=========================================================

SUBMISSION CATEGORIES

Papers and Notes:

Authors are invited to submit original work in the formats of Papers (Up to 8 pages + 2 additional pages for references) and Notes (Up to 4 pages + 2 pages references). A Paper should provide substantial contribution to the field and a Note should provide focused and concise, yet significant contribution while not delving into broad discussion.

All submissions will undergo a rigorous review process assessing the originality and quality of the work as well as the relevance for eye tracking research and applications. Papers presented at ETRA 2018 will be available in the ACM digital library. Papers and Notes will be presented as oral and/or poster presentations at the conference. At least one author needs to attend the conference. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their work for publication in a journal special issue.

ACM ETRA employs a two-phase review process with a rebuttal phase and conditional acceptance. Before the final decision, authors will have the opportunity to respond to reviews. Given the outcome of the review process, authors may be invited to resubmit a revised paper along with a rebuttal. In some cases, papers may be asked to be resubmitted in shortened form.

All papers and notes submissions must be appropriately anonymized to conceal the authors’ identifies and institutions. This means that authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper. Also, please make sure that identifying information does not appear in the document’s meta-data (e.g., the ‘Authors’ field in your word processor’s ‘Save As’ dialog box). Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper is left to the authors’ discretion. We do expect that authors leave in citations to their previous work, so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account by the authors. Nonetheless, please avoid phrases such as “In this paper we build on top of our previous work presented in [reference]…” and, instead, use constructions such as “We extend the work presented in [reference]… “. Observe that you are allowed to extend anyone’s work, and only the first phrase reveals that you are the author of the previous work.

Companion Video: Both papers and notes can be submitted with a companion video. A video submission is not required, but encouraged to help clarify interaction with a gaze-based system, or give a better sense of particular gaze patterns which is not as easy to communicate with static images or textual descriptions. The aim of the video is to supplement the paper; acceptance to the conference will be based on the paper and not on the companion video. A submitted companion video cannot be larger than 100 MB. We recommend using MP4 format with H.264 codec. Most video production systems can encode in this format and most video applications are able to play it. If you use a different codec, you risk that reviewers might not be able to view the video clip and you will need to re-encode the video clip for the conference proceeding disc. As for the paper submission, the companion video needs to be blinded for peer review.

Doctoral Symposium:

ETRA 2018 will offer an ETRA Doctoral Symposium, where doctoral students will get an opportunity to meet other students and experienced researchers for feedback. We invite abstracts from doctoral students who have a defined topic in the area of eye tracking research and applications, and whose work is still in a phase where it can be influenced by the feedback received in the symposium. Participants will be selected based on a 2-page extended abstract describing the thesis work and its current status. Travel assistance through SIGCHI Student Travel Grants is available and/or volunteering work may be offered. Please refer to the long call for submissions for detailed information on the ETRA doctoral symposium.

Demo/video track:

Have a gaze interaction technique to share? Or want to show off how your new eye tracking method works? At ETRA 2018, we will have a demo/video session where researchers give demonstrations of their research or show videos of their work. We encourage new and exciting ideas that may not yet be fully tested. To take part in this session, we request a 2-page extended abstract to be submitted. If authors have a full or short paper accepted, no extended abstract is needed. If submitting a video presentation, the video is required. For demos, space will be provided for a poster display. Please refer to the long call for submissions for detailed information on the ETRA demo/video track.

Tutorials ETRA 2018:

Tutorials were introduced at ETRA 2016. ETRA 2018 will include a number of half-day or full-day tutorials, where experts in the field cover a topic related to eye movement or eye tracking research within the general theme of the conference. To align the topics with the interests of ETRA participants, we now welcome suggestions of both topics and teachers.

Please enter your suggestions through our online form at http://bit.ly/2rplwAU, before October 1, 2017.

=========================================================

SUBMISSION PROCESS

(For Papers & Notes and Demo/Video Tracks)

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Symposium on Communication by Gaze Interaction organized by the
COGAIN Association (http://cogain.org) 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 (http://etra.acm.org/2018/authors.html).
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
http://cogain2018.cogain.org as soon as the full program becomes
available. The COGAIN 2018 best paper award will be announced
at the conference dinner.
