History of European Conferences on Eye Movements

In the early 1980s, under the initiative of Rudolf Groner (Bern), Dieter Heller (at that time in Bayreuth) and Henk Breimer (Tilburg), a transdisciplinary network was founded with the informal name of "European Group of Scientists active in Eye Movement Research." It was joined by numerous scientists from various research areas, all using eye movement registration as a research tool and developing models based on oculomotor data over the whole range of phenomena, from the neurophysiological over the perceptual to the cognitive level.

The group's goals have been to facilitate exchanging information about current research, equipment, and software, and to organize a conference every two years at a different location around Europe.
