A weekly meeting is to provide an informal venue for vision-interested researchers to collectively mull over various vision-related articles. We will meet from 11.30am-12.30pm on Fridays in the Nick Makintosh room in the Psych Dept at Downing site, unless otherwise notified.

Unlike other talks or colloquiums, the idea of these meetings is not to passively sit in the audience and be informed about a topic of research by an expert in the field, but instead to have a collection of people who have all read the article get together and work through the article, clarify important points and discuss the implications.

While each meeting will have a host – someone to keep things (roughly) on track – the emphasis will be on group discussion of the paper.

To keep things informal and encourage as much interaction as possible we’ll actively discourage any kind of powerpoint or prepared presentation and instead encourage people to just work off the paper in hand.

The emphasis will be on high impact and controversial papers related to vision science that can foster discussion about emerging issues.
