ET4S and ETRA 2019: Impressions

Our group has organized the “Eye Tracking for Spatial Research” event as a track at this year’s ETRA conference in Denver, Colorado. It featured four full paper presentations, one short paper presentation, as well as an invited talk (see program). A dominant topic at this year’s ET4S was augmented/mixed/virtual reality. As a particular highlight, our invited speaker Sophie Stellmach (Senior Scientist at Microsoft) highlighted the fascinating opportunities of HoloLens 2, an upcoming mixed reality device that will have eye tracking capabilities included.

The GeoGazeLab was further involved with Fabian’s talk on “POI-Track: Improving Map-Based Planning with Implicit POI Tracking” and Kuno presenting his work on “Space-Time Volume Visualization of Gaze and Stimulus” in the ETRA main program. A paper co-authored by Martin was presented by one of his co-authors (“Eye Tracking Support for Visual Analytics Systems: Foundations, Current Applications, and Research Challenges”).

 

The invited talk by Sophie Stellmach (Microsoft) …

 

… attracted quite some audience.

ET4S goes ETRA 2019

We’re glad to announce the 4th edition of the “Eye Tracking for Spatial Research” (ET4S) event which will take place June 25-28, 2019 in Denver, Colorado, USA.

After three successful ET4S workshops in Scarborough (2013), Vienna (2014) and Zurich (2018), the 4th edition of ET4S will be organized as a conference track at the “ACM 2019 Symposium on Eye Tracking Research & Applications in Denver” (ETRA)

ET4S aims to bring together researchers from different areas who have a common interest in using eye tracking for research questions related to spatial information and spatial decision making.

The Call for Papers is now available (Paper abstracts due: December 14, 2018).

3rd ET4S Workshop: Keynote by Roman Bednarik

We are glad to announce that the ET4S workshop 2018 will be opened with a keynote given by Roman Bednarik, an adjunct professor at the School of Computing, University of Eastern Finland:

 

Predicting user states from gaze and other multimodal data

Abstract: In this talk I will present research conducted by our team at UEF related to user state recognition during problem solving and other interactive contexts. We adapt and apply machine learning techniques to model behavioral and mental states, including action prediction and problem-solving state prediction.
