25th Symposium of the International Colour Vision Society (ICVS) will be held in Riga, Latvia, 5-9 July 2019. Riga is the biggest metropolis in the Baltics, which perfectly blends timeless tradition and cutting edge cool. In its 800 years of turbulent history, everyone from German knights to Swedish kings and Soviet commissars have left their footprints, and today Latvia’s capital is an exciting European metropolis at the crossroads of eastern and northern Europe.
