Conference Theme

Innovation, Collaboration, and Application.  Eye movement research is conducted in a variety of contexts, creating opportunities for cooperation and collaboration between scholars and researchers across disciplines and institutions. This mixture of methodologies, backgrounds, and technologies can create a strong potential for true innovation, true collaboration and quality application. Publications from this conference, and the conference itself, will serve as the initiator for an Australasia-wide network.

General Areas of Interest

  • Cooperation and Collaboration. Lessons learned in conducting eye movement research across multiple institutions, settings, and disciplines.
  • Technological Advances. Innovative uses of existing technology as well as pioneering implementation of new technology in a range of research contexts and disciplines.
  • Eye Tracking Methodologies, Methods, and Applications. Reports of research projects from a range of disciplines.
  • Data Analysis and Interpretation. Key challenges and important discoveries in moving from raw data to findings.
  • Building and Maintaining Research Trajectories. Challenges and opportunities related to situating individual research efforts in a larger research context.

ETA 2012 Symposium on EEG and Eye Movement Co-Registration

The aim of this symposium, part of the inaugural Australian eye tracking conference (ETA2012) organised by CQUniversity Australia, is to bring together researchers in the region who are working on EEG-EM co-registration. Submission topics are not restricted to the area of reading. The symposium will have as a guest speaker, Reinhold Kliegl from the University of Potsdam, who has worked extensively in reading research including EEG-EM co-registration. Additional contributions are now invited from other researchers working in the co-registration field.

Pre-Conference Training

On May 30th, the day preceding the conference, conference attendees are invited to register for a separate training event with Objective Eye Tracking and an eye tracking expert from Tobii in Sweden. This will be an opportunity to further develop your knowledge and skills in the use of these technologies.

Peer Review

Authors are invited to submit original contributions in the Full Paper format (up to 12 pages) and Short Paper format (up to 4 pages). All papers will undergo a double blind peer review process which will assess originality, quality, and relevance to eye movement research. Submission formats and instructions are available on the Call for Papers page.
