Technological advances in computer vision algorithms and sensor hardware have greatly reduced the implementational and financial costs of eye tracking. 
Thus, it is unsurprising to witness a significant increase in its use as a research tool in fields beyond the traditional domains of biological vision, psychology, and neuroscience, in particular, in visualization and human-computer interaction research. One of the key challenges lies in the analysis, interaction, and visualization of complex spatio-temporal datasets of gaze behavior, which is further complicated by complementary datasets such as semantic labels, user interactions and/or accompanying physiological sensor recordings. Ultimately, the research objective is to allow eye tracking data to be effectively interpreted in terms of the observer¡¯s decision-making and cognitive processes. To achieve this, it is necessary to draw upon our current understanding of gaze-behavior across various and related fields, from vision and cognition to visualization.

The technical and financial aspects of recording of eye movement data are not a big issue anymore¡ªwith low-cost eye tracking devices being widely available. 
We have seen a large increase in research and papers related to eye tracking. However, the analysis, interaction, and visualization of such gaze data¡ªalong with additionally attached data from the stimulus or further physiological sensor recordings¡ªbecomes a challenging factor in this emerging discipline. 
Also, from the human-computer interaction and the cognitive science perspective, many aspects have to be focused on integrating the human behavior and the decision-making and thinking processes. All together make eye tracking an important field to be understood, be it in the sense of data analysis and visualization, interaction, or user-based evaluation of visualization.

Manuscripts are solicited on the following topics with an emphasis on the relationship between eye tracking and visualization, including but not limited to the following:

? 	Visualization and visual analytics techniques for eye-movement data (inc. spatio-temporal visualization, evolution of gaze patterns, visual analysis of individual behavior, 2D vs. 3D representations of eye-movement data)
?       Visual analytics of gaze behavior (inc. visual data mining, aggregation, clustering techniques, and metrics for eye-movement data)
?       Eye-movement data provenance
?       Standardized metrics for evaluating gaze interactions with visualization
?       Cognitive models for gaze interactions with visualizations
?       Novel methods for eye tracking in challenging visualization scenarios
?       Uncertainty visualization of gaze data
?       Interactive annotation of gaze and stimulus data
?       Systems for the visual exploration of eye-movement data
?       Eye-tracking studies that evaluate visualization or visual analytics
?       Eye tracking in non-WIMP visualization environments, including mobile eye tracking, mobile devices, virtual environments, mixed reality, and large displays
?       Visualization applications that rely on eye tracking as an input parameter

Authors are invited to submit original work complying with the ETRA NOTES format (up to 4 pages + 2 pages references).
Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format to ETVIS through the ETRA submission system:

Also ensure that the Author Guidelines ( for SIG sponsored events [sigconf]) are met prior to submission.
