CfP: 7th Polish Eye Tracking Conference

Dear Friends and Colleagues!

We’re happy to announce that the 7th Polish Eye Tracking Conference, organized by Institute of Psychology at NCU in collaboration with the Leiden University and LELO, will take place on September 25-27, 2020, at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun, Poland. We really count on you, in terms of high quality submissions, your contribution to the open discussion. We will be extremely grateful for passing this invitation to your colleagues who may be interested in participation.

The aim of PKE7 is to bring eye tracking researchers together to present new ideas and state-of-the-art methods of research. The event will be accompanied by workshops aimed to broaden participants experience by hands-on work on real research problems.

All abstracts will be peer-reviewed and the abstract book will be published by Journal of Eye Movement Research <>
We encourage you to visit the conference website <> or read the full invitation below.

· Roy S. Hessels (postdoctoral researcher at Experimental Psychology, Helmholtz Institute and Developmental Psychology at Utrecht University, the Netherlands): In my research, I use eye-tracking to understand the role eye movements play in social interaction. For this, I use wearable eye trackers, and state-of-the-art dual eye-tracking setups. In addition, I have an interest in eye-tracking methodology, as I believe there is much to be gained to improve eye-tracking measurements in psychological research. If you want to know more, you are more than welcome to send me an email at <>
· Fred Mast (Head of Cognitive Psychology, Perception and Research Methods; Dean Human Sciences Faculty; Ordinarius): I am full professor at the University of Bern where I am directing the newly founded section "Cognitive Psychology, Perception, and Research Methods". My research is concerned with mental imagery, sensorimotor processing, and visual perception, and it is regularly funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (see more information <>).
· Maciej Szkulmowski (Associate Professor of the Institute of Physics, Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Applied Computer Science of the Nicolaus Copernicus University.). Polish physicist; specializes in optics, experimental physics, biophysics and medical physics. In his research, he deals with: ultrafast modulation of light beam aberrations to improve the parameters of imaging systems, interferometric imaging of the entire eyeball with the use of active optical elements, and the development of functional OCT tomography methods for imaging cells and tissues (see more <>).
· Jaana Simola completed her PhD in psychology in 2011 at the University of Helsinki. She has worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Neuroscience Center at University of Helsinki and as a visiting postdoc at University of Paris VIII, France. Her research concerns brain dynamics during active vision, i.e., how we sample our environment with eye movements and how we process emotional stimuli and task-irrelevant information. She also has a strong interest in fluctuations in spontaneous brain dynamics as well as pupil size and blinking. Jaana uses a wide range of methods including EEG, MEG, fMRI, eye tracking and psychophysics. Currently, she is a fellow at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies (HCAS).


We invite researchers from the fields of psychology, language sciences, cognitive sciences and computer sciences to present reflection on their research, which would shed light on the abovementioned problems. Topics may include but should not be limited to:
· research on cognitive processes,
· research on language development and education,
· applied linguistics,
· mixed methods integrating qualitative and quantitative data,
· eye tracking research methodology

We invite the following types of submissions:
1.     regular talks,
2.     posters.
See details: <>
All abstracts will be peer-reviewed and the abstract book published by Journal of Eye Movement Research <>

Travel Awards
Depending on available funding, we might have a limited number of travel awards for students and PhD candidates without funding, who proposed talks or posters of outstanding quality. More information on that should be posted on the conference website in April/May.

CfP: 1st Workshop on Eye Tracking Techniques, Applications and Challenges at ICPR2020

More details:

The 1st Workshop on Eye Tracking Techniques, Applications and Challenges (ETTAC 2020) will be held in conjunction with ICPR 2020 (25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition – Milan, Italy, September 13-18, 2020).

Eye tracking technology is becoming more and more widespread nowadays, also thanks to the recent availability of cheap commercial devices. At the same time, novel techniques are constantly pursued to improve the precision of gaze detection, and new ways to fully exploit the potential of eye data are continuously explored. Whatever the considered use context, be it Human-Computer Interaction, user behavior understanding, biometrics, or others, pattern recognition often plays a relevant role.

The purpose of the ETTAC workshop is to present recent eye tracking research that directly or indirectly exploits any form of pattern recognition. The event’s scope includes (but is not limited to) the following topics:

  • Gaze detection techniques and devices
  • Gaze-based human-computer interaction (assistive technologies, hybrid interfaces, etc.)
  • Eye tracking for usability inspection
  • Eye tracking in VR/AR applications
  • User behavior understanding from eye data
  • Eye movement analysis for biometrics, security and privacy
  • Eye tracking in medicine and health care
  • Visualization of gaze data

CfP: Special Session on Eye Movement Data Processing and Analysis at KES-2020

Dear Colleagues,

we would like to cordially invite you to submit your work to:

IV Special Session on Eye Movement Data Processing and Analysis

organized during
24th International Conference on Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Information & Engineering Systems KES-2020 (Core-B conference)

The series of EMDPA sessions aim to summarize the current state of the art in the eye movement data analysis and enable prospective researchers to present their new ideas concerning the eye movement analyses. The conference proceedings will be published in Elsevier’s Procedia Computer Science open access journal, available in ScienceDirect, and submitted to be indexed/abstracted in CPCi (ISI conferences and part of Web of Science), Engineering Index, and Scopus.

The scope of the workshop includes but is not limited to:

Collecting eye movement data
Accuracy and precision of data
Calibration of eye movement data signal
Events detection (fixations and saccades)
Gaze-based user interfaces
Eye movement modelling
Data mining of eye movement signal
