                         ETRA 2006
           Eye Tracking Research & Applications
                     Symposium 2006
          27-29 March 2006, San Diego, CA, USA
                  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.


Two categories of submissions are being sought: Full Papers and Late-Breaking

Full papers must be submitted electronically through the ETRA submission
website: <> and conform to the ACM SIGGRAPH
proceedings category 2 format.  Full papers submission can be a maximum
length of eight pages.  Full papers submissions should be made in double-
blind format, hiding authors names and affiliations and all references to
the authors previous work.  Accepted papers will be published in the
ETRA 2006 proceedings.  Authors will present a full talk (20 minutes) at
the conference.

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 full paper and late-breaking results presentations
will receive awards of excellence.
