Eye Tracking South Africa, an international conference aimed specifically at eye tracking research will be launched this year in Cape Town, South Africa. The conference will take place from 29-31 August 2013. Interact 2013 will follow directly after ETSA and will also be held in Cape Town. This gives delegates the opportunity to attend two international conferences in a single trip.

Exhibition space is available for the duration of the conference.

Special Interest/ Case Study Sessions for Practitioners

ETSA 2013 invites practitioners from any related discipline (Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Speech Therapy, Ophthalmology etc.) to present case study based sessions on their use of eye tracking with patients/clients. These need not represent formal research, and should be submitted in the format of a short paper under the Special Interest category.

Each paper will be anonymously reviewed by at least three reviewers.  The program committee will consider the following criteria when evaluating submitted papers: originality of contribution, relevance to the conference, technical/scientific merit, and presentation and clarity.

The proceedings will have an ISBN and published in the ACM Digital Library.  Authors will be expected to act as reviewers as well.  At least one author must be willing to attend and present the paper at the conference.
