ET4S 2018 – 3rd International Workshop on Eye Tracking for Spatial Research

January 14, 2018 in Zurich, Switzerland in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Location Based Services (LBS 2018)

Eye tracking has become a popular method for investigating research questions related to geographic information science. This includes studies on how people interact with geographic information systems, studies on how space is perceived in decision situations, and using gaze as an input mode for geographic human-computer interaction. The International Workshop on Eye Tracking for Spatial Research (ET4S) aims to bring together researchers from different areas who have a common interest in using eye tracking for research questions related to spatial information. The workshop should stimulate the exchange of ideas between the different areas, laying out a road-map for using eye tracking for spatial research.

After two successful ET4S workshops at COSIT'13 and GIScience'14, which also led to a successful double special issue in the Journal Spatial Cognition & Computation (vol. 17, issue 1-2), the 3rd edition of ET4S will be co-located with the 14th International Conference on Location Based Services (LBS 2018).

The focus theme of ET4S 2018 will be Location Based Services. This includes, e.g., studies on how people interact with LBS, as well as using gaze and eye movements as input method or contextual information in an LBS. Knowledge of how people interact with their surrounding environment and the information provided by LBS can help us, for instance, to design better systems and representations of such information, providing more accurate and personalized assistance. 

New this year, ET4s workshop will provide a demo session to give researchers the opportunity to showcase live demonstrations of research ideas and scientific or engineering contributions. Demos are intended to be interactive and present novel ideas, prototypes, or proof-of-concepts related to the focus of the ET4S workshop.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to 

-             Usability Analysis of LBS with Eye Tracking
-             Gaze-Aware Mobile Assistance
-             Navigation Studies and Eye Tracking
-             Gaze-Based Interaction with Visuo-Spatial Representations and Maps
-             Evaluation of Cartographic and other Spatial Visualizations with Eye Tracking
-             Visual Perception and Exploration of (Indoor and Outdoor) Space
-             Eye Tracking as a Tool for Spatial Cognition Research
-             Spatio-Temporal Analysis and Visualization of Eye Tracking Data
-             Eye Tracking in Traffic Research, Car Navigation, and Public Transport

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors should submit demo cases of working prototypes with a short abstract (1 page) clearly describing the novelty and distinguishing ideas of your project. The organizers of the workshop will make the decision on acceptance. 

All accepted demos will be included in the online proceedings (e-collection of the ETH Zurich Library, with DOI). 

Submissions should be prepared according to the LBS 2018 template and submitted through mail to [log in to unmask] Templates to be found at
