Colourlab Workshop #1/2014: Color Deficiency

Are you interested in getting to know more about the human color vision system? Are you acquainted with universal design and color vision deficiencies? Are you maybe color blind yourself? Then we have just the right thing for you! 

The Norwegian Colour and Visual Computing Laboratory is very excited to invite you to the first Color Deficiency Workshop at Gjøvik University College on Thursday May 8th and Monday May 19th 2014. The workshop is meant to take a closer look at the human visual system in the light of universal design with focus on color deficient people. We are glad to present you the best of our very own speakers and the most interesting external speakers in the field from Trondheim (Ali Alsam) and Paris (Françoise Viénot). We are looking forward to welcoming you who is interested to learn more about color vision. We want to provide a forum to discuss current topics in universal design with focus on color deficiencies.

No registration required as you may pick up your own lunch in the cafeteria.
