We are pleased to announce that the Winter School on Eye-Tracking 
Methodology (WSETM'2009) will be held at the Computer Vision Centre 
(CVC), Barcelona, Spain during  November 24-27, 2009.

WSETM'2009 is organized by the Computer Vision Center (CVC), in the 
Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). AERFAI members will be able to 
apply for financial support for attending the School.

The subject of the School is EYE-TRACKING METHODOLOGY and specifically 
the applications of eye-tracking for pattern recognition and computer 
vision research. This educational activity will be the first major 
course on eye-tracking in Spain. The course is devoted to provide the 
students with both theoretical background and a strong hands-on 
experience. In this sense the students will enjoy direct access to 
different eye-tracker hardware and software systems (head-mounted, 
remote and high-speed).

By the end of the school the participants will have a thorough 
background on eye-tracking methodology and will be able to use 
eye-tracking in their own research. The programme is structured to 
appeal to researchers and industry participants alike regardless of 
their specific topic of research or application.


Highly esteemed academics in the field are invited to deliver the 
lectures on the state-of-the-art of eye-tracking methodology. The 
curriculum is planned to correspond to the real-life workflow of 
eye-tracking based research and will cover the following topics:

1. Eye movements and visual attention.
2. Setting up and testing a hypothesis.
3. Experimental design (stimuli preparation).
4. Recording data for different applications.
5. Data analysis.
6. Applications for computer vision.

Enrolment deadline: November 1st, 2009
Registration fees: 400Eu per student. (optional +35Eu Banquet Dinner on 
Wednesday 25) Discounts are available for AERFAI members.
