 CALL FOR PAPERS

The ninth ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking Research & Applications (ETRA 2016)
will be held in Charleston, South Carolina, on March 14th-17th, 2016. The
ETRA conference series focuses on eye movement research and applications
across a wide range of disciplines.  The symposium presents research that
advances the state-of-the-art across multiple fields, leading to new
capabilities in gaze tracking systems, gaze aware applications, gaze based
interaction, and eye movement data analysis. For ETRA 2016, we invite
papers in all areas of eye tracking research and applications.

IMPORTANT DATES

Aug 1, 2015 Tutorial suggestion due

Sep 28, 2015   Paper abstracts due

Oct 9, 2015  Full & short papers due

Nov 18, 2015 Rebuttals to reviews due

Dec 18, 2015  Doctoral Symposium abstract due / Video & Demo submission due

Jan 13, 2016    Camera ready papers due

Mar 14-17, 2016 ETRA Conference 2016


RESEARCH AREAS OF INTEREST

*Eye Tracking Technology*

Advances in eye tracking hardware, software and algorithms such as: 2D and
3D eye tracking systems, calibration, low cost eye tracking, natural light
eye tracking, predictive models, etc.

*Eye Tracking Data Analysis*

Methods, procedures and analysis tools for processing raw gaze data as well
as fixations and gaze patterns. Example topics are: scan path analysis,
fixation detection algorithms, and visualization techniques of gaze data.

*Visual Attention and Eye Movement Control*

Applied and experimental studies investigating visual attention and eye
movements to gain insight in eye movement control, cognition and attention,
or for design evaluation of visual stimuli. Examples are: usability and web
studies using eye tracking, and eye movement behavior in everyday
activities such as driving and reading.

*Eye Tracking Applications*

Eye tracking as a human-computer input method, either as a replacement to
traditional input methods or as a complement. Examples are: assistive
technologies, gaze enhanced interaction and interfaces, multimodal
interaction, gaze in augmented and mixed reality systems, gaze-contingent
displays and gaze-based biometric applications.

SUBMISSION CATEGORIES

*Research papers:*

Authors are invited to submit original work in the formats of full paper (8
pages) and short paper (4 pages). The papers will undergo a rigorous review
process assessing the originality and quality of the work as well as the
relevance for eye tracking research and applications.  Papers presented at
ETRA 2016 will be available in the ACM digital library.  Submission formats
and further instructions are available at the conference web site.

Please submit an abstract by 11:59PM on Sep 18, 2015 and have your paper
completely submitted by 11:59PM on Oct 9, 2015. No extensions to this
deadline will be granted. Before final decision, authors will have the
opportunity to comment on the reviews . Given the outcome of the review
process, papers may be invited to resubmit a revised paper for an
additional review.  In some cases, full papers may be offered to be
resubmitted as a short paper.

*Doctoral Symposium:*

ETRA 2016 will offer an ETRA Doctoral Symposium, where doctoral students
get an  opportunity to meet other students and experienced researchers to
get feedback on their research in a friendly environment. We invite
abstracts from doctoral students who have a defined topic in the area of
eye tracking research and applications, and whose work is still in a phase
where it can be influenced by the feedback received in the symposium.
Participants will be selected based on a 2-page extended abstract
describing the thesis work and its current status.

*Demo/video track:*

Have a gaze interaction technique to share? Or want to show off how your
new eye tracking method works? At ETRA 2016, we will have a demo/video
session where researchers give demonstrations of their research or show
videos of their work. To take part in this session, we request a 2-page
extended abstract to be submitted. If authors have a full or short paper
accepted, no extended abstract is needed. If submitting for a video
presentation, the video is required.

*Tutorials NEW ETRA 2016:*

ETRA 2016 will include a number of half-day or full-day tutorials, where
experts in the field cover a topic related to eye movement or eye tracking
research within the general theme of the conference. To align the topics
with the interests of ETRA participants, we now welcome suggestions of both
topics and teachers. Please enter your suggestions through this link,
goo.gl/K0M4jE, before August 1st, 2015.


CONFERENCE VENUE

ETRA 2016 will be held at the historic Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston,
South Carolina.


SPONSORSHIP

ETRA 2016 is co-sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group in
