We are very pleased to publish this call for abstracts for ECEM 2013, 
which promises a number of innovations alongside the continuing high 
scientific standards of the worlds largest conference on eye movement 
research. ECEM 2013 is the 17th European Conference on Eye Movements, 
with the original aims of the very first ECEM, /'to exchange information 
on current research, equipment and software'/, at the forefront. In 
2013, it is held in Lund, Sweden, organized by the eye-tracking group at 
Lund Humanities Laboratory <http://www.humlab.lu.se/en/>together with 
COGAIN <http://www.cogain.org/>, the non-profit association for 
communication through gaze based interaction. ECEM 2013 is the first 
conference organized under the auspices of the Eye Movement Researchers 
Association (EMRA), a recently formed not-for-profit organization 
facilitating shared tools for conference organization and management, 
shared publications such as the Journal of Eye Movement Research (JEMR) 
and shared tools for eye movement research and analysis. We look forward 
to welcoming you to Lund in 2013.

*Location*

ECEM 2013 will be held at Lund University, Sweden (for more info, see 
here <http://www.lunduniversity.lu.se>). This medieval town was founded 
circa 990 and Lund University is the second oldest University in Sweden. 
The times higher education world university rankings for 2011-2012 place 
Lund University in the top 100 list in the world. It is placed 45th in 
the world for Life Sciences and 80th in the world overall;

/"Humour, innovation and a humanist perspective join critical thinking 
and a concern for the environment as core values for some 46,000 
students and 6,200 staff at Lund. It was founded in
1666 and is now one of the largest Nordic educational and research 
institutions."
The Times Higher Education Report 2012/

Lund is a quaint academic town with around 111 000 inhabitants, and 
roughly a third of the population are students or employees at Lund 
University. The close proximity to Copenhagen Airport makes this an 
ideal venue for international conferences. All conference activities 
including the scientific, exhibition and social programme, will take 
place in the historic student union castle (shown left), located in 
Lundagård, at the heart of campus and the town. For details of 
*accommodation* and special rates for delegates, see here 
<http://ecem2013.eye-movements.org/registration/accommodation>.

*New to ECEM in 2013*

We aim to have four *panel discussions*during the conference. When 
online registration opens, you will be asked to vote for topics. If you 
have a topic relevant for a broad spectrum of eye movement researchers 
which you would like to see discussed by a panel of experts, please 
forward your ideas to ECEM management here 
<mailto:management@ecem2013.eye-movements.org>. We will also include 
*student competitions* for best talk, best poster, and best *student 
software applications* using eye movements. *Prizes* for student 
contributions include a commercial eye tracker, awarded for best new 
application of eye movement data.

*Information for Symposia*

Each *symposium*will be comprised of four to six talks of 20 min each 
(15 min + 5 min discussion). We strongly recommend that the final slot 
be used as a summary discussion. Symposia should relate to the study of 
eye movements and eye tracking from a psychological, neurobiological, 
clinical, computational or applied perspective. Each symposium should 
provide a large view of one relevant topic and should provoke 
discussion, representing alternative theoretical views or alternative 
approaches rather than a single school. A Symposium submission consists 
of a 200-word proposal stating how the individual talks are related and 
clarifying the benefit of a joint presentation. Symposia chairs ensure 
that each first author submits her/his proposal through the review 
system for talks, with 2-page extended abstract (see information on 
submitting talks below). In the case that one of the suggested 
presentations of a symposium fails to pass the review process or is 
offered as a poster presentation, the scientific panel may suggest an 
alternative presentation from the pool of accepted talks. Submit your 
symposium proposal *here* 
<http://ecem2013.eye-movements.org/submissions>**after November 1^st , 
2012. We will acknowledge receipt of your submission within 48 hours. 
Notification of symposium acceptance will be sent by the end of February.

*Information for Talks*

Each *talk*will be 20 min (15 min + 5 min discussion). *Talks*should 
present high quality, original empirical research either completed or 
work in progress. Any work related to the study of eye movements and eye 
tracking from a psychological, neurobiological, clinical, computational 
or applied perspective can be submitted as an oral presentation. 
Extended abstracts of 2 pages, including a 200 word abstract, a method, 
results/preliminary results and conclusions section and a maximum of one 
figure and one table per extended 2-page abstract. You can download 
templates in MS word, LaTeX, and open office formats *here* 
<http://ecem2013.eye-movements.org/submissions>. All submissions will be 
peer reviewed. We cannot guarantee that we will respect the authors' 
preferences for oral or poster presentation. Depending on the number of 
submissions we receive, some talks may be offered as poster 
presentations. Notification of abstract acceptance for talks will be 
sent April 15. Submit your extended abstract *here* 
<http://ecem2013.eye-movements.org/submissions>after November 1^st , 
2012. We will acknowledge receipt of your submission within 48 hours. 
Notification of talk acceptance will be sent by April 15^th .

*Information for Poster Presentations*

*Posters***may present research in progress or in preparation. 
Submission for *posters* will be 200 word abstracts, that will be peer 
reviewed and a decision for acceptance or rejection will be sent by 
April 15. Submit your poster abstract *here* 
<http://ecem2013.eye-movements.org/submissions>after Nov 1st, 2012.

*Review Policy*

Please note that we will allow each conference participant to be *first 
author on* *one talk only*, but each participant can submit as co-author 
on as many oral presentations as he/she wishes, and as first author on 
as many posters as he/she wishes. First authors should be present during 
the conference and present their own work. Co-authors are not required 
to be present. The review panel is drawn from across a broad range of 
relevant expertise. Author- and reviewer-supplied keywords will 
facilitate the review-assignment process. The members of the scientific 
panel will oversee all review procedures and make the final decision on 
acceptance. All symposium papers will go through the same peer review 
process as other talks. Accepted talks are given the option to submit 
full papers in the Journal of Eye Movement Research, if they wish. For 
details on all these issues, see http://ecem2013.eye-movements.org/.
