As already notified, there will be an Exhibition called “IllusoriaMente” (meaning both illusorily and the illusory mind) dedicated to the memory of the late Richard Gregory and the late Tom Troscianko. “IllusoriaMente” will celebrate the ingenuity and creativity of both VSAC and ECVP attendees in producing attractive scientific/artistic exhibits ranging from visual illusions to all kinds of experimental tools/procedures to applications/implementations of theories, mechanisms and principles ruling the visual system. The exhibition will be held in two of the striking C16th lookout towers in the old town – the Torre Sulis and the Torre San Giovanni (see the pictures) for the population of Alghero and the attendees of VSAC and ECVP.
There will be an opportunity for all participants to both VSAC and ECVP to contribute an exhibit for “IllusoriaMente”
We plan to have new innovation at this year’s ECVP: the “IllusoriaMente SHOW TIME” to be held on Monday evening (3rd September) in the CarlosV hotel (more details will be published soon).
We would like to encourage you all to present a demonstration or exhibit related to your research. This might be a new visual effect (it could be related to a presentation already scheduled as a paper or poster at the conference); a well-known illusion; an old effect presented in a new way; or something artistic that is visually exciting. We will be able provide some projectors, screens, tables and poster-boards.
Please email your proposal (a brief paragraph) to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com giving details of how much space would be needed and what (if any) facilities you would like the organisers to provide.
There will be two awards and prizes for the best “Shows” – a Richard Gregory prize for the most amusing demonstration and a Tom Troscianko prize for the most outrageous exhibit. After “ShowTime”, we intend to add the prizewinners’ exhibits and several of the other striking demonstrations to the exhibits in the Sulis and San Giovanni towers that will then be on view to the general public throughout the rest of the meeting.
