SMI Programming Competition

SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) and ECEM are delighted to call for contributions to the 2015 eye-tracking programming competition.

The call is open for newly developed eye-tracking software, and software covering eye-movement research, and/or eye tracking data analysis. The possible applications may cover a variety of fields, such as human computer interaction, event detection algorithms, visualisation and analysis of eye movements, or even entirely novel applications.

The finalists of the competition will attend ECEM 2015 (admission fees will be sponsored) and present their developed software at the conference.

Please note, that the finalists will have to take care of (and pay for) their own travel arrangements and accommodations.
