Abstract

The 2019 Gordon Research Conference on Eye Movements is designed to bridge knowledge and insights across the diverse domains of eye movement investigation. Some sessions will focus on core topics of laboratory experiments. Other sessions will focus on clinical studies. New for the Gordon Research Conference on Eye Movements, the remaining sessions will form bridges with other domains of eye movement research from the fields of computer science, robotics, gaze control in non-primate species including invertebrates, and fields in which success is accompanied by expertise in eye movements. The selection of diverse topics, presented in serial talks that all participants attend, is designed to cut across sub-disciplinary silos, to attract a broad audience, and to foster novel collaborative efforts that will impact future eye movement research. Following an opening Keynote session with two talks by prominent investigators, each of the topics will be considered in eight sessions, consisting of four talks followed by a question and answer period. With the engagement of all participants, from the podium through the audience, illuminating, insightful, and inspiring debates animate each session. Returning to a favorite location, the meeting will be held at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. The university campus setting promotes a highly collegial and interactive environment within which the field-s best scientists and most promising trainees interact throughout the day. The 2019 GRC will once again be preceded by a Gordon Research Seminar (GRS), designed by and for the exclusive benefit of trainees and research associates. Together, the GRC and GRS constitute an immersive experience in which participants share ideas over meals and jointly participate in scheduled and unscheduled social activities. The format provides unparalleled opportunity for participants of all career stages to share their most novel findings, foster new collaborative efforts, and chart the future directions of oculomotor research.
