Workshop Announcement: Modelling animal vision using spectrophotometry and calibrated digital imaging – 29 September 2024 Melbourne (AUS) – REGISTRATION NOW OPEN!

Joint Organisers: Cedric P. van den Berg, Jolyon Troscianko, Thomas E. White, Devi Stuart-Fox

We are delighted to announce a one-day workshop on the use of spectrophotometry and calibrated digital imaging for modelling animal vision. The workshop will briefly introduce visual modelling and will cover practical exercises using spectrophotometry, calibrated digital imaging, and accompanying software. The workshop will provide training in using the multispectral image calibration and analysis (MICA) toolbox and integrated components such as the quantitative colour pattern analysis (QCPA) framework, and PAVO for using spectrophotometry.

The workshop will take place immediately prior to the ISBE 2024 Congress in Melbourne and is open to anyone interested.

Date & time:  29 September 2024 0930hrs-1700hrs 
Location: University of Melbourne, Parkville campus, specifics TBC
Required equipment and knowledge: Laptop with pre-installed MICA toolbox (Win/Mac OS/Linux), pre-installed R-Software (and R-Studio if you prefer) with PAVO.

Participants interested in learning about PAVO are expected to have basic coding knowledge in R. Basic knowledge of digital photography and spectrophotometry is beneficial.

Cost: AUD $100 / AUD $75 Students (incl. morning tea & lunch)
