AVA Annual Meeting 2006

AVA Annual Meeting 2006, TUESDAY 4TH APRIL 2006

The AVA Annual Meeting and AGM will be held in the John Stanley Bell Lecture Theatre (talks) and D4-Foyer (registration, posters and drinks reception), on D-floor of the Richmond Building at the University of Bradford on Tuesday 4th April 2006.

The G B Burton Memorial lecture will be given by
Prof. David Perrett (University of St. Andrews):
Colour and shape of faces and their influence on attributions


Abstracts (max length: 250 words) should be submitted by e-mail to Alexa Ruppertsberg ( by February 10th. Abstracts will be peer reviewed and should cover previously unreported research on any aspect of vision. Abstracts must state the title, authors and include addresses.

References should be given in the body of the abstract in full, but without the title, e.g. (Rayner et al, 2001, Vis Res, 41, 943-954)

Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference booklet.

Deadline for abstract submission: FRIDAY, 10th FEBRUARY 2006

A special issue of Spatial Vision will be published with paper submissions from this meeting. Authors should therefore indicate their wish to be considered for a paper when submitting an abstract. Papers will be subjected to a standard peer review process. Invitations for papers will be made together with the information about the outcome of the abstract submission.

Deadline for paper submission: FRIDAY, 30th JUNE 2006

1) Abstracts should be appended with a statement of preference for a talk or a poster and if the authors are interested in a paper submission for the special issue of Spatial Vision.
2) The e-mail accompanying the abstract should indicate which of the authors will and will not be attending the meeting.
3) Unless otherwise stated, it will be assumed that the first author will be the presenting author.

The organizers will try to accommodate preferences for a talk or poster; however this may not always be possible.


Registration fees should be paid in advance at the registration rate shown below using PayPal on our website:

If needs be, cash payment will be accepted on the door, but credit card facilities will not be available.

Member registration @ £25
Non-member registration @ £35
Membership plus registration special offer @ £45
Student member registration @ £10
Student non-member registration @ £20
Membership plus student registration special offer @ £30
Optional registration payment for grant-holders @ £80 (includes membership, if not already a member)

As many of you will know, the AVA has moved to a policy of a one payment, life membership fee (of 25.00 pounds sterling). One way in which we hope to offset some of our meeting costs is by introducing the 'premium' category of registration fee. There is no obligation to pay this fee, and we expect that most people will pay either the 'student' or 'other' rates as appropriate. But, we do hope that grant holders might consider paying the premium rate. In all cases, a receipt will be provided on the day for the fee paid, but this will not indicate the category.
When you use Paypal for the first time it takes a little time to set things up, but thereafter is quite quick. We do hope you will find this a convenient way of paying your registration fee. Alternatively, we still accept cheques, which should be sent to Alexa Ruppertsberg (made payable to: Applied Vision Association) at the address below.
