Bay Area Vision Research Day – September 12, 2016


Monday September 12th 

The Bay Area Vision Research Day (BAVRD) is a one-day research conference devoted to bringing the vision research community of the Bay Area together in order to present and to discuss new and exciting findings in the fields of ophthalmology, optometry, biology, neuroscience, visual psychophysics, and computer vision. What distinguishes BAVRD from other conferences is that it is primarily organized and run by graduate students from the Vision Science Graduate Group at the University of California, Berkeley. This year marks the 28th annual BAVRD.

The 28th Annual BAVRD is set to be on Monday September 12th 2016 at the Alumni house and promises to be better than ever!

Registration is now closed

Registration is FREE and includes breakfast, lunch and a light refreshment.

Call for Poster Presentations

Every year the Bay Area Vision Research Day holds a poster session where we encourage researchers throughout the Bay to present novel data, or unpublished data recently presented related to the study of Vision.  This year, as part of the BAVRD Poster Session, there will be a prize for best poster.

Poster Submission Closes August 25th.

If you are interested in having a poster at our award winning poster session please submit an abstract here.
