Australian Eye-Tracking Conference 2018
Date: 26-28 April 2018
Time: 6.30pm – 7.30pm
Advances in eye-movement technology have allowed researchers to engage with previously impregnable research questions across diverse disciplines and areas, including developmental science, neuro-cognition, linguistics, communication, education, applied perspectives and clinical research. Progress in knowledge and technology, as well as ever-evolving methods of data analysis, are bringing new opportunities as well as challenges. These advances will be explored in depth at AusET2018, providing opportunities for researchers to discuss the latest approaches to eye-tracking research including various co-registration methods with neurophysiology and electrophysiology.
The conference will bring together international and local researchers from academia and industry to engage with eye-movement research, and encourage new collaborations across disciplines and institutions. This network of diverse backgrounds, expertise and methodologies will enhance innovation, and contribute to a dynamic future for eye-movement research.

How Grammar Creates Meaning
Date: 8 August 2018
Hear from Harvard Professor Gennaro Chierchia who is an Italian linguist and Haas Foundation Professor in the Department of Linguistics at Harvard University, USA. He is considered one of the world’s leading formal semanticists.
Humans communicate through language: verbal languages, or sign languages. How do words and sentences or gestures acquire meaning? One way to think about it is to view language as a labeling device: nouns are used as conventional labels for things (e.g., the English noun ‘table’ is a label for, well, tables) and verbs are labels for actions (e.g. ‘to break’ labels actions like demolishing, shattering, and the like); and in virtue of these conventional associations, sequences of words can be used to convey facts about the world, or to tell stories.
