NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Void where prohibited. Subject to full Official Rules [Gaze Prediction<https://research.fb.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Final_Rules_Gaze_Prediction.pdf>, Sparse Temporal Semantic Segmentation<https://research.fb.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Final_Sparse_Semantic_Segmentation.pdf>]

It is our pleasure to announce that Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) in collaboration with our academic partners from team-GAZE will organize a joint full-day workshop at ECCV 2020 in Glasgow, UK. Specifically, this event is a combination of the OpenEDS workshop<https://research.fb.com/programs/the-2019-openeds-workshop-eye-tracking-for-vr-and-ar/> (organized by FRL at ICCV 2019) and the Gaze Estimation and Prediction workshop<https://gazeworkshop.github.io/> (organized by team-GAZE at ICCV 2019).

Track-2 of this workshop will host two challenges that are structured around 2D eye-image datasets that we have collected using a prototype VR head mounted device. More information about these challenges is available at:https://research.fb.com/programs/openeds-2020-challenge/<http://research.fb.com/programs/openeds-2020-challenge/>
Call for Papers
In addition to soliciting participation in workshop challenge, the workshop is also soliciting papers covering a list of topics that are of particular interest to the organizing committee.

  *   Proposal of novel eye detection, gaze estimation pipelines using deep neural networks that incorporate one or all of the following:
     *   Geometric/anatomical constraints into the network in a differentiable manner.
     *   Demonstration of robustness to conditions where current methods fail (illumination, appearance, low-resolution etc.).
     *   Robust estimation from different data modalities such as RGB, depth, and near IR.
     *   Use of additional cues, such as task context, temporal data, eye movement classification.
  *   Designing new, accurate metrics to account for rapid eye movements in the real world.
  *   Semi-/un-/self-supervised learning, meta-learning, domain adaptation, attention mechanisms and other related machine learning methods for gaze estimation.
  *   Methods for temporal gaze estimation and prediction including Bayesian methods.
  *   Unsupervised semantic segmentation of eye regions.
  *   Active learning frameworks for semantic segmentation of eye images.
  *   Generative models for eye image synthesis and gaze estimation.
  *   Transfer learning for eye tracking from simulation data to real data.
  *   Domain transfer applications for eye tracking.
The tentative schedule for paper submissions is as follows:

  *   Workshop paper submission due: 5th of June
  *   Paper review due: 29th of June
  *   Decision notification: 3rd of July (same as the main ECCV conference)
  *   Camera-ready submission: 17th of July (same as the main ECCV conference)
