ECEM 2019 Conference Information 

The 20th European Conference on Eye Movements, ECEM 2019, will take place
from Sunday, August 18th, to Thursday, August 22nd, in Alicante, Spain. 

Over its more than three-decade long history, ECEM has grown to become the
largest scientific meeting on eye movement research worldwide.  The
conference brings together a vibrant community of researchers working
towards a better understanding of eye movements, and their use in the study
of a wide range of topics in neuroscience, cognitive science and various
applied fields.

Our goal is to promote communication and cooperation between participants
from diverse areas, such as neurophysiology, psychology, medical sciences,
linguistics, computer science, human factors and many others. An important
feature of ECEM is the presentation of state of the art equipment and
software by manufacturers of eye movement recording systems.       

The conference website will soon be active at  <http://www.ecem2019.com/>
www.ecem2019.com. In the meantime, please save the dates: August 18th
through August 22nd, 2019.

Conference Venue and Accommodation

Alicante, with more than 320,000 inhabitants, is a traditional maritime city
located on the Mediterranean Sea. The old part of the city encompasses
Postiguet Beach, two marinas and a large commercial port. The city embraces
an imposing 166-meter rocky hill right next to the sea, Monte Benacantil,
crowned by The Castillo de Santa Bárbara (Santa Barbara Castle). This is one
of the largest castles on the Mediterranean, and the conference dinner will
take place within its premises, with breathtaking views over the city and
the Mediterranean. The slopes of Monte Benacantil surround the old city of
Alicante (El Barrio) like a shield. El Barrio is well known for its vibrant

The local organizing team has secured a large block of hotel rooms at
special discounted rates for the conference. Specific hotel information will
be made available on the website in March 2019. Lodging in the area is
reasonably priced, but accommodation can become limited in the high summer
season. We advise early hotel reservation.


Publication of Abstracts 

Accepted abstracts will be published as a special issue in the Journal of
Eye Movement Research (Editor: Rudolf Groner, Bern). See ECEM 2017’s
