The 14th European Conference on Eye Movements, ECEM2007, will take  
place from Monday, August 20th (9:00), to Thursday, August 23rd  
(13:00), in Potsdam, Germany. There will be a welcome reception on  
Sunday evening, August 19th.

ECEM2007 covers all aspects of the oculomotor system and its relation  
to perceptual and cognitive processes, including applications and  
measuring techniques. The website of the conference, http:// 
www.ecem2007.org, is now operational and provides information about  
the conference. It also provides information about hotel reservation  
which should be done by the participants in direct contact with the  
hotels. We advise early hotel reservation.

Registration and abstract submission will start on March 15th, 2007.

The format of the conference will follow the format of the last  
conference in the ECEM series with oral talks and poster  
presentations in any area related to eye movements grouped into  
thematic sessions. Among the scientific conference highlights are:

A plenary symposium in honour of John M. Findlay (University of  
Durham, UK).

Invited lectures by Gerry Altmann (University of York, UK), Michael  
E. Goldberg (Columbia University, USA), Hans-Otto Karnath (University  
of Tuebingen, Germany), Susana Martinez-Conde (Barrow Neurological  
Institute, Phoenix, USA), Keith Rayner (University of Massachusetts,  
Amherst, USA).

Symposia will cover diverse topics including "Natural scence  
perception", "Eye movements in reading", "Mathematical modeling",  
"Eye tracking and event-related potentials", "A modern view of the  
pursuit system", "The anti-saccade task", "Visual search and  
scanpath", "Binocularity", "Evaluation in patients with brain  
damage", "Usability research".

Abstracts for oral talks and poster presentations must be submitted  
before April 30, 2007. Notification of acceptance will be before May  
30th, 2007. Before abstract submission, participants must register  
and pay the conference fee. The registration fee will be 150 EUR for  
delegates and 130 EUR for predocs. As of August 1st, the conference
