On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to attend the 8th Iberian Conference on Perception that will be held in June, 20-22nd, 2019, in San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Spain.

This conference is focused on Perception, emphasizing different aspects like: Motion Perception, Spatial Vision, Stereopsis, Color Perception, Perception and Action, Attention and Cognition, Auditory Perception, Multisensory Integration and Reading/Speech Perception.

In this sense, the conference will include two keynote lectures from internationally renowned scientists, symposia, talks and poster sessions.

All abstracts will be published in the Journal: The Spanish Journal of Psychology (Cambridge University Press).

Regarding the venue, this year the conference will be held in the Real Centro Universitario Escorial-María Cristina, in the town of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, which is about 45 Km north from Madrid, Spain.

Finally, the conference rate will include, r egistration, coffee breaks, lunch, and a private visit to the The Royal Seat of San Lorenzo of El Escorialwhich has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
