Discussion: Format of ETIZ meeting
Everyone interested in eye tracking research is invited to the following talk:
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Andrew Duchowski (Clemson University, SC, USA)
Title: Eye Movement Synthesis
Place: ETH Zurich Science City Hönggerberg, HIL D 53
Date, time: Tuesday, 5th April 2016, 5.00 pm
After the talk you are cordially invited to an apéro in room HIL D 55.2.
Abstract: In this talk I will go over the eye movement simulation project being conducted at Clemson (and partially at ETH Zürich). The goal is to generate gaze data ground truth with which to validate different filtering approaches as well as to produce realistic eye movement animations. The focus of the project is to develop a procedural (stochastic) model of microsaccadic jitter.
Our Winter School on “Eye Tracking – Experimental Design, Implementation, and Analysis” is over. We were able to attract 61 participants, 5 speakers, plus several sponsor representatives.
In one keynote (Anke Huckauf), three lecture parts and three hands-on sessions (I. Scott MacKenzie, Andrew Duchowski, Izabela Krejtz, and Krzysztof Krejtz) participants learned about the whole cycle of performing eye tracking experiments, starting from experimental design, over data collection and processing, to the statistical analysis.
The conference center on Monte Verità (Ascona, Switzerland) offered an at the same time productive and enjoyable atmosphere with high quality food and service.
Thanks to all who have made this possible, especially our speakers and Congresso Stefano Franscini!
The PETMEI 2015 workshop at UbiComp, which Peter Kiefer has co-organized, took place on September, 7 in Osaka (Japan). There were 6 presentations, a keynote by Ali Borji, a demo, and a group work session, all with very active participation and interesting discussions. The workshop ended with a workshop dinner in a restaurant with food from the Okinawa region, and some participants continued to a Japanese Karaoke bar.
All in all, it has been a stimulating, fascinating and enjoyable event. Thanks to all participants, co-organizers, and sponsors!
The registration for our ETH Zurich Winter School on Eye Tracking – Experimental Design, Implementation, and Analysis is now open. Please also check out opportunities for funding through travel grants!

We are co-organizing an ETH Winter School on “Eye Tracking – Experimental Design, Implementation, and Analysis” which is going to take place in Monte Verità (Ticino), Switzerland, from 17 to 22 January 2016.
The Winter School targets at PhD students and early PostDocs (coming from any research field) who are using, or planning to use, eye tracking in their research. Internationally recognized experts will provide lectures and hands-on sessions on eye tracking methodology, experimental design, and analysis.
We are co-organizing a workshop at the UbiComp conference: the workshop on “Pervasive Eye Tracking and Mobile Eye-Based Interaction“ (PETMEI 2015). The workshop is concerned with eye tracking and gaze-based interaction in mobile and everyday (“ubiquitous”) situations, such as in pedestrian navigation.
