COMMUNICATION – CULTURE – CONSCIOUSNESS
8th Visual Learning Conference
26-28 April, 2018, Budapest, Hungary
Want to register for the conference? Please drop a mail to Kristóf NYÍRI. Being registered for the conference means you will receive a name-tag and will be offered complimentary catering throughout the conference. Recall that we charge no conference fees. In your mail please clarify if you do plan to attend from Thursday to Saturday, or participate only in some selected sessions. Also: are you considering to attend the festive conference dinner on Friday evening? This would cost you € 35, but we think it should be worth it, promising good food & wine, but especially: extra opportunities to socialize.
Looking back on the past few months: The deadline for submissions was the 15th of August, 2017. We have received a stunning number of submissions. The double-blind peer-review process was strictly observed. The acceptance rate eventually turned out to be near to 4:1. — Please write to us if you feel you have missed something — or feel we have missed something…
We seem to be heading for a really momentous conference, with talks that make a difference, adding up to a recognizable scholarly step forward, indeed a breakthrough. Subsequent to the conference we plan to publish a high-quality collection of selected and edited papers – an elegant volume (series title: Perspectives on Visual Learning. Preliminary final 🙂 title/subtitle for volume 1: Vision Fulfilled: The Victory of the Pictorial Turn). All points of view, including historical, philosophical, sociological, etc. are welcome. The conference language – the language of all submissions, talks, and ensuing publications – is English.
