Staff and students present posters at European Conference on Visual PerceptionMonday 21 September 2015
Posters submitted by students and professors from Liverpool Hope University were showcased at the European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP).
The annual meeting is devoted to the scientific study of vision, in particular visual perception and multisensory processes related to vision. ECVP is one of the largest international conferences in the field, attracting as many as 1,000 participants from across the globe.
Liverpool Hope’s Psychology department submitted five posters, while the department of Mathematics and Computer Science also submitted a poster.
A further two posters were presented by the Psychology department at the satellite meeting Vision Science of Art (VSAC), which was held alongside the ECVP.
The ECVP describes its goal as providing ‘a forum for the presentation and discussion of new developments in our understanding of human, animal and machine vision’.
Dr Letizia Palumbo, Lecturer in Psychology at Hope, created an evening event twinned with the ECVP and VSAC events entitled Illusions Parade.
Designed to create a bridge between science, neuro-aesthetics and art, the event provided a new interactive platform for scientists working in the field of visual illusions and artists interested in perceptual distortions. Scientists, artists and the attendees exchanged knowledge, expertise and curiosity in performing and perceiving experimental as well as artistic representations of illusions.
