Preliminary Notice of Call for Symposia

The purpose of this message is to alert you to the Call for Symposia for the 2018 VSS meeting. Proposals will be accepted beginning October 2 until November 7.

VSS is seeking proposals for symposia to be held during the 2018 VSS Annual Meeting, which begins Friday, May 18, 2018. Four to six symposia will be scheduled, with two parallel programs in each two-hour time slot.

Symposia should deal with contemporary research topics in vision research. Symposia can be organized along the lines of content (e.g., neural bases of object recognition, attentional mechanisms, etc.) or methodology (e.g., classification images, TMS, etc.), but in every case talks within a symposium should focus on broader conceptual themes than a typical VSS presentation. The recommended format is for four or five individual talks. Discussion time can be scheduled according to the organizersโ€™ discretion (e.g., after individual talks, concentrated at the end of a session, or a mixture of the two approaches), and both talk length and how discussion will be organized should be specified as part of the proposal. Other formats will be considered, but proposals for other formats should include a clear rationale. Symposia often benefit from a diversity of perspectives and institutional affiliations. Proposals from young investigators are encouraged.

The symposium organizer must be a current VSS member, but invited speakers are not required to be VSS members. All speakers are required to register for the meeting. Submitting a symposium proposal and/or speaking in a symposium does not prevent you from submitting an abstract for a talk or poster presentation at VSS.

Organizers must ensure that all speakers are committed to participating in the symposium before submitting a proposal, and organizers must also ensure that speakers have not agreed to participate in more than one symposium. If a symposium talk has more than one author, it must be presented by the first author. For each speaker, please provide up to three references to published articles relevant to the proposed talk.

Proposals will be evaluated by the VSS Board of Directors using a variety of criteria including scientific merit, timeliness, theoretical innovation and breadth, methodological innovation, lack of overlap with the regular program, and diversity of the speakers.
