Panel discussions

ECEM 2013 will include four panel discussions on hot topics related to eye movements research and eye tracking methodologies. We expect lively debate and interesting discussion between researchers and manufacturers, students and established experts.

Panel Discuss 1: How to measure data quality? Can it be objectively reported? What effect does data quality have on research?
Time: Monday, 12/Aug/2013: 18:50 - 20:00
Session Chair: Kenneth Holmqvist
Location: Stora salen

The panelist will consist of (parts of) the technical committee of the Data Quality project and Eyal Reingold. Questions from the audience are welcome and will be mixed with questions submitted in advance.

Panel Discuss 2: The Merits of Experimental and Observational Designs in Eye-Movement Research
Time: Tuesday, 13/Aug/2013: 18:50 - 20:00
Session Chair: Reinhold Kliegl
Location: Stora salen

(1) Divergence/convergence of results with respect to theoretical issues such as lag and successor effects in reading (2) (Traditional) ANOVA statistics vs. (recent) multivariate alternatives (LMMs, GLMMs, GAMMs) (3) Issues relating to replication (statistical power) (4) Relation to basic research, applied research, and use-inspired basic research

Session Abstract

The other panelists will be Keith Rayner, Benjamin Tatler and Kenneth Holmqvist. Questions from the audience are welcome and will be mixed with questions submitted in advance.

Panel Discuss 3: Using eye movement parameters to diagnose neurological disease - something for clinical practitioners or evidence of a fundamental neurological and oculomotor relationship relevant to all eye movement research?
Time: Thursday, 15/Aug/2013: 18:50 - 20:00
Session Chair: Douglas P Munoz
Location: Stora salen

In clinical eye movement research, a number of robust measures have been developed, such as the anti-saccade paradigm and the smooth pursuit measures. Can and should these measures and paradigms be used more generally in psychological research, to control for participants' individual traits?

Session Abstract

Other panelists will be Stefan Everling, Thomas Haslwanter and t.b.a.. Questions from the audience are welcome and will be mixed with questions submitted in advance.

Session
Panel Discuss 4: Future directions for eye movement research and applications
Time: Friday, 16/Aug/2013: 14:30 - 15:30
Session Chair: Carlos H. Morimoto
Location: Stora salen
The main room for keynotes and large sessions. At the 1st floor of the castle.

Eye-tracking changes: New research areas emerge.. Both hardware and software are different, and new applications arrive that become products. More people are using eye-trackers. How do we best prepare for the future?

Session Abstract

The other panelists are Susana Martinez-Conde and others t.b.a.. Questions from the audience will be mixed with questions sent in advance.
