A four day workshop offered by The Company of Biologists looks at how animals acquire and respond to visual information in nature
Increasing numbers of scientists from disparate fields incorporate visual ecology into their research, and new techniques are frequently introduced which make the study of vision accessible even to non-experts.
While exciting, this growth can make it challenging both to stay informed of developments in other sub-fields and to maintain a working understanding of a variety of new techniques. Therefore, through this workshop, The Company of Biologists intend to unite researchers from across the globe to bridge concepts and practices in the study of vision.
The 2020 Vision workshop will combine:
- Research lectures by leading researchers in various fields of vision, which will summarize and showcase the state of the field
- Tutorials by experts in various techniques and methods, allowing for group discussion and collaboration
- Contributed talks by promising early career researchers, highlighting new work and fresh perspectives in the field
Who is this event for?
This workshop will offer rare opportunities to bring together both experts and early-career researchers in specific fields of biology.
The emphasis on diverse representation and international collaboration by these workshops supports scientific communication on a global scale.
There are 8 funded places for early-career researchers to attend this workshop along with the 22 speakers. The application deadline is 13th December 2019. For application details, please visit The Company of Biologists website
