Special Issue Appearing: Spatial Cognition&Computation 17 (1-2)

A double Special Issue on “Eye Tracking for Spatial Research” in Spatial Cognition&Computation, guest-edited by Peter, Ioannis, Martin, and Andrew Duchowski, has appeared [URL].

Nineteen manuscripts were submitted to an open Call for Submissions, out of which seven were finally accepted after a rigorous review process.

The Special Issue commences with an overview article, authored by the Guest Editors: “Eye tracking for spatial research: Cognition, computation, challenges” [URL, PDF].

ETH Zurich Research Grant

Great news right before the holiday season!

ETH Zurich will support our research on “Location-Aware Mobile Eye Tracking for Tourist Assistance” (LAMETTA) with an ETH Zurich Research Grant for a 3-year project, starting in 2015 (PI: Peter Kiefer).

The project will pioneer gaze-based interaction techniques for tourists in outdoor environments. The project envisions mobile assistance systems that trigger information services based on the user’s gaze on touristic areas of interest. For instance, a gaze-based recommender system could notify the observer of a city panorama about buildings that match her interest, given the objects she has looked at before. The main objective of this project consists in the investigation of novel gaze-based interaction methods for tourists exploring a city panorama.

Stay tuned for updates on LAMETTA!
