The 18th European Conference on Eye Movements ECEM 2015, Vienna, Austria

ECEM 2015 took place at the University of Vienna from August 16 to 21, 2015. It was a very interesting conference and a lovely city to spend time in.

I presented my work on skim reading and hypertext:

Fitzsimmons, G., Weal, M. J. & Drieghe, D. (2015, August) Skim Reading: An Adaptive Strategy for Reading on the Web. Presented at European Conference on Eye Movements, Vienna, Austria.

The presentation seemed to be well received and I had lots of interesting feedback and questions. Also, someone wrote a news article on the session of talks I presented in and I got to be the headline photo. Scary…

Where do we look when we buy e-shop, or read on the Web?

ECEM 2013 – Lund, Sweden

European Conference on Eye Movements – ECEM 2013 in Lund, Sweden was great this year. The talks and posters were consistently interesting and I really loved Sweden. This is the first ECEM where I have seen several researchers looking at how people engage with and read hyperlinks which was really good. It was interesting to see how other people have approached the topic. I look forward to seeing more hyperlink research at the next conference!

I gave a presentation on the first steps of measuring how people read hyperlinks and I was also involved in some other projects that were presented at the conference:

Fitzsimmons, G. & Drieghe, D. (2013, August). Measuring the Impact of Hyperlinks on Reading. Presented at the European Conference on Eye Movements, Lund, Sweden.

Drieghe, D., Fitzsimmons, G. & Liversedge, S.P. (2013, August). Parafoveal Preview Effects In Reading Unspaced English Text. Presented at the European Conference on Eye Movements, Lund, Sweden.

Bertram, R., Fitzsimmons, G., Drieghe, D. & Kuperman, V. (2013, August). Why spaces should be replaced by hyphens in English compounds. Poster presented at the European Conference on Eye Movements, Lund, Sweden.

Yes, the conference took place in a castle.

How Fast can Predictability influence Word Skipping during Reading? ECEM Poster 2011 Marseille

From the 21st to the 25th August 2011 I am attending the European Conference on Eye Movements in Marseille. I am presenting a poster on the topic of word skipping and predictability. Below is a link to a pdf of the poster.

The Influence of Number of Syllables on Word Skipping During Reading.

Today I have seen the paper copy of my first publication. It may have had slight administrative hiccups (i.e. published missing the abstract *facepalm*), but it’s still a nice thing to see! I have page numbers and everything! I’m easily pleased.

Very early on Saturday morning I will be making my way to Marseille for the European Conference on Eye Movements. My first time abroad and my first poster, scary stuff. As long as I don’t miss the plane or lose my poster I will count it as a successful trip.

A scheduled post is set to become live on Tuesday 23rd August (the day of my poster) and it will include the reference and a link to a PDF of the poster. That blog post will also be linked from the poster in the form of a rather geeky QR code. It had to be done!
