----------------EMIPWS 2015 Call for Papers---------------
3rd International Workshop on Eye-Movements in Programming

The third international workshop on Eye Movements in Programming will 
focus on advancing the methodological, theoretical and applied aspects 
of eye-movements in programming. Previously we focused on understanding 
expert (2013) and novice (2014) source code reading behaviors, and we 
launched the first distributed data collection in this discipline. By 
analyzing the pre-shared datasets and discussion of bottom-up 
data-to-models approaches, the workshop produced new methods, tools and 
understanding of source code reading gaze patterns.

The third edition aims at investigating the opposite direction. We 
invite contributions departing from theoretical perspectives and grounds 
to present new hypotheses about gaze behaviour in comprehension, 
debugging, and other tasks of programming. These may include, but are 
not limited to, affective computing in programming, vision based models, 
readability, and new theories of program comprehension. Contributions 
are expected to present implications to industrial programming practice 
or programming education.

In preparation for the workshop session, participants submit a short 
paper (about two pages) discussing 'how various aspects of comprehension 
leave their trace in gaze'. All submissions will undergo a light review 
by the program committee. A technical workshop report including the 
position papers will be published. At the workshop we will discuss the 
proposed operationalizations of comprehension and how to validate them 
against the data gathered during the Distributed Collection of Eye 
Movement Data in Programming ( Furthermore, we 
will prepare a joint publication with the results.

To participate send an email to Roman Bednarik ([log in to unmask]). 
Participation is independent of attending ACM Koli Calling. Workshop 

Important dates:
- deadline for position papers: October 10, 2015

Position paper (about 2 pages):

Invited Topics: Models to data / Theoretical foundations of attention in 
programming/ How comprehension leaves its trace in gaze

The aim of the position papers is to discuss aspects of a cognitive 
model or process, a strategy, a certain element of program 
comprehension, etc. The arguments should be derived from literature 
(psychology, computer science etc.) or experience (e.g. teaching 
novices, working with programmers in industry).

Authors are encouraged to describe the model and operationalize it, so 
it is possible to validate the occurrences of this particular visual 
behavior in actual gaze data. At the workshop session, we will discuss 
how to evaluate the presented models on the dataset from the Distributed 
Data Collection; the dataset includes over a hundred of programmers of 
different expertise from total novice to expert with many years of 
professional experience reading Java (and Python).

Central questions:
• Given your model, who looks where for how long in what order? What 
patterns do you expect?
• Who: Novices or experts
• Where: Region on any abstraction level, e.g. signature - body, code 
categories like keywords and identifiers
• How long: e.g. a brief scan to gain an overview vs focused reading
• What order: e.g. reading starts at the first line or the main-method

Format of the submission: ACM 2 column format - (Option 2 for LaTeX)
