The Optica Fall Vision Meeting Planning Committee is pleased to announce that Andrew Stockman has been selected as the 2022 Boynton Lecturer.
Andrew's contribution to vision science has been enormous. He is best known for his development of the most widely-used cone spectral sensitivity functions and associated luminous efficiency function. He has made important contributions to sensitivity regulation in cone and rod photoreceptors, flicker sensitivity in cones, and many other basic scientific and clinical areas. His website, cvrl.org, hosts publicly available data sets, some generated in his labs and others that needed dissemination. Whether we know it or not, most of us have interacted with a CSV file or two that was originally downloaded from Andrew's site. Andrew has been an active member of Optica/OSA for decades; during his tenure as the chair of the Color and Vision Technical Division, he played a key role in the founding of the Fall Vision Meeting.
As the organizers of a meeting that wouldn't exist without him, we're delighted to have Andrew presenting the Boynton Lecture at this year's meeting, and we look forward to all of you being able to celebrate his career with us.
