The Pupil Page

The site is intended to provide information about the pupil of the eye, and the people who study it. It is associated with the email list 'Pupil', details of which can be found here.

Pupil Colloquia

The Pupil Colloquium has a history going back to the 1961 when Larry Stark organised the first meeting, in Boston.
Recent meetings have been held in Asilomar, California (2001), Nottingham, England (1999), Alabama (1997), Tübingen, Germany (1995), Iowa City (1993) and Woods Hole, USA (1991).

The Colloquium is a meeting of people, from different backgrounds, who have a common interest in the pupil of the eye. There are not many of us, and so our meetings are generally small, friendly, and relatively informal. We discuss any aspect of the pupil, from its use in a clinical setting, providing information about the health of the eye, to how it's responses can be modelled mathematically.

The variety of interests and backgrounds of participants can be seen from the diversity of
abstracts submitted to the 25th Colloquium and
abstracts submitted to the 24th Colloquium and
abstracts submitted to the 23rd Colloquium and
abstracts submitted to the 22nd Colloquium and
abstracts submitted to the 21st Colloquium.

Fuller details of the last colloquium can be found here.   
Fuller details of the 23rd colloquium can be found here.   

The next Colloquium will be held in the Conference Centre of the Orthodox Academy of Crete, in Kolimpari, a small village 12Km outside Hania, from Thursday 11th September to Monday 15th September 2003 The Irene Loewenfeld lecture will be given by Dr. Randy Kardon, of the University of Iowa Department of Ophthalmology
