Dear Colleagues,

We are happy to invite you to attend the European Retina Meeting 2007 
(ERM 2007, meeting home page http://www.retina-meeting.eu/), which will 
be held in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, from October 4-6, 2007.

ERM 2007 will focus on early visual processing in the vertebrate retina, 
including anatomical, physiological and modelling approaches. The 
meeting will bring together retina specialists from Europe and overseas 
to facilitate a wider exchange of ideas and concepts and to invoke 
stimulating discussions about the complex mechanisms that underlie 
retinal processing.

ERM 2007 will include two special lectures, given by Eberhart Zrenner 
and by David I. Vaney, and five symposia on different aspects of retinal 
processing. Each symposium will consist of a keynote lecture by an 
outstanding scientist and three to four talks by speakers selected from 
submitted abstracts. Symposia topics and keynote speakers will be:

Development and plasticity - Rachel O. Wong
Synaptic organization of the retina - Heinz Wässle
Retinal colour processing strategies - Steven H. DeVries
Spatio-temporal computing/coding in the retina - Markus Meister
Retinal adaptation on different levels - Jonathan B. Demb

Two-hour poster sessions with no conflicting events will be held on two 
of the conference days, covering various aspects of retina research, 
including the topics of the symposia. Single-track oral and poster 
sessions enable all presented work to be highly visible.

Registration fee is 60 Euros for students and 100 Euros for all other 
Please note that for space reasons the number of participants will be 
limited to 150, therefore early registration is recommended.

Deadline for registration is June 24, 2007.
Deadline for abstract submission is August 20, 2007.

The meeting is organized by the DFG-supported Research Unit “Dynamics 
and Stability of Retinal Processing”.

We look forward to your participation, and hope to see you in
