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 33rd annual BAVRD.

This year's Bay Area Vision Research Day will be a one-day virtual event.
This year we will have a round of 5 minute presentation talks. We encourage Bay Area (and Bay Area-adjacent) scientists to present novel or unpublished data related to the study of vision. A winner will be selected for a prize! The deadline to submit a talk was September 10th.
Below is the list of BAVRD 2021 speakers. NOTE: Please bring red-green anaglyph glasses for the keynote presentation. If you are in Berkeley, there will be a number of such glasses on the door to office 506 in Minor Hall. Please help yourselves!
