ETRA 2006

ETRA 2006
Eye Tracking Research & Applications
Symposium 2006
27-29 March 2006, San Diego, CA, USA
Call for Participation

Sponsored by


ETRA 2006 will be the fourth biennial symposium in a series focused on all aspects of eye movement research across a wide range of disciplines. The goal of ETRA is to bring together computer scientists, engineers and behavioral scientists in support of a common vision of enhancing eye tracking research and applications.


Advances in Eye-Tracking Technology
Eye-tracking systems, software, and algorithms, Eye movement analysis techniques and predictive models

Visual Attention and Eye Movement Control
Studies of eye movement guidance during natural stimuli and behaviors, driving, web surfing, Usability studies

Eye Tracking Applications
Gaze-contingent displays, Attentive user interfaces, Human computer interfaces, Assistive technologies

Special Theme: Communication by Gaze Interaction
Human computer interaction using eye movements is a rapidly growing research topic that is now coming into fruition due to recent advances making eye tracking less expensive and intrusive. We invite submissions that explore eye movements as a communication modality, especially assistive technologies that benefit people with disabilities.


Two categories of submissions are being sought: Full Papers and Late-Breaking Results.

Full papers must be submitted electronically through the ETRA submission website: <> and conform to the ACM SIGGRAPH proceedings category 2 format. Full papers submission can be a maximum length of eight pages. Full papers submissions should be made in double- blind format, hiding authors names and affiliations and all references to the authors previous work. Accepted papers will be published in the ETRA 2006 proceedings. Authors will present a full talk (20 minutes) at the conference.

Late-Breaking Results must be submitted electronically through the ETRA submission website <> and conform to the ACM SIGGRAPH proceedings category 4 format. Late-Breaking Results submissions will consist of a one-page abstract. Given the time constraints of this format, submissions must be made in camera-ready format including authors names and affiliations. Accepted submissions will be published in the ETRA 2006 proceedings. Authors will present a poster at the conference. The most highly rated submissions will be selected for additional presentation as a short talk (10 minutes) in a Late-Breaking Results session.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the program committee. The most highly ranked full paper and late-breaking results presentations will receive awards of excellence.
