BVI’s annual lectures and regular seminars showcase the interdisciplinary nature of its work to a wide audience to promote understanding of the visual mechanisms and processes evolved in humans and other animals, and their translation to innovations in technology, medicine and the creative arts.
Vision Researchers Colloquium
Led by BVI, in partnership with the GW4 Alliance, this annual event brings together vision researchers from a wide range of disciplines, encompassing Vision Science and Engineering.
This year's event was hosted in July by the University of Exeter in the Living Systems Institute. Each colloquium provides an opportunity for postgraduate students, postdoctoral research associates and others at an equivalent early career stage to present their work and obtain valuable feedback in an informal conference environment.
Seminar Series (2019/20 programme pending)
BVI Seminars are free hour-long talks focusing on a particular area of vision research usually with an interdisciplinary flavour. They are delivered by national and international speakers from across the world with a broad appeal across the field of vision.
Seminars are held on alternate Fridays during term time from 4pm-5pm. The location alternates between the Life Sciences Building, Psychology and Merchant Venturers Building, followed by informal drinks and nibbles reception. Please review listings to find out location of each seminar.
Richard Gregory Memorial Lecture (28 November 2019)
Bristol Vision Institute celebrates the work and life of Professor Richard Gregory through an annual public lecture called the Richard Gregory Memorial Lecture.
Over the years we have had the pleasure of hosting speakers from Newcastle University, NASA Ames Research Centre, University of California, Aardman Animations, Silverback Films and the BBC Research and Development department.
The Impossible Garden
The Impossible Garden was an exhibition inspired by visual phenomena, created by artist Luke Jerram post a residency with BVI. It ran over the summer of 2018, with the aim of enhancing our understanding of vision.
