CHI’12 SIGEYE

Gaze Interaction in the Post-WIMP World
CHI 2012 Special Interest Group Meeting (SIGEYE)

With continuous progression away from desktop to post-WIMP applications, including multi-touch, gestural, or tangible interaction, there is high potential for eye gaze as a more natural human-computer interface in numerous contexts. Examples include attention-aware adaptations or the combination of gaze and hand gestures for interaction with distant displays.

This Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting at CHI 2012 provides a discussion venue for researchers and practitioners interested in gaze interaction in the post-WIMP era. We wish to draw attention to this emerging field and eventually formulate fundamental research questions. We will discuss the potential of gaze interaction for diverse application areas, interaction tasks, and multimodal user interface combinations. Our aims are to promote this research field, foster a larger research community, and establish the basis for a workshop at CHI 2013.

Join us at CHI 2012

on Thursday, May 10th 2012, 11.30 – 12.50
at the Austin Convention Center, room 11B

to discuss this exciting field of research! For further details about our SIG meeting please read our SIG proposal and have a look at the conference program.
