Pervasive Eye Tracking and Mobile Eye-Based Interaction at ECEM 2013


PETMEI 2013 – 3rd International Workshop on
Pervasive Eye Tracking and Mobile Eye-Based Interaction
August 13, 2013

organised as a dedicated conference track at the

17th European Conference on Eye Movements (ECEM 2013) in Lund, Sweden

Selected authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their
accepted papers for inclusion in a PETMEI special issue in the
Journal of Eye Movement Research (http://www.jemr.orgVISION AND GOALS

Despite considerable advances over the last decades, previous work on eye tracking and eye-based human-computer interfaces mainly developed use of theeyes in traditional (“desktop”) settings that involved single user, singledevice and WIMP-style interactions. Latest developments in remote and head-mounted eye tracking equipment and automated eye movement analysis point the way toward unobtrusive eye-based human-computer interfaces that will become 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 at any time call for interdisciplinary research to further understand and develop visual behaviour for pervasive eye-based human-computer interaction in daily life settings.

PETMEI 2013 will focus on pervasive eye tracking as a trailblazer for pervasive eye-based interaction and eye-based context-awareness. We provide a forum for researchers from human-computer interaction, context-aware computing,psychology, and eye tracking to discuss techniques and applications that go beyond classical eye tracking and stationary eye-based interactions. 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. 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 and pervasive eye-based user interfaces.


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

– Computer vision tools for face, eye detection and tracking
– Pattern recognition/machine learning for gaze and eye movement
– 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
– Gaze modeling for development of conversational agents
– Evaluation of context-aware systems and interfaces
– User studies on impact of and user experience with pervasive eye
– 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


– Pervasive eye-based interaction with public displays, tabletops, and smart environments
– Eye-based activity and context recognition

– 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

Prospective authors should submit short papers with a maximum length of six pages or full papers with a maximum length of 10 pages. In addition to research papers we explicitly invite submissions of position papers and papers that describe preliminary results or work-in-progress. The submission should be prepared using the JEMR templates (see below: double column, PDF). An additional video submission is optional but strongly encouraged to help reviewers to assess the contribution of the work.
