From picture to reality, from observer to agent
June 6 - 9, 2022
The 2022 CVR/VISTA conference will connect the long history of picture perception with new display technologies that blur the differences between pictorial representations and the reality of the world that they attempt to depict.
The program will be complemented by lab visits, poster sessions, industry exhibitions and presentations, and a banquet in honour of outgoing CVR director Laurence Harris.
