Reminder: Call for Papers for
COGAIN 2006 -- 'Gazing into the Future'

The COGAIN 2006 Conference on Communication by Gaze Interaction
Monday 4th and Tuesday 5th September 2006
Turin, Italy

Deadline for short paper submissions: 31st May 2006

The conference provides a unique focus on communication by eye-gaze. It
concentrates on the use of eye-gaze primarily for users with 
different types of
disabilities in the context of interacting with computer applications,
environment control and mobility. The conference has a strong involvement
with disabled users and forms a vital bridge between those who develop
gaze measurement and communication systems, those who research into
the construction and use, and those who actually use, or could use, the
systems. There is a strong emphasis in the conference on a range of
subjects from technical issues to disabled user requirements and usability

The conference will be run over two days:
Day 1 (Monday 4th September, 2006): Academic Sessions
Day 2 (Tuesday 5th September, 2006): User and Industry Sessions

The themes for the academic sessions  (Day1) are:
*   Eyetracking systems: low-cost systems, mobile systems, software,
     algorithms, calibration techniques and issues, integration with
     operating systems, standards.
*   Gaze-aware communication software: eye-typing systems, interfaces
     to common applications, end-user configuration, gaze-aware
     applications, edutainment.
*   Integration of gaze with other modalities: multimodal interaction, user
     performance and preference studies, attentive interfaces, gaze and
     brain integration.
*   Human factors and user-related issues: Requirements for various
     disabled user groups, measuring usability with disabled groups,
     usability issues with gaze-based systems, case studies of user
     experience with gaze communication, training in the use of gaze-

The user and industry sessions (Day 2) will follow a similar format to the
successful event held in Copenhagen during COGAIN 2005 Conference. The
sessions will contain presentations from users of gaze-based systems, from
representatives of end-user organizations and from industry, as well as
opportunities for end users and researchers to try out the latest systems from
the participating manufacturers. One of the most valuable aspects of last
year's meeting was the opportunity it gave the academic research community
and industry to meet, listen to, and observe users of gaze-based systems,
and to understand their priorities and needs for system design and use.
