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 34th annual BAVRD.
This year's Bay Area Vision Research Day will be a one-day event with lectures on Zoom and an in-person poster session, lightning talks, and reception at the International House.
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 We encourage Bay Area (and Bay Area-adjacent) scientists to present novel or unpublished data related to the study of vision.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!
Below is the list of BAVRD 2022 speakers.
