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 17th.

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.
