Eye Movements, Cognition and Communication (EMCoC)
SECOND BIENNIAL CONFERENCE ON COGNITIVE SCIENCE
June 9-13, 2006, St. Petersburg
2nd Call for Papers
The Russian Association for Cognitive Studies and EU Network-of-Excellence
COGAIN (Communication by Gaze Interaction) invite submissions for the
First Workshop on Eye Movements, Cognition and Communication (EMCoC) to
be held on June13, 2006, in St. Petersburg. Intentional activity is the
key component of any biological and in an increasing way
artificial information processing. EMCoC is the first of what we hope
will be a number of scientific meetings that bring together researchers
and practitioners in areas such as eye movements, active vision, attention
and action, neurocognitive and neuroaffective mechanisms of oculomotor
activity in cognitive and communicative tasks, innovative applications
of eye-tracking in all domains, especially for communication and security
purposes (e.g. in adaptive assistance systems).
The Workshop encourages submissions on the following topics:
- Relationship between attention and eye movements,
- Ambient vs. focal modes of oculomotor activity,
- Eye movements and scene recognition,
- Visual fixations and levels-of-processing effects in cognitive tasks,
- Eye movements in language processing and communication,
- Innovative applications of eye-tracking research,
- New ways of data-analysis and presentation (attentional landscapes,
fixation maps, etc.),
- Advances in the methodology of eye-tracking and its combination with
brain activity analysis.
The goal of the Workshop is twofold:
- to discuss the state-of-the-art of eye movement research in cognitive
- to attract the interest of cognitive community to eye-tracking and
its innovative applications.
EXTENDED SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE: NOVEMBER 15, 2005.
ADDRESS FOR ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS: email@example.com
There are two categories for submission:
PAPERS (20- or 30-minute spoken presentations) and POSTERS.
Submitted abstracts should be in Russian or English and no longer than
2 pages (single-spaced, Times New Roman, 12 type size), including illustrations
and references. They will be evaluated through peer review with respect
to several criteria, including originality, quality, and significance
of research, relevance to a broad audience of cognitive science researchers,
and clarity of presentation. One author cannot participate in more than
two submitted papers (only once as a first author).
Papers accepted for oral presentation will be presented at the conference
as scheduled talks. Papers accepted for poster presentation will be presented
at a poster session at the conference. All papers may present results
from completed original unpublished research as well as report on current
research with an emphasis on novel approaches, methods, ideas, and perspectives.
FORMAT: MS Word file attached to an e-mail message. At the beginning
of an abstract please indicate the following information:
- the title of the paper
- the author(s) information, including:
- full name
- institutional affiliation
- postal address
- phone number
- e-mail address
- 5 to 7 keywords
- Whether the papers is intended to be presented as talk or as poster
The Program Committee will inform the authors of its decision by FEBRUARY
15, 2006. Abstracts of the accepted papers will be published by the
beginning of the conference.
