With the deadline for submissions some eight weeks away, there is still ample time for some preliminary informal exchanges between the conference organizers and those considering sending in submissions. Please write to us if you feel you have questions this call for abstracts does not answer.

Our ambition is to organize a really momentous conference, with talks that make a difference, adding up to a recognizable scholarly step forward. 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 perspectives, including historical, philosophical, sociological, etc. are welcome. The conference language – the language of all submissions, talks, and ensuing publications – is English.

Please contact  Prof. Dr. András Benedek and Kristóf Nyíri to express your interest in participating in the conference and to propose submissions.
