APCV-i (Illusion contest)

The first Asia-Pacific Contest of Visual Illusion (APCV-i) will be held as one of the programs of the 15th Asia-Pacific Conference on Vision (APCV2019) held in Osaka Japan. The committee of the APCV-i is seeking submissions of dramatic, interesting, provocative, educational, and entertaining demonstrations of visual illusions/phenomena.

Presenter(s) are required to exhibit their demos at the reception party to be held on 28th July 2019. The demos can be presented during the APCV2019 (from the 29th July 2019 to the 1st August 2019). The committee will determine the best demonstration on the basis of the voting by the APCV participants and give an award to the presenter(s) for the best demonstration.

The committee would like to invite (at most) 11 demonstrations. If the number of submissions exceeds 12, the committee needs to select 11 demonstrations as the finalist of the APCV-i on the basis of peer review of submissions because this time the space for the demonstration is severely limited.

Each submission requires an A4-size one-page abstract which includes descriptions, graphics, and graphs/tables to explain the submission. For submission with dynamic/motion phenomena, we also recommend submitting URLs of the submissions’ YouTube clip. The documents of accepted submissions will be put on the website of the APCV.

The committee will provide table(s), poster board(s), chair(s), and electrical outlet(s). We expect that the presenter(s) will bring all of the equipment required for the demos. A space of approximately 1.8 m x 1 m will be assigned to each demo. Please contact the committee members if you need further help and information.

In order to present your demonstration, APCV registration is necessary.

If you want to present your demonstration at APCV-i, please send 1) your registration number and 2) the pdf file of the one-page abstract to takkawabe@gmail.com by 20th June 2019.

Takahiro Kawabe, On behalf of APCV-i committee
