Sponsorship Opportunities

The Vision Sciences Society is committed to progress in understanding vision and its relation to cognition, action and the brain. Our primary goal is to host a yearly meeting where both new and established investigators can present and discuss their work.

This year, the Vision Sciences Society’s annual meeting will be held virtually, May 21-26, 2021. As the leading international conference on vision science, VSS is committed to transforming this year’s gathering into a virtual experience designed to bring forth the high-quality research our members have come to expect at VSS.

We expect between 1500 and 2000 VSS members to participate in V-VSS 2021. V-VSS will occur over six days in May and will include live talk sessions, real-time poster sessions using the Gather.Town platform, and many other scientific and social events. All V-VSS will be accessible to VSS members for 90 days after V-VSS 2021. The virtual meeting will enable more attendees from around the world to attend, including those who have traditionally found it challenging to participate in the meeting.
