Call for Symposium Proposal Submissions - NOW OPEN!

We plan a meeting with presenters on-site. We would be happy to welcome you in Nijmegen and now warmly invite you to submit proposals for user-organized symposia at the ECVP ’22.

General information about symposia

A symposium should provide a diverse overview of a lively research area that is of interest for the ECVP audience. Organizers should aim 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 should relate to each other and be suited to provoke discussion.

Each symposium has 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. It is possible, but not mandatory, to include a general discussion in a symposium. We explicitly encourage young investigators to take the chance of organizing a symposium at this important and pleasant conference. We seek for diversity in ECVP’22 contributions with regard to gender, age, nationality, and topics in the field of visual perception.

Submission guidelines

The organizer of the symposium is in charge of the submission. We require the organizer’s address with affiliation and contact information. The submission includes the title, abstract, and speakers of the symposium. The abstract (max. 300 words) should describe the recurrent theme, the motivation, and the relevance of the topic for the ECVP community. Include a full list of confirmed speakers and the titles of their contributions. Make sure that all speakers agree to contribute prior to submission. Only upon acceptance, we require abstracts and contact data of all agreed speakers.

The deadline for submissions is January 15, 2022. Please submit your symposium proposal to: All contributions will be reviewed by a scientific committee. You will be notified about the decision February 15, 2022.

Please note that all speakers of accepted symposium contributions will also have to register as participants for the conference and pay the regular fee. It will be possible to submit a regular contribution in addition to the symposium contribution later on. Please email us ( if you have further questions about the symposia.
