AVA Logo

The AVA's objectives are to advance, promote, develop and improve the study and knowledge of vision sciences including the study and knowledge of all medical problems relating to vision. The AVA serves to fund, aid, maintain and endow scholarships, travel grants and bursaries and generally to assist in the remuneration, instruction and support of persons and institutions engaged or involved in the study or improvement of vision sciences.

Vision Sciences Society

VSS Logo

The Vision Sciences Society is a nonprofit membership organization of scientists who are interested in the functional aspects of vision. The main purpose of the society is to hold an annual meeting that brings together in one forum scientists from the broad range of disciplines that contribute to vision science, including visual psychophysics, neuroscience, computational vision and cognitive psychology. The scientific content of the meetings reflects the breadth of topics in modern vision science, from visual coding to perception, recognition and the visual control of action, as well as the recent development of new methodologies from cognitive psychology, computer vision and neuroimaging.

Society for Neuroscience
