PLEY - Eye Tracking in Games and Play Workshop

June 2, 2020 Stuttgart, Germany | Co-located with ETRA 2020
Paper Submission Deadline: February 20 , 2020

Among the many application areas of eye tracking, games have become an 
increasingly popular domain for leveraging this technology to 1) build 
new and novel experiences for players and 2) to gain a better 
understanding of players’ cognitive processes during gameplay. Games, 
however, pose unique challenges for using gaze technology due to their 
complex, dynamic, and sometimes very fast-paced environments. This 
workshop specifically targets the unique challenges of using, gathering, 
and analyzing eye tracking data faced in gaming. The workshop is of 
particular interest for researchers in game design, human-computer 
interaction, eye tracking, data science, and visualization. We want to 
establish a shared venue for this diverse community to enhance the 
current state-of-the-art and help develop the community further.

This workshop specifically targets the unique challenges of using, 
gathering, and analyzing eye tracking data faced in gaming. We take a 
broad and inclusive perspective on gaming, considering video and PC 
gaming, hybrid board games, life-action role-playing games (LARPs), and 
virtual and augmented reality game-based applications, which all offer 
unique challenges and opportunities for gaze interaction and analysis
