Introduction and Overview

The European Conference on Eye Movements, ECEM2007, is the 14th in a series of international scientific conferences dedicated to transdisciplinary research on eye movements. The series was initiated in 1981 by Rudolf Groner in Bern and is organized every second year by a group of European scientists active in eye movement research. This meeting in Potsdam is the third one in Germany, after Göttingen in 1987 and Ulm in 1997.

The broad range of topics of the ECEM conferences attracts scientists from psychology, cognitive and visual neuroscience, computer science and related disciplines with interests from basic research to medical and applied aspects. Some 400 scientists from 27 countries, literally from around the world, have registered as participants of ECEM2007 and submitted over 300 oral and poster presentations.

The scientific program takes place from Monday, August 20th, 9:00, to Thursday, August 23th, 12:30, with the welcome reception on Sunday evening, August 19th. The conference will feature plenary lectures, oral and poster sessions, with plenty opportunities for small group and informal talks.

The conference venue is on the campus of the University of Potsdam. Potsdam is the capital city of the State of Brandenburg with about 140,000 inhabitants. It is located only about 30 km from Berlin's center, connected to the public transportation network of the Berlin area. The conference location is in the immediate neighborhood to Sanssouci Park, Potsdam's most popular sight, selected as UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.
