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?
