CFP :: EyeWear 2019
Third Workshop on Eye Wear Computing
Intelligent glasses, head-mounted displays, egocentric vision devices, and similar
“smart eyewear” have recently emerged as interesting research platform for a range of
research fields including, ubiquitous computing, computer vision, and social sciences.
As most of the human senses are situated on the head, we believe that these types of
devices have significant potential as a research and product platform for a wide range of
wearable assistive systems in human computer interaction. While early prototypes were
too bulky to be worn on a regular basis in daily life, new devices, such as Google Glass,
Holo Lense and J!NS Meme, look more and more like normal glasses, are light-weight,
and allow for long-term use enabling new interaction paradigms.
The proposed workshop will bring together researchers from a wide range of computing
disciplines, such as mobile and ubiquitous computing, eye tracking, optics, computer
vision, human vision and perception, privacy and security, usability, as well as systems
research. <>

Topics And Goals
Smart Eyewear can be a powerful enabling technology for a broad range of computer
science fields. We will tackle the following research problems and topics during the
Novel application cases: Which activities are the most useful for application cases that
have the most impact on society. What are the best application fields to apply Smart
Eyewear for the strongest impact on society?
Suitable Sensing and actuation technologies: Driven by the application cases which
sensing modalities are the most interesting to be integrated in Smart Eyewear? What
are the important activities to focus on (e.g. fatigue detection, concentration tracking)?
Impact and perils of long-term sensing: How can we use these real life recordings of
physical, physiological and cognitive signals on the head? What are potential negative
effects of long term usage, ranging from perceptual issues regarding the use of
wearable displays (binocular rivalry, vertical and horizontal gaze comfort, instrument
myopia, eye strain, accommodation-convergence mismatch) to potential skin irritations
during the deployment of electrodes, or other sensors necessary to touch the skin.
Towards an Open Eyewear Platform: How can we build up an international community
to share scientific results and work together on topics related to Smart Eyewear.
Especially when we discuss large scale, long monitoring of cognitive activities, we
believe a strong impact on psychology, sociology and cognitive science as eyewear
computing can be an enabling technology for them to become less model and more
data driven sciences utilizing real world setups instead of controlled but artificial
laboratory settings.

Workshop candidates are requested to send a position paper (4-6 pages in the ACM
SIGCHI non-archival Extended Abstracts template (landscape format)) to the organizers
about their research. All submissions should be sent as PDF to
