The Symposium on Communication by Gaze Interaction organized by the
COGAIN Association ( will be co-located with ETRA
2018, the ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking Research & Applications.
ETRA 2018 will take place in Warsaw, Poland, from June 14th to the

The COGAIN Symposium will be organized as a "special session" at 
ETRA. By combining our efforts with ETRA, we hope to encourage a 
broader exchange of knowledge and experiences amongst the 
communities of researchers, developers, manufacturers, and users 
of eye trackers.
We invite authors to prepare and submit papers and notes following
the same ETRA's ACM format (
Papers are up to 8 pages (+ 2 additional pages for references) and
Notes are up to 4 pages (+ 2 additional pages for references).
During the submission process to ETRA 2018, you will be asked if
you would like your paper to be presented at the COGAIN Symposium.
COGAIN and ETRA will share the same rigorous two-phase review
process, and accepted papers for the COGAIN Symposium will be
published as part of the ETRA 2018 ACM Proceedings.
The COGAIN Symposium focuses on all aspects of gaze interaction, 
from general computer applications and gaze estimation systems to 
basic eye movement research that are related or might have impact 
on understanding and improving human communication with other 
humans and human interaction with machines. The symposium will 
present advances in these areas, leading to new capabilities in gaze
interaction, gaze enhanced applications, gaze contingent devices
etc. Topics of interest include all aspects of gaze interaction and
communication by gaze including, but not limited to

    * Eye-controlled assistive technology
    * Eye-typing
    * Gaze interfaces for wearable computing
    * Gaze-contingent devices
    * Gaze-aware applications
    * Gaze-enhanced games
    * Gaze interaction with mobile devices
    * Gaze interaction in virtual and augmented environments
    * Gaze interaction paradigms
    * Usability and UX evaluation of gaze-based interfaces
    * User context estimation from eye movements
    * 3D gaze interaction

The three best papers nominated by the Program Committee and selected
for presentation at the COGAIN Symposium  will be announced at as soon as the full program becomes
available. The COGAIN 2018 best paper award will be announced
at the conference dinner.
