Dear visionlist members,

The 2019 ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking Research and Applications will offer
a Doctoral Symposium, 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 an extended abstract
(3 pages + 1 additional page for references) 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 an extended abstract (3 pages + 1
additional page for references) 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 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:

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)

   A letter of recommendation from the student’s research advisor. The
   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).

Abstracts and accompanying documents should be submitted via EasyChair to
the Doctoral Symposium track.
