Call for Papers: Eye Tracking South Africa 2013

Tanya Beelders posted the following call for papers:

Eye Tracking South Africa, an international conference aimed 
specifically at eye tracking research will be launched this year 
in Cape Town, South Africa. The conference will take place 
from 29-31 August 2013. Interact 2013 will follow directly after 
ETSA and will also be held in Cape Town. This gives delegates the 
opportunity to attend two international conferences in a single trip.

“Eyes on the Mountain” although this should not be seen as a 
restrictive requirement. Conference tracks will include but 
not limited to the following topics:

    Gaze interaction
    Reading research
    Eye Control for people with disabilities
    Visual attention
    Systems, tools and methods
    Eye movements
    Technical aspects of eye-tracking e.g. pupil detection, 
        calibration, mapping, event detection, data quality, etc.

Deadline for full papers: 30 April 2013.

Deadline for short papers and posters (abstracts): 15 June 2013

Researchers or industry are also invited to present a symposium or
