CVR-VISTA Vision Science Summer School (CVRSS), 2021

CVR-VISTA Vision Science Summer School (CVRSS), 2021 
York University,
Toronto, Canada


The Centre for Vision Research at York
University in Toronto, Canada offers a one-week
undergraduate summer school on vision science in cooperation with the
Vision: Science to Applications (VISTA)

In the past the CVRSS has been an expenses-paid, in-person event but
due to the COVID-19 pandemic the 2021 version will be wholly virtual
(while maintaining the intimate and interactive nature of the
experience). This year's program will be held July 5th - 9th, 2021.

The program includes talks by CVR faculty members on current research
topics in vision science, as well as (virtual) hands-on experience in
CVR laboratories. The curriculum reflects the wide range of research
areas at CVR, which includes research on human visual perception,
computer vision, machine learning, visual neuroscience, digital media,
immersive environments, and visual disorders.


The program accepts undergraduate students who are interested in
pursuing a career in scientific research. It is intended mainly for
students who are planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of
2021 (for entry in fall 2022), and who are interested in investigating
vision science as an area of research. Citizens of all countries are
eligible. The application deadline is March 26th, 2021.


Application instructions are available on the CVR summer school
website ( ).  We are accepting
applications from now until March 26th, 2021. Applicants will be
notified of decisions by mid-April. We expect to accept between 30 and
40 students.
