OSA Fall Vision Meeting 2012
All talks are in the Class of '62 Auditorium
Thursday (9/13/12) – Welcome Reception
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm—Reception, Staybridge Suites, 1000 Genesee Street
8:00 am - 8:45 am—Breakfast, Registration & Put-up Posters
8:45 am - 9:00 am—Welcome
9:00 am - 11:00 am—Invited Session 1: Interpreting high-resolution images of the living retina
The advent of new in-vivo high resolution imaging technologies has led to exciting new observations about the relationship between structure and function in the human retina. This session will cover new understanding and interpretation being acquired in normal and diseased eyes at resolutions beyond those of conventional instrumentation.
Moderator: Mina Chung, University of Rochester
11:00 am - 11:30 am—Break
11:30 am - 1:00 pm—Contributed Color Session (6 @ 15 minutes each)
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm—Lunch
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm—Poster Session
3:30 pm - 5:30 pm—Invited Session 2: Color and the statistical structure of natural images
It is well accepted that biological visual processing is shaped by the statistical structure of the natural environment. In recent years this broad idea has received increased attention as our understanding of image statistics has improved, and has also led to a more informed approach to computer image analysis. This session will focus on the application of these ideas to the area of color vision, with talks that draw from the study of human vision, the study of image analysis, and the study of color image statistics.
Moderator: David Knill, University of Rochester
6:30 pm—Dinner, Nixon-Peabody
8:00 am - 8:30 am—Breakfast
8:30 am - 10:30 am—Invited Session 3: Dysfunction of the visual system in neurodegenerative conditions
Several neurodegenerative diseases impact visual function. Targeted assessment of the visual system may therefore reveal alterations that contribute uniquely to earlier detection and better understanding of these conditions. This session will explore how structural and functional observations have improved our knowledge of neurodegenerative disease processes, with a focus on multiple sclerosis and optic neuritis.
Moderator: Ari Green, University of California, San Francisco
10:30 am - 11:00 am—Business Meeting
11:00 am - 12:30 pm—Poster Session & Break
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm—Lunch
1:30 pm - 3:30 pm—Invited Session 4: 3D displays and perception
3D technology is being incorporated into movies, televisions and personal electronics. What are the technical issues behind crafting content for a human 3D experience? How does our visual system interpret and respond to images created with 3D technology? Our speakers will explore this topic with an emphasis on the science behind human stereoscopic perception.
Moderator: Laurie Wilcox, York University
3:30 pm - 4:00 pm—Break
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm—Presentation of Tillyer Medal: Introduction by Jay Neitz, University of Washington
