The Symposium on Communication by Gaze Interaction organized by the COGAIN Association ( will be co-located with ETRA 2021 (, the ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking Research & Applications. ETRA 2021 will take place (virtually) in Stuttgart, Germany, from May 25th to the 27th.

Founded in 2008 as a continuation of the COGAIN Project (a network of excellence supported by the European Commission’s IST 6th framework program from 2004 to 2009), the COGAIN Association aims to promote research and development in the field of gaze-based interaction in computer-aided communication and control.

The COGAIN Symposium will be co-located with ETRA 2021. By combining our efforts with ETRA, we hope to encourage a broader exchange of knowledge and experiences amongst eye tracking communities of researchers, developers, manufacturers, and users.


This year a special session is dedicated to the opportunities and challenges of gaze-based assistive technologies of the future. The advent of mobile computing devices and technologies such as VR and AR has increased the availability of eye tracking in many environments beyond the desktop. Research in this area has already demonstrated gaze-based interactions in smart home environments, mobile robotics, and e.g. wheelchairs or prostheses control. Thus, gaze-based assistive technologies have the potential to help people interact with various types of machines in everyday situations. We want to bring together people working towards this vision and foster this community. For the COGAIN Symposium 2021 we are particularly interested in position papers addressing these opportunities and challenges.


The COGAIN workshop focuses on all those aspects of gaze interaction which have a connection with eye-controlled assistive technology. Thanks to its strong identity, the symposium will be the right venue to present advances in these areas, leading to new capabilities in gaze interaction, gaze enhanced applications, gaze contingent devices, etc. Unless the main focus is on assistive technology, the authors must clearly state how the paper advances or is linked to eye-controlled assistive technology. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Eye-typing
  • Gaze-contingent devices
  • Gaze-enhanced games
  • Gaze-controlled robots and vehicles
  • Gaze interaction with mobile devices
  • Gaze-controlled smart-home devices
  • Gaze interfaces for wearable computing
  • Gaze interaction in 3D (VR/AR/MR & real world)
  • Gaze interaction paradigms
  • Usability and UX evaluation of gaze-based interfaces
  • User context estimation from eye movements
  • Gaze-supported multimodal interaction (gaze with multitouch, mouse, gesture, etc.)


One half of the COGAIN Symposium is dedicated to presentations and a discussion about the future of gaze-based assistive technologies, aimed at community building. Late-breaking research results are put forward in the second half of the symposium. As ETRA 2021 is a virtual event, presentations are expected to take place as pre-recorded videos to ensure high-level delivery and allow for asynchronous participation.

We invite authors to prepare and submit papers following ETRA’s ACM format ( For COGAIN, we are accepting Short Papers until February 20th and Position Papers until March 8th.

Short Papers can be up to 8 pages (single-column format, not counting references), and Position Papers up to 4 pages (single-column format, not counting references), can be submitted through PCS: (select the COGAIN track from the drop down list).

The Short Paper submissions are reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. All accepted Short papers will be published in ETRA’s short paper proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. We expect at least one author per submission to register for the conference.

Technological advances in computer vision algorithms and sensor hardware have greatly reduced the implementational and financial costs of eye tracking. 
Thus, it is unsurprising to witness a significant increase in its use as a research tool in fields beyond the traditional domains of biological vision, psychology, and neuroscience, in particular, in visualization and human-computer interaction research. One of the key challenges lies in the analysis, interaction, and visualization of complex spatio-temporal datasets of gaze behavior, which is further complicated by complementary datasets such as semantic labels, user interactions and/or accompanying physiological sensor recordings. Ultimately, the research objective is to allow eye tracking data to be effectively interpreted in terms of the observer’s decision-making and cognitive processes. To achieve this, it is necessary to draw upon our current understanding of gaze-behavior across various and related fields, from vision and cognition to visualization. All together eye tracking is an important field to be understood, be it in the sense of data analysis and visualization, interaction, or user-based evaluation of visualization.

Manuscripts are solicited on the following topics with an emphasis on the relationship between eye tracking and visualization, including but not limited to the following:

- Visualization techniques for eye-movement data (inc. spatio-temporal visualization, evolution of gaze patterns, visual analysis of individual behavior, 2D vs. 3D representations of eye-movement data)
 -  Visual analytics of gaze behavior (inc. visual data mining, aggregation, clustering techniques, and metrics for eye-movement data)
 -  Eye-movement data provenance
 -  Standardized metrics for evaluating gaze interactions with visualization
 -  Cognitive models for gaze interactions with visualizations
 -  Novel methods for eye tracking in challenging visualization scenarios
 -  Uncertainty visualization of gaze data
 -  Interactive annotation of gaze and stimulus data
 -  Systems for the visual exploration of eye-movement data
 -  Eye-tracking studies that evaluate visualization or visual analytics
 -  Eye tracking in non-WIMP visualization environments, including mobile eye tracking, mobile devices, and large displays
 -  Visualization of eye-tracking data in mixed and virtual reality (3df & 6df, 360°)
 -  Visualization applications that rely on eye tracking as an input parameter

Authors are invited to submit original work complying with the ETRA SHORT PAPER format (up to 4 pages + references).
Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format to ETVIS through the ETRA submission system:

Also ensure that the Author Guidelines ( for SIG sponsored events [sigconf]) are met prior to submission.

*Submission Guidelines *
We call for regular and work-in-progress papers. Your submissions should 
be prepared following the sigconf instructions. To prepare the content 
of the PDF file, SIGGRAPH encourages authors to use the following 
templates for LaTeX and Word, respectively: At least one 
author of each accepted ET4S paper must register for the ETRA conference.

/*Regular papers*/ should present original and novel work demonstrating 
advances in methodological, theoretical, experimental or practical 
aspects of ET4S topics on up to 6 pages (+2 pages maximum for references 
only). Regular papers are expected to present fully analyzed data or 
accomplished work. All accepted regular papers are presented orally at 
the ET4S event.

/*Work-in-progress papers*/ are suitable for work on ET4S-related topics 
in a stage beyond planning-only, but where feedback and discussion at 
the ET4S event can make a contribution (e.g., a pilot study for a 
planned study has been performed, or a conducted but not fully analyzed 
study). Work-in-progress papers can be up to 4 pages long (+2 pages 
maximum for references only). Work-in-progress papers will be presented 
at the ET4S event either with a short oral presentation or as a poster.

All papers should be submitted through Precision Conference (PCS, and are 
subject to a single review round. In PCS, please make sure you choose 
the track “ETRA 2020 Eye Tracking for Spatial Research (ET4S)“.
