ET4S 2020 Eye Tracking for Spatial Research 2020 – First Call for Papers

*First Call for Papers**
**ET4S 2020 – Eye Tracking for Spatial Research 2020*

co-located event at ETRA 2020

June 02-05, 2020, in Stuttgart, Germany

Eye tracking has become a popular method for investigating research
questions related to geographic space and spatial data. This includes
studies on how people interact with geographic information systems,
studies on how space is perceived in decision situations, and using gaze
as an input modality for spatial human-computer interaction. As an event
co-located with ETRA 2020, Eye Tracking for Spatial Research (ET4S) aims
to bring together researchers from different fields who have a common
interest in using eye tracking for research questions related to
visuospatial information processing and spatial decision-making.

After four successful ET4S events in 2013, 2014, 2018, and 2019, the 5th
edition of ET4S will be organized as a co-located event at ETRA 2020
(, the ACM Symposium on Eye
Tracking Research & Applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Gaze-based Interaction with Maps and Other Spatial Visualizations
* Evaluation of Cartographic and Other Spatial Visualizations with Eye
* Gaze-aware Mobile Assistance and Location-based Services
* Navigation Studies, Wayfinding, and Eye Tracking
* Eye Tracking in Traffic Research (e.g., Car Navigation, Public
Transport, Aviation)
* Visual Perception and Exploration of (Indoor and Outdoor) Space
* Landscape Perception
* Visuospatial Cognition Research
* Gaze During Spatial and Spatio-temporal Decision Making
* Spatio-temporal Analysis and Visualization of Eye Tracking Data
* Individual and Group Differences in Visuospatial Information Processing
* Eye Tracking in XR (VR/MR/AR) for Spatial Research
* Eye Tracking in 3D Space
* Multi-user Eye Tracking for Collaborative Spatial Decision Making

*Submission Guidelines *
We call for regular and work-in-progress papers. Your submissions should
be prepared following the sigconf instructions. To prepare the content
of the PDF file, SIGGRAPH encourages authors to use the following
templates for LaTeX and Word, respectively: At least one
author of each accepted ET4S paper must register for the ETRA conference.

/*Regular papers*/ should present original and novel work demonstrating
advances in methodological, theoretical, experimental or practical
aspects of ET4S topics on up to 6 pages (+2 pages maximum for references
only). Regular papers are expected to present fully analyzed data or
accomplished work. All accepted regular papers are presented orally at
the ET4S event.

/*Work-in-progress papers*/ are suitable for work on ET4S-related topics
in a stage beyond planning-only, but where feedback and discussion at
the ET4S event can make a contribution (e.g., a pilot study for a
planned study has been performed, or a conducted but not fully analyzed
study). Work-in-progress papers can be up to 4 pages long (+2 pages
maximum for references only). Work-in-progress papers will be presented
at the ET4S event either with a short oral presentation or as a poster.

All papers should be submitted through Precision Conference (PCS, and are
subject to a single review round. In PCS, please make sure you choose
the track “ETRA 2020 Eye Tracking for Spatial Research (ET4S)“.
