About the conference

Take the opportunity to meet experts and researchers and learn how they have used eye tracking in their research. There will be an interesting line up of speakers, as well as a hands-on session with eye tracking technology, for both beginner and advanced users. Eye tracking gives accurate pupillometry data, enabling various fields of studies to leverage the connection between pupil dilation and cognitive function.

How to attend

The conference takes place at the University Leipzig, both day 1 and 2 are in-person. Day 1 can also be streamed online.
