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.
