Call for Papers: 1st Workshop on Eye Tracking Techniques, Applications and Challenges (ETTAC 2020)

Milan, Italy, January 10, 2021

in conjunction with ICPR 2020, the 25th International Conference on Pattern Recognition (


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 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


Submissions must be formatted in accordance with the Springer’s Computer Science Proceedings guidelines ( Two types of contributions are possible:

  • Full papers (12-15 pages, including references)
  • Short papers (6-8 pages, including references)

Accepted manuscripts will be included in the ICPR 2020 Workshop Proceedings Springer volume. The submission platform will be available soon.
