The Symposium on Communication by Gaze Interaction organized by the 
COGAIN Association ( will be co-located with ETRA 
2020 (, the ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking 
Research & Applications. ETRA 2020 will take place in Stuttgart, 
Germany, from June 2nd to the 5th.
Founded in 2008 as a continuation of the COGAIN Project (a network of 
excellence supported by the European Commission’s IST 6th framework 
program from 2004 to 2009), the COGAIN Association aims to promote 
research and development in the field of gaze-based interaction in 
computer-aided communication and control.

The COGAIN Symposium will be organized as a special session at ETRA. By 
combining our efforts with ETRA, we hope to encourage a broader exchange 
of knowledge and experiences amongst the communities of researchers, 
developers, manufacturers, and users of eye trackers.

We invite authors to prepare and submit papers and notes following the 
same ETRA's ACM format (
Papers, up to 8 pages (+ 2 additional pages for references), can be 
submitted through the link 
(select the COGAIN track from the drop down list). Accepted articles 
will be published as adjunct ACM proceedings of ETRA 2020.

The COGAIN Symposium focuses on all those aspects of gaze interaction 
which have a clear connection with eye-controlled assistive technology. 
Thanks to its strong identity, the symposium will be the right venue to 
present advances in these areas, leading to new capabilities in gaze 
interaction, gaze enhanced applications, gaze contingent devices, etc. 
Unless the main focus is on assistive technology, the authors must 
clearly state how the paper advances or is linked with eye-controlled 
assistive technology. Topics of interest include, but are not limited 
to, the following subjects:

     * Eye-typing
     * Gaze-contingent devices
     * Gaze-enhanced games
     * Gaze-controlled robots and vehicles
     * Gaze interaction with mobile devices
     * Gaze-controlled smart-home devices
     * Gaze interfaces for wearable computing
     * Gaze interaction in 3D (VR/AR/MR & real world)
     * Gaze interaction paradigms
     * Usability and UX evaluation of gaze-based interfaces
     * User context estimation from eye movements
     * Gaze-supported multimodal interaction (gaze with multitouch, 
mouse, gesture, etc.)
