International Colour Vision Society Symposium 2001
A symposium of the International Colour Vision Society was held in Cambridge, from Friday July 13th to Tuesday July 17th, 2001. The meeting covered all aspects of normal colour perception, as well as inherited and acquired deficiencies of colour vision. The meeting was sponsored by the Wellcome Trust; and the Colour Group of Great Britain acted as the host national society. The organisers are leaving in place these web pages, for the convenience of contributors requiring information about publication arrangements and for anyone wishing to refer back to the travel and accommodation information originally provided for delegates.

After graduating in medicine at the Georg-August University, Göttingen, Young had come to Emmanuel in 1797. During this period he worked experimentally on acoustics. A college contemporary recorded: '...his room had all the appearance of belonging to an idle man. I once found him blowing smoke through long tubes...' These experiments on acoustics were in fact to form the basis for a paper in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society in 1800. By the autumn of 1801 his analogy between sound and light was fully developed. He delivered his Bakerian Lecture 'On the Theory of Light and Colours' on November 12 of that year.
