   The Symposium on Communication by Gaze Interaction is being organized
   by the COGAIN Association (http://cogain.org) and will take place at
   the Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Germany, on August 21st, 2017, as
   part of the 19th European Conference on Eye Movements (ECEM 2017 -

   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 presents research that
   advances the state-of-the-art in these areas, leading to new
   capabilities in gaze interaction, gaze enhanced applications, gaze
   contingent devices, gaze tracking systems, eye movement data analysis,

   We invite authors to submit a two-page extended abstract (plus one
   page with references only) according to the information for authors
   (http://cogain2017.cogain.org/?authors). Topics of interest include
   all aspects of gaze interaction and communication by gaze including,
   but not limited to 

       * Eye-controlled assistive technology
       * Gaze interfaces for wearable computing
       * Gaze-contingent devices
       * Gaze-aware applications
       * Gaze-enhanced games
       * Gaze interaction with mobile devices
       * Gaze interaction paradigms
       * Usability and UX evaluation of gaze-based interfaces
       * User context estimation from eye movements
       * Eye data quality and gaze estimation metrics
       * Eye movement data analysis
       * Eye movement classification algorithms
       * 3D gaze estimation


   Eye Tracking technology is continuously evolving. In the past five
   years we have seen huge developments in wearable eye trackers, making
   them more comfortable, reliable, and easier to use. In parallel, AR
   and VR systems have also reached the consumer market. Combined, these
   two technologies create new possibilities for everyday gaze
   interaction applications.  

   We invite submissions that explore new gaze interaction strategies and
   gaze-aware applications that enhance current means of using AR and VR
   computing platforms, such as in attentive interfaces, gaming,
   augmented perception, and smart environment control.
