1st International Mobile Gaze-Based Interaction Challenge (MobiGaze 2013)

I would like to invite you to join the growing community of researchers
discussing and defining tasks, benchmarks and data sets for the upcoming

1st International Mobile Gaze-Based Interaction Challenge (MobiGaze 2013)


What is MobiGaze?

Mobile gaze-based interaction has gained increased interest in recent years with the advent of mobile eye tracking equipment and an increase in portable processing power. The eyes can now be used as an interaction modality in mobile settings, either on their own or complementing other modalities, such as speech or gestures.

Mobile gaze-based interaction requires an interdisciplinary effort, combining the strengths of fields such as computer vision, human-computer-interaction, pervasive computing, as well as psychology and psycholinguistics – just to name a few.

With the MobiGaze challenge, we creating a focal point for these efforts by identifying central research questions and challenges as well as typical tasks and application scenarios and cast the essence into a set of benchmarks that help us to advance research in this emerging field.

We invite you, as part of the community, to participate in the process of defining the challenge.
