OSA Fall Vision Meeting 2010
Since 2001, the OSA Fall Vision Meeting has grown as a high-quality, low-cost conference focused on all aspects of the visual system. In even years, the conference is held in Rochester with the generous assistance of the University of Rochester and the Center for Visual Science.
This year's meeting includes invited sessions on advances in retinal imaging, animal color vision, the language and cognition of color, contrast gain control mechanisms, seeing motion in three dimensions and ocular accommodation. There will also be two sessions of contributed talks and posters.
During this year's meeting we will also present the 2010 Tillyer Award to Professor Stephen Burns from Indiana University in recognition of his longstanding service to vision science. The Tillyer Award was established in 1953 through an endowment from the American Optical Co. It is presented not more than once every two years to a person who has performed distinguished work in the field of vision, including (but not limited to) the optics, physiology, anatomy or psychology of the visual system. There will be a lecture by Steve followed by a banquet in his honor.
