European Conference on Visual Perception

The European Conference on Visual Perception (ECVP) is an annual meeting devoted to scientific study of human visual perception. ECVP has been held each year since 1978, and attracts a wide variety of participants from such fields as Psychology, Neuroscience and Cognitive Science. To encourage the widest possible participation, particularly among students, the meeting is held in a different European location each year.

Future Meetings

Current proposals are for the ECVP 2022 to be held in Nijmegen, The Netherlands, from Sunday 28 August to Thursday 1 September, and in 2023 on Paphos, organized by Koulla Mikellidou & Marios Avraamides. Watch this space for updates!

Venues for future ECVP meetings are decided by those present at the business meeting. By tradition, a venue is selected two years in advance. Proposals for three years hence are also welcome, but not required, and are not decided upon at that time. If you are a potential future organizer, you may find the Organizers' User Manual useful.
