The local organizing team has secured a large block of hotel rooms at
special discounted rates for the conference. Specific hotel information will

Publication of Abstracts 

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

forward to welcoming you to Alicante!
