The Third Annual Vision Research Conference ‘: Perceptual organization and
dysfunction’ will take place 7-8 May 1999, Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA as a
satellite to the 1998 meeting of ARVO. The conference is co-sponsored by
Vision Research / Elsevier Science and ARVO.

The scope of the conference is reflected in the following sessions:
Pre-attentive mechanisms in perceptual organization; Attentive mechanisms in
visual perception; Object-based attention; Attentive vision and eye
movements; Attention and visual awareness; Dysfunction of perceptual

Leading experts will present the most recent concepts and data on the themes
of the conference. The aim is to stimulate discussion and hence further
research, which will eventually help to unravel the (neuronal) mechanisms
underlying perceptual organization. As such, the two-day program should
appeal to a mixed audience of psychophysiologists, neurophysiologists,
neuropsychologists, cognitive scientists and clinical researchers in vision.

Non-speaker participants may present their data in poster sessions. The
deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 January 1999.
