Welcome to Xiaoli Zhang & Doug Addleman
We would like to officially welcome two new OPAM organizers: Xialoi Zhang and Doug Addleman. They will be joining Blaire Dube and Andrew Clement to lead OPAM 29 this upcoming November!
Partnership with Visual Cognition
Visual Cognition has been a longtime supporter and sponsor of OPAM. This year, submissions that are chosen for talk presentations will have the opportunity to submit their ultimate manuscripts through a fast-tracked and full peer-review process for publication at Visual Cognition. OPAM talks-turned-manuscripts will be expedited and guaranteed a 40-day turnaround from submission to initial decision (including full reviews). Furthermore, the editorial board at Visual Cognition are eager to mentor young trainees and will provide extra constructive feedback through the peer-review process. Publications that come out of this process will be highlighted as special OPAM papers. This OPAM–Visual Cognition publication opportunity is completely optional, and presenters are by no means obliged to submit to Visual Cognition; furthermore, ultimate acceptance of the submitted manuscript is not guaranteed. However, we sincerely hope that high-quality presentations that are submitted to OPAM and chosen for talks will take advantage of this unique opportunity!
Thank you to our past and current sponsors for making OPAM possible! Consider being a sponsor for 2021. Sponsoring OPAM emphasizes your commitment to supporting the scientific endeavors of early-career researchers (see infographic!), and fostering networking opportunities for individuals who will be on the market for graduate studies, postdoctoral positions, faculty appointments, and industry positions. Sponsorship rates begin for as little as $225, which includes advertising space in the OPAM program, website and e-mails, and spotlight exposure during the conference. Typical sponsors include academic departments, hardware and software companies, and other research-related institutions. If your organization is interested in supporting OPAM, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible!
We are grateful to our 2020 sponsors for their support in enabling us to organize and run OPAM 28! Consider being a sponsor!
