  CALL FOR PAPERS
------------------------------------------------------------

PETMEI 2011 - 1st International Workshop on Pervasive Eye Tracking
and Mobile Eye-Based Interaction
September 18, 2011 in Beijing, China

http://www.petmei.org/

in conjunction with the
13th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp 2011)

Recent developments in mobile eye tracking equipment and automated eye
movement analysis point the way toward unobtrusive eye-based human-computer
interfaces that are pervasively usable in everyday life. We call this new
paradigm pervasive eye tracking – continuous eye monitoring and analysis
24/7. The potential applications for the ability to track and analyse eye
movements anywhere and any time call for new research to further develop
and understand visual behaviour and eye-based interaction in daily life
settings.

PETMEI 2011 will focus on pervasive eye tracking as a trailblazer for
mobile eye-based interaction and eye-based context-awareness. We provide a
forum for researchers from human-computer interaction, context-aware
computing, and eye tracking to discuss techniques and applications that go
beyond classical eye tracking and stationary eye-based interaction. We want
to stimulate and explore the creativity of these communities with respect
to the implications, key research challenges, and new applications for
pervasive eye tracking in ubiquitous computing. The long-term goal is to
create a strong interdisciplinary research community linking these fields
together and to establish the workshop as the premier forum for research on
pervasive eye tracking.

------------------------------------------------------------
  TOPICS
------------------------------------------------------------
Topics of interest cover computational methods, new applications and use
cases, as well as eye tracking technology for pervasive eye tracking and
mobile eye-based interaction. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

Methods
    * Computer vision tools for face, eye detection and tracking
    * Pattern recognition/machine learning for gaze and eye movement
      analysis
    * Integration of pervasive eye tracking and context-aware computing
    * Real-time multi-modality sensor fusion
    * Techniques for eye tracking on portable devices
    * Methods for long-term gaze and eye movement monitoring and analysis
    * Gaze modelling for development of conversational agents
    * Evaluation of context-aware systems and interfaces
    * User studies on impact of and user experience with pervasive eye
      tracking
    * Visual and non-visual feedback for eye-based interfaces
    * Interaction techniques including multimodal approaches
    * Analysis and interpretation of attention in HCI
    * Dual and group eye tracking

Applications
    * Mobile eye-based interaction with public displays, tabletops, and
      smart environments
    * Eye-based activity and context recognition
    * Pervasive healthcare, e.g. mental health monitoring or rehabilitation
    * Autism research
    * Daily life usability studies and market research
    * Mobile attentive user interfaces
    * Security and privacy for pervasive eye tracking systems
    * Eye tracking in automotive research
    * Eye tracking in multimedia research
    * Assistive systems, e.g. mobile eye-based text entry
    * Mobile eye tracking and interaction for augmented and virtual reality
    * Eye-based human-robot and human-agent interaction
    * Cognition-aware systems and user interfaces
    * Human factors in mobile eye-based interaction
    * Eye movement measures in affective computing

Technologies
    * New devices for portable and wearable eye tracking
    * Extension of existing systems for mobile interaction

  SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
------------------------------------------------------------
Prospective authors should submit notes with a maximum length of four
pages or full papers with a maximum length of six pages. In addition to
research papers we explicitly invite submissions of position papers and
papers that describe preliminary results or work-in-progress. All
submissions should be prepared according to the SIGCHI archival
format (double column, PDF).

Submissions have to be anonymised to facilitate double blind review.
Authors should take care throughout their paper that their and their
institution’s identity is not revealed. However, relevant references to
an author’s previous research (which may be required for reviewers to
understand and evaluate the paper’s contribution) should not be
suppressed but instead referenced in a neutral way. Submissions should
contain no information that will be proprietary or confidential at the
time of publication.

Submissions must not have been previously published or be under
simultaneous review for any other conference, journal, workshop or
other publication with an ISBN, ISSN, or DOI number.

Manuscripts will be reviewed by at least two members of the program
committee. Accepted papers will be published in the UbiComp 2011
supplemental proceedings. In addition, printed proceedings will be
distributed to the participants during the workshop. We plan to publish
extended versions of selected papers for an edited book or a special
issue of a journal or magazine.
