Dear Friends and Colleagues
It is our great honor to be hosting the 24th international meeting of the Imaging and Perimetry Society in Berkeley, California. It is 40 years since the meeting was last held in California, in Sacramento in 1982. Berkeley is a college town nestled in the East Bay, with a stunning campus and exceptional views of the City, the Golden Gate Bridge, the historic Angel Island, the landing site for generations of immigrants, the notorious Alcatraz, and the majestic Marin headlands in the North Bay.
We look forward to welcoming you and for us to celebrate our research and the discussion it will generate. Themes will include the application of AI to imaging and perimetry, taking advantage of our colocation with Silicon Valley and the innovation that bursts from the South Bay. We will also highlight single cell psychophysics of retina, along with new ideas, developments and applications associated with imaging and measurement of the visual field.
Social events will include a welcome reception in the historic Berkeley Faculty Club, highlighting the architecture of 1920s Arts and Crafts innovators Julia Morgan and Bernard Maybeck, a fun and relaxed pub night, a visit to beautiful William Hill winery in Napa for a culinary experience and wine tasting, and a final evening banquet at Berkeley’s newest hotel, the Residency Inn by Marriott.
Berkeley is 45 minutes from San Francisco airport and 20 minutes from Oakland airport, with public transport available from both, along with plentiful Ride App options. We have arranged your stay at several local hotels including The Graduate Berkeley, formerly the Durant Hotel. This historic, boutique hotel has been recently renovated and is minutes’ walk from the the Herbert Wertheim School of Optometry and Vision Science, the conference venue. All lectures will be in room 489 on the second floor of Minor Hall. Should you require parking please use the Stadium Parking Garage, underneath the Maxwell Family Field, 2175, Gayley Rd, opposite the Haas School of Business.
We wish you safe travels and successful scientific preparations for what we are certain will be a stimulating and enjoyable 24th Imaging and Perimetry Society meeting.
