Now that the ARVO and VSS deadlines have passed, I would like to encourage you 
to also submit your eye-tracking research to the 2006 Eye Tracking Research & 
Applications Symposium (ETRA). The deadline for submitting an abstract to the 
Late Breaking Results (LBR) venue is December 15th, which is rapidly 
approaching. Research focused on the scientific study of visual attention / 
eye movements, eye tracking applications, gaze-based human computer 
interaction, or fundamental eye-tracking technology is welcomed. The LBR 
format will be poster presentation, but the most highly rated abstracts will 
also be scheduled for short talks. All abstracts will be published in the ETRA 
proceedings which will made available through the ACM Digital Library. 

ETRA is the premiere North American conference focused on eye tracking 
research and application. ETRA is a multidisciplinary venue that brings 
together computer scientists, engineers and behavioral scientists in support 
of a common vision of enhancing eye tracking research and applications. ETRA 
also provides a unique opportunity to see and compare numerous commercial eye 
tracking systems offered by national and international vendors.

                 Call for Participation

                     Sponsored by
             ACM SIGCHI and ACM SIGGRAPH


ETRA 2006 will be the fourth biennial symposium in a series focused
on all aspects of eye movement research across a wide range of disciplines.
The goal of ETRA is to bring together computer scientists, engineers
and behavioral scientists in support of a common vision of enhancing
eye tracking research and applications.


Advances in Eye-Tracking Technology
  Eye-tracking systems, software, and algorithms, Eye movement analysis
  techniques and predictive models

Visual Attention and Eye Movement Control
  Studies of eye movement guidance during natural stimuli and behaviors,
  driving, web surfing, Usability studies

Eye Tracking Applications
  Gaze-contingent displays, Attentive user interfaces, Human computer
  interfaces, Assistive technologies

Special Theme: Communication by Gaze Interaction
  Human computer interaction using eye movements is a rapidly growing
  research topic that is now coming into fruition due to recent advances
  making eye tracking less expensive and intrusive.  We invite submissions
  that explore eye movements as a communication modality, especially
  assistive technologies that benefit people with disabilities.


Late-Breaking Results must be submitted electronically through the
ETRA submission website <> and conform
to the ACM SIGGRAPH proceedings category 4 format.  Late-Breaking
Results submissions will consist of a one-page abstract.  Given the time
constraints of this format, submissions must be made in camera-ready format
including authors names and affiliations.  Accepted submissions will be
published in the ETRA 2006 proceedings.  Authors will present a poster at
the conference.  The most highly rated submissions will be selected for
additional presentation as a short talk (10 minutes) in a Late Breaking
Results session.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the program committee.
The most highly ranked presentations will receive awards of excellence.
