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.
