CVR-VISTA Summer School

JUNE 3 - 7, 2019

The Centre for Vision Research (CVR) at York University offers a one-week, all-expenses-paid undergraduate summer school on vision science.

In partnership with VISTA, the program includes talks by CVR faculty members on current research topics in vision science, as well as hands-on experience in laboratories.

The curriculum reflects the wide range of vision research areas including human visual perception, computer vision, machine learning, visual neuroscience, 3D film, immersive environments and visual disorders.

The program is very competitive and accepts 40 undergraduate students each year who are interested in pursuing a career in scientific research. It is ideal for students planning to apply to graduate school in the fall of 2019, and who are interested in investigating vision science as a possible area of research.

Citizens of all countries are eligible. The program covers all transportation costs, and provides on-campus accommodation and meals.
