Call for participation

The 2018 ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking Research and Applications will offer
a Doctoral Symposium (June 14), where doctoral students get an opportunity
to meet other students and experienced researchers to get feedback on their
research in a friendly environment. 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. Outstanding abstracts from
students who have not yet been accepted into a doctoral program will also
be considered. Participants will be selected based on a 2-page extended
abstract describing the thesis work and its current status. The abstract
will be included in the conference proceedings and published at ACM.


The objective of the doctoral symposium is to provide feedback on the
student's’ work and facilitate the exchange of ideas between other
researchers and students working on related topics. The main symposium also
offers an excellent opportunity to network with researchers with similar


Participants will be selected based on a 2-page extended abstract
describing the thesis work and its current status. The abstracts will go
through a review process. The goal of the review process is to ensure that
students have a defined topic and are still early enough in their studies
to benefit from the feedback and guidance received during the symposium.
The 2-page abstract should describe:

- Research objectives

- Hypothesis and problem statement

- Approach and method

- Preliminary results

- Plans for future work

The role of eye tracking should be clear from the abstract.

Formatting instructions can be found at: http://www.siggraph.org/

In addition, the submission should include:

- A concise CV (max. 3 pages)

- A brief statement indicating how the student expects to benefit from
involvement in the ETRA Doctoral Symposium (max. 1 page)

letter should indicate how long the student has been enrolled in the
doctoral program and discuss the status of the student’s work. (max. 1 page)
