VSS 2022, we’re coming!

We are almost done preparing for VSS, and there was a lot to prepare, indeed. If you would like to see what we’ll be presenting, here is a list of our poster, talk, and demo night contributions sorted by temporal order. We’re looking forward to seeing you at any or all of these!

Demo Night presentations

Mind control in motion perception
Carolin Hübner & Martin Rolfs
In an interactive setting you will experience objects moving in ambiguous ways. Using mysterious powers of mind control, the demonstrators will influence your percept or predict what you see. Along the way, you will learn about some of the most secret powers of motion processing.

Retinal painting using (intra-saccadic) anorthoscopic presentations
Richard Schweitzer, Tamara Watson, John Watson, Martin Rolfs
Anorthoscopic presentation devices show stimuli in a piecewise manner, as if seen moving through a narrow slit. At extremely high velocities, such presentations appear like brief flashes, but not during saccades: When spread across the retina, they produce well resolvable images that briefly remain visible due to visual persistence!
