When: 02 December 2011 1:00pm to 2:00pm

The Bristol Vision Institute (BVI) is the home of vision science research in Bristol. BVI stimulates research in science, engineering, arts and medicine across both the University of Bristol and UWE; It is built on the belief that interdisciplinary research is central to the future development of the field. BVI brings together engineers and scientists from a range of academic disciplines including electrical and electronic engineering, computer science, biological sciences, experimental psychology, mathematics, biochemistry and anatomy. The range of academic staff and researchers work together on vision and imaging research and its engineering applications. In this talk Professor David R. Bull, Director of BVI, will speak about the institute???s scope and activities, with emphasis on how interdisciplinary collaboration can provide new research opportunities as well as new solutions to existing problems. Examples will include biologically inspired image analysis, camouflage, vision and the creative arts, and the interactions between vision and locomotion.
