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.
BVI Seminar Series
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, followed by an informal drinks and nibbles reception.
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.
The 2019 event was hosted in July by the University of Exeter and Cardiff University will host the 2020 event. 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.
Richard Gregory Memorial Lecture
Bristol Vision Institute celebrates the work and life of Professor Richard Gregory through an annual public lecture in his memory.
Thank you to this year's speaker Alex McDowell, but also to everyone who attended this year's lecture - look out for news about when the recording of the event will be available.
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.
