MINNESOTA CONFERENCE ON VISION FOR REACH AND GRASP
University of Minnesota
Oct. 2-4, 1997
This two-and-a-half day conference will draw together leading
scientists in the area of vision and motor control with special
focus on the challenging problem of vision for reach and grasp
movements. Speakers (listed below) have been invited who address
this topic from the perspectives of behavior, computational
theory, and neuroscience. The conference will also feature
presentations of submitted posters.
We invite you to attend this conference and to consider
presenting a poster on the general topic of vision and motor
