January 29, 2020;

CfP for the Workshop Eye Tracking for Quality of Experience in Multimedia (ET-MM), to be held on June 2, 2020 at the University of Stuttgart. This workshop is supported by the SFB-TRR 161, and part of the ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking Research & Applications (ETRA). 

Deadline March 6, 2020.


Call for Papers

Multimedia applications are commonly targeted at the human sensory system. This fact renders subjectively perceived quality the ultimate performance metric in media applications. For visual media such as images and videos, eye tracking provides unprecedented insight into fundamental stages of visual perception. Moreover, it can be expected that eye trackers soon will become standard components in laptops, tablet computers, and smartphones. This allows to deepen our understanding of how humans perceive multimedia, interact with existing multimedia systems, and also to design novel applications that dynamically adapt according to an observer's gaze. In this workshop, we will explore how eye tracking can help to quantify and analyse visual multimedia aspects such as saliency and perceptual quality. ET-MM focuses more on data-driven algorithms and technology, including gaze based interfaces for control of multimedia applications.


Topics of Interest

We seek contributions on, but not limited to the following topics:

  • Eye tracking for visual quality and aesthetics prediction.
  • Eye tracking for image and video saliency.
  • Multimedia datasets which include eye tracking information.
  • Impact of quality degradations on gaze paths.
  • Eye tracking based perceptual image/video coding.
  • Eye movement in multimedia learning.
  • Gaze based interfaces and application control.
  • Eye tracking to assess reliability in user studies.
  • Multi-user interaction (but not for games)

Important Dates:

  • March 6, 2020  Paper submission deadline.
  • March 19, 2020  Notification of acceptance.
  • April 2, 2020   Camera-ready deadline.

There will be no deadline extensions. Submission time zone is AOE (Anywhere on Earth).
