The COGAIN Workshop on Gaze Interaction will be offered as part of the ECEM 2017 Pre-Conference Workshops. For the workshop to take place, at least 15 participants need to register (60 maximum). Registration fee is 70€. Enrollment will start with the conference registration on May 15th.
Gaze-based interfaces have been around for decades. Though very succesful in helping people with disabilities, the use of eye movements in general purpose computer applications is still very challenging. From Jacob's seminal "What you look at is what you get" work, gaze-based interfaces have come a long way, along with eye tracking technology. Today, light weight wearable eye trackers might finally enable everyday gaze interaction applications. This course will give you insight into the major gaze interaction paradigms and some practical experience in designing novel gaze-based interfaces.
Beginners and intermediate eye-tracking researchers interested in designing gaze interaction systems.
Carlos Morimoto is the leading research of the Laboratory of Technologies for Interaction at the University of São Paulo, Brazil. His main areas of research are Human-Computer Interaction and Computer Vision. He has participated in the development of several eye trackers, such as the IBM BlueEyes, and he has also contributed in the design of different gaze interaction methods, such as MAGIC Pointing, Context Switching, Eye Swipe, and AugKey.
