Call for participation: Joint Scottish Vision Group and AVA Conference
Conference Date: April 8-10, 2016
Deadline for abstracts/registration: TBA 17:00 GMT
You are cordially invited to a joint Scottish Vision Group and Applied Vision Association (AVA) meeting at Peebles Hydro in 2016!
Over the last fifteen years The Scottish Vision Group (SVG) has met once a year somewhere in Scotland each spring for a weekend conference to share ideas, results and interactions on research on Visual Perception and Vision Science. This year, we are happy to announce that our meeting will be held jointly with the AVA’s spring meeting. The plan is to have a residential meeting as is typical of the SVG, with the first keynote on Friday evening followed by dinner, then a full day on Saturday, and Sunday until early afternoon, with posters as well as the talks in order to accommodate all the attendees from both the AVA and the SVG.
Peebles is in the Scottish Borders, which would allow for driving up from the majority of areas of Scotland and from north/central England. It is also accessible from Edinburgh with a highly regular 45 minute bus, and Edinburgh is a major transport hub well connected by planes and trains.The venue is the recently renovated Peebles Hydro hotel. The hotel is large (120 rooms) and frequently hosts conferences, with many spacious meeting spaces available. The hotel has a pool, leisure facilities and there are also many walks in nearby woodland or along the river Tweed. The elevated position of the hotel gives excellent views. Thus it will provide a nice environment not just for the conference, but also for any accompanying family members.
Further details, including the invited speakers and the full conference price for single and double room accomodation will be announced in October.
