As in previous years, the 2022 edition of the ECVP will contain a wide variety of interesting keynote lectures, tutorials, symposia, poster sessions, a demo night and more.


Please note that the poster locations and numbers, will be made known at a later time. More specifically, detailed information, including the abstracts, will be made available via a conference app.

A symposium provides a diverse overview of a lively research area that is of interest for the ECVP audience. Symposium organizers were asked to include speakers from different groups, who represent a broad range of views and ideas under the umbrella of the symposium topic. The individual talks relate to each other and should be suited to provoke discussion. All symposia have a total length of 1,5 hours. The time is shared among 4-6 speakers, who each contribute with a talk of 15 or 30 min, including discussion. The symposium will be moderated by the organizer or a selected speaker. The ECVP organizers explicitly also encouraged young investigators to take the chance of organizing a symposium.

List of symposia (click here for full description):

  1. Computational perspectives on perceptual confidence (Laura Geurts & Janneke Jehee)

Illusion and Demo Night

(click here for more info)

On Tuesday August 30th, from approximately 18:45 onwards, the ECVP will host the Illusion & Demo Night: An interactive evening open to the general public. The Illusion & Demo Night will take place on campus at the Huygens building, Heyendaalseweg 135, Nijmegen. 📍

Conference dinner

The conference dinner on August 31 will be served in the Stevenskerk, Sint Stevenskerkhof 62, Nijmegen 📍. The Stevenskerk is the oldest and biggest church of Nijmegen, build in the late gothic style. It is situated on top of a small hill, the Hundisburg, in the heart of the city center.

Farewell party

The farewell party on September 1 will be in De Vereeniging, Keizer Karelplein 2d, 6511 NC, Nijmegen 📍. Come dance the night/conference away with DJ Stefan van der Stigchel! De Vereeniging is one of the largest stages in Nijmegen in the heart of the city. It is located at the famous Keizer Karelplein, in the city centre.
