The European Conference on Eye Movements is the
largest scientific meeting in the field of research on eye movements and the
largest forum for researchers using eye movements to study issues in
neuroscience, psychology and many fields of application.
This year’s meeting will take place from August 20 to
24 in Wuppertal, Germany. We expect about 600 participants, see the conference
website for detailed information:
We have secured a large number of hotel rooms for the
conference. Terms differ, but most orders will be valid until mid or late July.
Please refer to the information on our website. It is essential that you use
the correct booking code for each hotel. Otherwise, hotels may appear to be
booked out, while, in fact, they are pre-reserved for you.
To register for the conference, please follow the
instructions in the ConfTool-system:

You will notice that that there is a mandatory split
of cost between (tax free) conference contributions and VAT-taxable catering
cost. This was done to be in compliance with the German federal tax code, there
is no need for any action on your part.
In addition to the main conference, you can also register for the
User group meetings:
If you check the box, you can chose between free user meetings offered on
August 22, 17.00 – 19.00 CET by SR Research, SMI and Tobii.
Our evening gathering will take place at the historic city hall in Elberfeld,
not far away from campus. During the dinner there will be a presentation by a
magician (also a psychologist), who will demonstrate stunning phenomena of
human (in)attention, followed an in vogue swing band plus DJ. Note that the social evening is very
moderately priced so that young participants will have a chance to attend and
mingle with fellow researchers. We recommend booking now, as we can’t guarantee
on site ticket availability.
workshops were organized on the basis of community input. We expect them to
fill up quickly and recommend immediate booking. Six of the seven workshops are
planned for six hours on August 19, while one will take nine hours including
the morning of August 20. Fees for the workshops are again quite moderate,
accounting for expenses and catering.
We are looking forward to seeing you this summer. If
you have any question or need help in any respect, please contact us at
Ralph Radach, Heiner Deubel and your team of ECEM 2017 organizers.
