Visual Properties Driving Visual Preference (VPDVP)

June 13, 2019 - June 14, 2019

The 5thedition of the Visual Properties Driving Visual Preference (VPDVP) workshop will take place at on 13-14 June 2019. We are happy to confirm the following keynote presentations.

Keynote speakers:

Johan Wagemans (University of Leuven, Belgium)

Chris McManus (UCL, UK)

Edward Vessel (Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics, Germany)

Since 2015, VPDVP has provided the forum to explore preference for a variety of visual properties, including symmetry, fractals, natural statistics and smooth curvature. More information on previous editions can be found here: www.bertamini.org/lab/vpdvp.html

Whilst keeping the same format (i.e. presentations and round table discussion), this year we explore empirical aesthetics and visual preference in relation to individual differences, mental health and wellbeing. We value the use of multidisciplinary approaches to address these questions; therefore, professionals and collaborators working in visual arts, architecture and design are encouraged to attend the workshop.

In order to allow fruitful discussions, we prefer keeping the number of attendees low (40-50 people). To enquire about space and register please fill in the attached form and send it to vpdvpworkshop@gmail.com

If you would like to present your work, please submit an abstract (300 words limit)by the 1stApril 2019 5pm UK timeto: vpdvpworkshop@gmail.com All abstracts will be reviewed.
