Welcome to the Workshop on Eye Tracking and Visualization!

There is a growing interest in eye tracking as a research method in many communities, including information visualization, scientific visualization, visual analytics, but also in human-computer interaction, applied perception, psychology, cognitive science, security, and mixed reality. Progress in hardware technology and the reduction of costs for eye tracking devices have made this analysis technique accessible to a large population of researchers. Recording the observer's gaze can reveal how dynamic graphical displays are visually accessed and which information are processed in real time. Nonetheless, standardized practices for technical implementations and data interpretation remain unresolved. With this Workshop on Eye Tracking and Visualization (ETVIS), we intend to build a community of eye tracking researchers within the visualization community, covering information visualization, scientific visualization, and visual analytics. We also aim to establish connections to related fields, in particular, in human-computer interaction, cognitive science, and psychology. This will promote a robust exchange of established practices and innovative use scenarios.
After last year's successful workshop co-located with IEEE VIS 2015 in Chicago, Illinois, USA, we decided to have another workshop on this interesting, challenging, and important topic. This year we will again invite you to submit papers with the general topic of combining eye tracking and visualization. This can be visualization or visual analytics techniques for eye tracking data or eye tracking-based user evaluations focusing on visual stimuli. The papers will be reviewed by an international program committee with researchers working in the fields of visualization, eye tracking, human-computer interaction, but also in psychology.

ETVIS 2016 will be co-located with IEEE VIS
in Baltimore, Maryland, USA, 23 - 28 October 2016
