[visionlist] COGAIN 2017 – extended submission deadline April 29th

     *** Apologies for multiple copies, please redistribute ***Dear Colleagues, Since our last reminder just before the Eastern holiday weekend we have received requests from researchers to extend the submission deadline for the COGAIN Symposium. As a result we have decided to grant an extra week so that the new deadline is April 29th, and the acceptance notice will be sent by May 15th. Also, more information about the COGAIN 2017 program has been posted at http://ift.tt/2nIhXDm. That includes information about the pre-conference workshop on gaze interaction by Carlos Morimoto, the keynote lecture by Hans Gellersen, and the COGAIN Association meeting. We look forward to meet you in Wuppertal, Andreas and Carlos General co-chairs           ***     THE 2017 COGAIN SYMPOSIUM      ***              Website: http://ift.tt/2odgr11  : Wuppertal, Germany              When   : August 19th and 21st              Submission deadline: April 29th, 2017              Notification due   : May   15th, 2017              Final version due  : May   20th, 2017CALL FOR PAPERS  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 –  http://ift.tt/2lZnZPu).   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,  etc.   We invite authors to submit a two-page extended abstract (plus one  page with references only) according to the information for authors  (http://ift.tt/2nIxOSJ). 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 estimationSPECIAL THEME: GAZE INTERACTION IN AUGMENTED AND VIRTUAL REALITY  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. ORGANIZATION  General co-chairs     – Andreas Bulling     [Max Planck Institute, Germany]     – Carlos H. Morimoto  [University of São Paulo, Brazil]  Program co-chairs     – John Paulin Hansen  [Technical University of Denmark]     – Roman Bednarik      [University of Eastern Finland]==============================================================Please visit http://ift.tt/2pMRB5i more information==============================================================
