Dear colleagues, 

We have been approached by researchers who expressed difficulty meeting the relatively early submission deadline for the European Conference of Eye Movements in Wuppertal. As a result, we have decided to move the deadline to April 18 as the final date for submissions of talks and posters. The time for notification and early registration will be moved up to May 15.  

We have already received a large number of submissions. Note that changes to your submission can still be made in the ConfTool system before the final April 18 deadline.

Compared to the earlier ECEM conferences in Vienna and Lund we have been able to lower registration fees to 160 € (early) and 200 € (late) for students (including doctoral students) and to 260 (early) and 300 (late) for regular attendees.

We would also like to mention that ECEM takes place immediately before the European Conference for Visual Perception (ECVP) from 27-31 August in Berlin and the Conference of the European Society for Cognitive Psychology (ESCOP) from September 3-6 in Potsdam. For overseas travelers it may be interesting to know that the Berlin/Potsdam area can be reached from Wuppertal, Düsseldorf or Cologne by train in about 4 hours. So attending two conferences can be easily combined with touristic activities in either area.

Abstracts of all ECEM contributions will be published in a special issue of the Journal of Eye Movement Research, with direct linking and DOI for each abstract. Some symposia and thematic sessions will also be invited as special issues. Individual conference contributions may be submitted as articles to the Journal.

Conference Program
This year’s program will include invited talks by eminent scholars in various fields of eye movement research (see http://ecem2017.uni-wuppertal.de/keynotes.html <http://ecem2017.uni-wuppertal.de/keynotes.html>). There will be a wide range of symposia covering diverse and innovative areas of eye movement research such as pharmacological effects on eye movement control, developmental eye tracking, immersive technologies/virtual reality, visualizations for better learning, rhythmic processing in music and dance, self-motion perception, analysis of microsaccades, eye movements in reading and history of eye movement research.

ECEM will also be hosting pre-conference workshops on the topics listed below.
- Programming and analyzing eye-tracking experiments in Python
- Eye tracking in virtual realities
- Analyzing Eye Movement Experiments using Linear Mixed Models in R
- Infant eye tracking
- Combining Eye-Tracking and EEG: From Theory to Practice
- A worst practice workshop for eye tracking researchers
- Combining Eye-Tracking and EEG: From Theory to Practice
- Workshops on communication by gaze interaction (COGAIN)
Conference Venue and Social Activities

The city of Wuppertal is located in west central Germany, very close to Cologne and Düsseldorf.  There is ample opportunity for touristic traveling, with local sites ranging from beer gardens in the old town, world famous music and dance theaters, all the way to medieval castles and long hiking trails in unspoiled nature. The romantic Rhine valley is just a short drive away. Social activities at ECEM will include a conference dinner at the historic city hall and a beer party with a local DJ.
