We are pleased to announce the Symposium on Perception and Cognition, and the Kanizsa Lecture 2021.
Gaetano Kanizsa, full professor at university of Trieste for 35 years, was a dominant figure in Italian psychology. His focus of scientific interest was the study of visual perception and he owned his international fame, investigating amodal completion and “subjective contours”. The famous triangle was presented for the first time at the 10th Conference of Italian Psychologist in Chianciano.
This year, the event will be hosted on the historical Palazzo del Bo’, at the University of Padova, Italy on the 22nd of October 2021. These events are part of the celebrations organised as the University of Padova approaches its 800 anniversary in the year 2022. Both symposium and Kanizsa Lecture will be also broadcasted online. The event is free of charge. For more information:
The Kanizsa Lecture, a public event traditionally organized by the University of Trieste in honour of Gaetano Kanizsa, will be organized this year by the University of Padova and delivered by Professor Michael Herzog. Title of the lecture is “The Irreducibility of Vision: Gestalt, Crowding and the Fundamental of Vision.”
The same day as the Kanizsa Lecture, the Symposium on Perception and Cognition will take place, starting from 9:00am. The Symposium will feature original research on any aspects of perception and cognition.
If you wish to contribute with a presentation (talk only) to the Symposium, please submit your proposal by e-mail to [email protected] Each proposal should be submitted as an abstract. Deadline for submissions: Friday 22 September 2021.
Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by a scientific committee and, if accepted, published as conference proceedings on Vision. Following the conference, outstanding contributions will be invited to submit manuscripts for publication in a Special Issue of Vision that highlights the work presented at the conference. The best manuscripts will have a fee waiver for publication.
We hope to see you in Padova!
