VSS Symposium "New VR & Immersive Eye Tracking Tools and their Implications for Vision Science Research"
Join SMI symposium exploring the power of immersive environments in vision science research.
Coinciding with the Annual Meeting of the Vision Sciences Society in St Pete Beach, Florida next month, SMI is proud to welcome three highly respected guest speakers to its special symposium “New VR & Immersive Eye Tracking Tools and their Implications for Vision Science Research”.
Prof Mary Hayhoe (University of Texas) is a long-term user of VR headsets with eye tracking. She specializes in eye movements and visual cognition and will speak about scene memory and the value of using virtual environments.
Prof Gabriel Diaz (Rochester Institute of Technology) focuses his research on the visual guidance of action using VR headsets with eye tracking. He will talk about studying eye movements within the unrestrained viewing of an immersive environment and his vital work into the development of tools to classify and analyse gaze events in 3D environments.
Prof Stephen Macknik (SUNY Downstate Medical Center) will speak about his eye movement research in aviator simulation studies and how this research will evolve with the growth of VR headsets as research tools.Event website
