banquet will be offered to both attendees and accompanying persons.
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, any of the following:
- Acquired loss of colour vision in diseases of the retina
- Central processing of colour signals
- Colour in occupational environments
- Colour induction and constancy
- Colour cognition
- Colour in the mesopic range
- Colour vision assessment
- Congenital colour vision deficiencies
- Clinical aspects of colour vision
- Ecology of colour vision
- Effects of ageing on colour vision
- Functional imaging and colour vision
- Genetics of colour vision
- Isolation of chromatic mechanisms
- Object-surface properties, material perception, and related topics
- Peripheral chromatic sensitivity
- Physiology of colour vision
- Unique hues
- Variability in colour vision
We propose to hold the following topical sessions. You will have an opportunity to request inclusion on the abstract submission site.
- Colour in Employment
- Melanopsin and colour vision
- Lighting and colour vision
The 2019 Verriest Medal Lecture will be given by Professor Michael Webster (University of Nevada Reno, Nevada). The award was established in 1991 in memory of the founder of the Society, Dr. Guy Verriest, and honours outstanding contributions in the field of colour vision.
