Note that logging within the electronic platform is required prior to abstract submission. Enter in the platform, create your user and a password to access the portal of registration. Once you have logged into the personal area you will find the “Abstract Submission” instructions .

Please, read carefully the Abstract Submission Guidelines.

Just one Contribution as first author.

The presenting author should be in the first place of the authors list.

Please note: If the first author of an accepted contribution has not registered by July, 1st2019, the contribution will be deleted from the program.

Talks in regular conference sessions should present high quality, original, empirical research. Any work related to the study of eye movements and eye tracking from a neurobiological, psychological, clinical, computational or applied perspective can be submitted as an oral presentation. Each talk will be 20 min (15 min + 5 min discussion).

Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words in length, which may include up to 1-5 references and it should not exceed one page.

Depending on the number of submissions we receive, some presentations submitted as talks might have to be presented as posters. Authors will be informed in the acceptance mail if a submitted talk has to be presented as a poster instead.

Posters are interactive presentations reporting empirical research on the same level of quality as oral presentations. The advantage of a poster presentation is the opportunity to engage in detailed individual discussions while presenting a project. We specifically encourage young researchers and students to submit their ongoing work in this format.
Abstracts should be a maximum of 250 words in length, which may include up to 1-5 references and it should not exceed one page

Symposia are thematic sessions on a topic that is likely to reflect substantial progress and spark significant scientific debate. Preference will be given to symposia providing diverse theoretical and empirical approaches to issues that appear relevant to more than one field of eye movement research. Symposia can include up to six talks of 20 min each (15 min + 5 min discussion), all presenting original data, or five talks plus one concluding discussion.

Note that symposium participants should come from at least three different institutions.

A symposium chair will need submit a 1800 word proposal for the whole symposium (500 summary + 200 word x 6 talks maximum+100 word references), within 200 to 500 word proposal stating how the individual talks are related and explaining the benefit of a joint presentation as a summary, plus up to 200 words of each individual talk of their symposium, with the complete details: names of the authors, their affiliations, e-mail address of the corresponding author and title of contribution for each talk.

References are included in the word limits 1800 words.
