The International Colour Vision Society (ICVS) held its 18th biennial meeting in Lyon, France in July 2005. The ICVS, originally founded in 1967 as the International Research Group in Colour Vision Deficiencies and renamed in 1997, brings together vision scientists and clinicians with a common interest in color vision and color vision deficiencies. With significant technological advances that have permitted new and deeper questions about color vision to be addressed, the subject matter of recent meetings has expanded to include greater contributions from such areas as molecular genetics and evolution, retinal and cerebral imaging studies and computational modeling. The peer-reviewed papers in this volume span these newer and the more traditional topics of interest to the society, covering both applied and fundamental topics.
