The goal of this workshop is to bring researchers from academia and industries in the field of computer vision and other closely related fields such as robotics and HCI together to share recent advances and discuss future research directions and opportunities for gaze sensing technologies and its applications to Human Computer Interactions and Human Robot Interactions. Topics of interest include and are not limited to:

  • Model-based gaze estimation
  • Appearance-based gaze estimation
  • Head pose estimation from low-resolution images
  • Visual attention analysis
  • Attentive user interfaces
  • Algorithm and systems that incorporate eye gaze for human computer interactions and human robot interactions

Keynote Speakers

Ian Reid (University of Oxford, UK)
Understanding Interactions and Guiding Visual Surveillance by Tracking Attention
Chen Yu (Indiana University, USA)
