Courses & workshops

EMRA courses and workshops:

  • As part of ETRA 2016 in South Carolina, Eye Data Quality (EDQ) Standardisation Project (http://www.eye-movements.org/eye_data_quality) offered the tutorial "Eye data quality: measuring, calculating, and reporting".

    Abstract: The quality of the data produced by eye trackers has a profound effect on what can be reliably measured and inferred in research results, and also on the limitations of any gaze-enabled or gaze-controlled interface. This tutorial is intended for anyone who wants to know more about how eye tracking systems compare in terms of data quality, how to calculate and report data quality for replicability of research results, and how to make well informed decisions about data exclusion. The tutorial will include both theoretical and practical instruction based on the methods and measures developed by the (EMRA/COGAIN Eye Data Quality Standardisation Committee). At the end of the tutorial, participants should be familiar with various measures of data quality and how to interpret them as well as gain practical experience with open source software designed for this purpose. We welcome researchers at all stages of their career and will include time to consult with teachers regarding your own research and data.

    The other two tutorials are "Eye-tracking and visualization" and "Mining Scanpath Sequences with R and TraMineR Packages: A Hands-On Introduction". For more information about the tutorials at ETRA please visit: http://etra.fxpal.com/2016/tutorials/

 

  • As part of ECEM 2013, EMRA offered four days of method workshops in the week preceding the main conference, from 7th to 10th August 2013, across a variety of topics to eye movement researchers and eye tracker developers. These workshops were taught by top experts in eye movement research from clinical research, oculomotor control, usability, UX, gaze interaction, eye movement analysis software, cognitive and neuropsychological measures from eye movements. Workshops were organised by Marcus Nystrom, Dan Witzner-Hansen and Fiona Mulvey. See here for more details.

External courses:

  • The LETA  (Lund Eye-Tracking Academy) is a three-day crash course given each February and September since 2006. It focusses on teaching how to think when running experiments with eye trackers. See here for more details.

  • COGAIN offers training and workshops related to communication through gaze interaction and attention aware interfaces, particularly as an assistive communication device. A list of resources including courses, self learning material, open source software and videos is available here.

  • 3rd International Workshop on Pervasive Eye Tracking and Mobile Eye-Based Interaction, PETMEI 2013, was organised as a dedicated conference track at ECEM 2013 in Lund, Sweden. Selected authors (based on review score) were invited to submit extended versions of their accepted papers for inclusion in a PETMEI special issue in the Journal of Eye Movement Research.
