International Cartographic Conference 2013: Pre-Conference Workshop :: Eye tracking: why, when, and how?

23 (noon)-24 (all day) August 2013 @ the Technical University in Dresden, Germany

We cordially invite you to participate in a hands-on workshop on how to efficiently and effectively collect, analyze, and make sense of eye movement data in empirical user studies. We will work hands-on with real eye-trackers and real data during the workshop, and discuss issues in the group.

This workshop is intended to bring together a broad mix of researchers interested in eye movement data collection methods, ranging from the eye tracking novice who might wish to learn more about this empirical technique, to the seasoned eye tracking expert who wishes to share advanced analytical approaches with other like-minded empirical researchers. Part of the program will use parallel tracks to meet the needs of both novices and experts, and a ‘data challenge’ will form a key component of the meeting.

We thus encourage various avenues for involvement in this hands-on workshop, and call for the following contributions:

.. Short papers involving ~ Case studies and applications ~ Work in progress reports ~ Open problems ~ Demos and tools ~ Novel analysis techniques and methods

.. Responses to our data challenges ~ the organizers provide real eye-tracking datasets, together with analytical tasks by early December 2012. Three different data sets for the data challenge are available.

.. Different data sets and their descriptions are available here: ~ CogVis | ~ Geovis | ~ UUI |

Participation cost: 40 EUR (lunch on the first day is included in the workshop fee)

We expect your abstract containing a statement of interest, including the type of proposed contribution (ca. 1 page, PDF or MSWord) by FEB 1 2013.

Please send your contributions to: icacogvis [at] geo [dot] uzh [dot] ch (Subject: ICC13)

Notifications of acceptance: MAR 1, 2013.

Details about workshop, registration etc. will be published here, as they become available:
