CFP :: EyeWear 2018

Second Workshop on Eye Wear Computing
Intelligent glasses, head-mounted displays, egocentric vision devices, and similar “smart
eyewear” have recently emerged as interesting research platforms 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 workshop:

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 nonarchival
Extended Abstracts template (landscape format)) to the organizers about their research.
All submissions should be sent as PDF to [log in to unmask] with "EyeWear 2018
