CREATE Training Program in Vision Science & Applications
Sponsorship for Applied Conferences
Trainees are sponsored to attend conferences on applications of vision science.
"I attended the The Eye, the Brain and the Auto conference In Dearborn, MI from September 16th to the 18th, 2013. This applied vision conference brought together speakers with engineering and automotive design backgrounds, traffic safety researchers and engineers, ophthalmologists as well as vision scientists. This diverse make-up made for engaging and insightful discussions that evaluate automotive technologies and human-automobile interactions with regards to aging, visual deficits and rising oil costs. Attending a conference with professionals with different backgrounds allowed me to understand where my work as a vision researcher fits. I learned more about how vision science is perceived and applied within related professional and corporate environments which can ultimately motivate higher impact research projects and collaborations."
