cartocon2014_logoThe CARTOCON 2014 Conference will be held in Olomouc, Czech Republic, 25–28 February 2014.
This conference aims to bring together cartographers from across different areas of our discipline.
The conference will provide a forum for the presentation of scientific papers particulary within five fields of cartography:

  • Maps and Atlases Production
  • Use and Users Issues
  • Cognition and Visualization Issues
  • Maps and Internet
  • Cartography and Statistics

Invitation to workshop “Eye tracking: why, when, and how?”

Pre-Conference Workshop to the ICC2013

Pre-Conference Workshop to ICC2013
23 (noon)–24 (all day) August 2013 @ the Dresden University of Technology, Germany

The ICA Commissions on Cognitive Visualization, Geovisualization, and Use and User Issues cordially invite you to participate in a hands-on workshop on how to efficiently and effectively collect, analyze, and make sense of eye movement data in empirical user studies. We will work hands-on with real eye-trackers and real data during the workshop, and discuss issues in the group.

This workshop is intended to bring together a broad mix of researchers interested in eye movement data collection methods, ranging from the eye tracking novice who might wish to learn more about this empirical technique, to the seasoned eye tracking expert who wishes to share advanced analytical approaches with other like-minded empirical researchers. Part of the program will use parallel tracks to meet the needs of both novices and experts, and a ‘data challenge’ will form a key component of the meeting.

We thus encourage various avenues for involvement in this hands-on workshop, and call for the following contributions:

We expect your abstract containing a statement of interest, including the type of proposed contribution (ca. 1 page, PDF or MS Word) by February 1, 2013. Please send your contributions to: icacogvis@geo.uzh.ch (Subject: ICC13). Notifications of acceptance: March 1, 2013.

Participation cost: 40 EUR (lunch on the first and second day are included in the workshop fee)

Further details about workshop, registration etc. will be published here: https://www.geo.uzh.ch/microsite/icacogvis/activities.html

Further questions can be directed to the commission chairs: Sara Fabrikant, Gennady Andrienko, and Corné van Elzakker
