4th International Workshop on Pervasive Eye Tracking and Mobile 
Eye-Based Interaction (PETMEI 2014)
- in conjunction with UbiComp 2014

You are cordially invited to submit original work at the PETMEI 2014 
Workshop. The workshop will be held in Seattle on September 13th, 2014.

Location: Seattle, United States
Date: September 13th, 2014

- Abstract Submission: June 3, 2014
- Paper Submission: June 10, 2014
- Notification of Acceptance: June 24, 2014
- Camera-ready due: July 1, 2014
- Workshop: September 13, 2014

Despite considerable advances over the last decades, previous work on 
eye tracking and eye-based human-computer interfaces mainly developed 
use of the eyes in traditional desktop settings. Latest developments in 
remote and headmounted eye tracking equipment and automated eye movement 
analysis point the way toward unobtrusive eye-based human-computer 
interfaces that will become pervasively usable in everyday life. With 
the growth of interest in smart glass devices and low-cost eye trackers, 
gaze-based techniques for mobile computing is becoming increasingly 
important in recent years. We call this new paradigm pervasive eye 
tracking – continuous eye monitoring and analysis 24/7.

The potential applications for the ability to track and analyse eye 
movements anywhere and any time call for new research to further develop 
and understand visual behaviour and eyebased interaction in daily life 
settings. PETMEI 2014 will focus on pervasive eye tracking as a 
trailblazer for mobile eye-based interaction and eye-based 
context-awareness. We provide a forum for researchers from 
human-computer interaction, context-aware computing, egocentric computer 
vision and eye tracking to discuss techniques and applications that go 
beyond classical eye tracking and stationary eye-based interaction. We 
want to stimulate and explore the creativity of these communities with 
respect to the implications, key research challenges, and new 
applications for pervasive eye tracking in ubiquitous computing. The 
long-term goal is to create a strong interdisciplinary research 
community linking these fields together and to establish the workshop as 
the premier forum for research on pervasive eye tracking.

Topics of interest cover computational methods, new applications and use 
cases, as well as eye tracking technology for pervasive eye tracking and 
mobile eye-based interaction. Topics of interest include, but are not 
limited to:

We invite participants to reflect on the specific characteristics of 
pervasive eye tracking systems and to contrast them with classical 
methods for eye tracking, eye movement analysis, eye-based interaction, 
and evaluation. We welcome contributions reporting on methodological 
advances on all components of mobile eye tracking systems, and the 
workshop will also cover latest technological advances in mobile eye 
tracking equipment.
- Eye tracking technologies for mobile devices
- Tools for face, eye detection and tracking
- Gaze and eye movement analysis methods
- Integration of pervasive eye tracking and context-aware computing
- Multi-modal sensor fusion
- User studies on pervasive eye tracking
- Devices for portable, wearable and ambient eye tracking

In addition to contributions reporting on methodological advances we 
also want to attract submissions that explore innovative applications of 
pervasive eye tracking and mobile eye-based interaction. We also want to 
particularly invite presentations on research on egocentric vision 
systems and gazerelated computer vision applications that can 
potentially extend the possibility of current mobile gaze interaction.
- Pervasive eye-based interaction
- Mobile attentive user interfaces
- Eye-based activity and context recognition
- Security and privacy for pervasive eye-tracking systems
- Eye tracking for specialized application areas
- Eye-based human-robot and human-agent interaction
- Cognition-aware systems and user interfaces
- Human factors in mobile eye-based interaction
- Egocentric computer-vision systems and applications

Prospective authors should submit notes with a maximum length of four 
pages or full papers with a maximum length of six pages. In addition to 
research papers we explicitly invite submissions of position papers and 
papers that describe preliminary results or work-in-progress. All 
submissions should be prepared according to the SIGCHI archival format 
(double column, PDF). Manuscripts will be reviewed by at least two 
reviewers. Accepted papers will be published in the UbiComp 2014 
supplemental proceedings. In addition, printed proceedings will be 
distributed to the participants during the workshop. We also plan to 
publish extended versions of selected papers in an edited book or a 
special issue of a journal or magazine.
