Spring School on 'High-Level Vision'

The spring school / symposium takes place from April 10-13, 2017.

The CIN and the University of Tübingen are happy to invite you to our Matariki Spring School & Symposium on "High-Level Vision: from Mechanisms to Perception”. The Spring School will combine symposium-like talk-and-discussion formats with student talk sessions, tutorials, and a social framing programme. Our venue will be the Institute for Medical Virology/Microbiology on Schnarrenberg (Elfriede-Aulhorn-Str. 6, Tübingen), where the talks, poster session and spring school courses will all take place.

The event is organised within the framework of the Matariki Network of Universities, as part of the network's 'Brain and Mind' focus field. Please find the (preliminary) programme attached, and get more information at

Participants in the spring school are expected to give a short talk, present a poster and attend the three tutorials by our spring school tutors (A. Atkinson, Durham University; P. Tse, Dartmouth College, and N. Troje, Queen’s University). We have limited capacity (20 student participants), so registration is necessary, but there is no fee, and the spring school is open to Master and PhD students as well as postdocs.

Registration for the spring school requires your CV, a short letter of motivation, and an abstract of your talk and poster. Please register by March 31st, 2017, via e-mail to

Visitors to the symposium part of the event (Monday & Tuesday) are welcome; talks are open to all and free of registration!

Please forward this information to your colleagues, especially those who might be interested in participation in the spring school part of the event. We are very much looking forward to meeting many of you there!
