[CFP] EyePlay: Applications of Gaze in Games Workshop <at> CHI Play '14

EyePlay: 1st Workshop on the Applications of Gaze in Games
CHI Play 2014
19 October 2014
Radisson Admiral Hotel, Toronto, Canada
eyeplayworkshop <at>

What new challenges does the combination of games and eye-­tracking

As eye-­tracking technology is now an affordable commodity, its appeal as a
sensing technology for games is set to become the driving force for novel
methods of player-­computer interaction and games evaluation. The EyePlay
workshop brings together researchers and industry specialists to develop a
new research agenda for this field.

Topics include, but are not limited to:
 * Eye-­tracking as input for games for PC, consoles and mobiles
(interaction and experiences)
 * Application and evaluation of existing eye-­based interaction techniques
in a games context
 * Multi-­modal/Multi-­sensor input (Gaze + Manual input, physiological
input, GPS, etc.)
 * Eye-­tracking as an evaluation and research tool (e.g., Methods, Case
studies) Gaze in serious games for learning, simulation, and health.

SUI 2014 - Call for Posters

Apologies for cross-posting.

We invite you to participate in the ACM Symposium on Spatial User 
Interaction (SUI) by submitting a poster. Posters are more informal than 
papers, and they describe work in progress, novel ideas, novel systems, 
or late implementation of a SUI application. You can submit both a paper 
and a poster on a topic, and some authors of rejected papers will be 
advised to present their work as posters.

Posters extended abstracts should be submitted as a one page manuscript 
in the ACM SIG Proceedings format. Please submit your extended abstract 
in camera-ready format. Extra materials such as videos may also be 
submitted. These will be taken into account during the review process 
and may be included in the final publication.

Submissions should address one or more of the following topics within 
spatial user interaction. Unlisted but strongly related topics are also 

- Spatial interaction techniques
- Spatial user interface metaphors
- Spatial input devices and technology
- Interaction on spatial, stereoscopic, and 3D displays
- Evaluation methods for spatial user interaction
- Collaborative interaction in 3D space
- Design and user experience (UX) for spatial user interaction
- Applications of human spatial perception to interaction
- Adaptive and perceptual-inspired spatial user interaction
- Applications of spatial UIs, such as games, entertainment, CAD, education
- Gesture-based spatial interaction

CfP: Uses of Computer Literacy: Beyond Programming to Creating Cultural Experiences - HCI2014 Workshop, 9th Sept.

Deadline Extended 5th August 2014

Uses of Computer Literacy: Beyond Programming to Creating Cultural Experiences<>

An HCI2014 workshop http://

Taking inspiration from Richard Hoggart’s "The Uses of Literacy: Aspects of Working Class Life”,
this workshop will investigate the creative tools and processes that enable the creation and control of
personal culture. We intend to build on previous experiences for a day of exploring history, ideas and
artifacts for a continued creative push in HCI.
The Uses of Computer Literacy workshop calls for position papers and artefacts, which stress creative
approaches to the making of technology. We will look for work that explores making for cultural purposes.
Amongst the topics which might be suitable for workshop discussion are:

  *   Interactive tools for creative making
  *   Case studies of creative cultural making
  *   Interaction platforms and frameworks for making
  *   Theories of cultural making and computer literacy
  *   Case studies of interactive and Computational Art

Position papers of 4 pages are requested which cover one of the above (non-exclusive topics) or describe an
interesting artefact.
Submissions will be reviewed by the technical committee and should be submitted to David England d.england <at><mailto:d.england <at>>
Important Dates:

Submissions due 5th July 2014
Notification due 8th August 2014
Workshop 9th September 2014

on-site Indoor Positioning and Navigation Competition

	 on-site Indoor Positioning and Navigation Competition

		     In conjunction with IPIN 2014
			   27-29 October 2014


We are pleased to announce the on-site Indoor Positioning and Navigation
Competition, which is to be held during the IPIN 2014 Conference. The
competition aims at bringing together academic and industrial research
communities to work together on challenging open problems in indoor
localization based on mobile devices and sensors, with the purpose of
evaluating different approaches and envisioning new research

Recent years have witnessed increasing interest in location-based
services and applications. In most cases, however, location information
is limited by the accessibility to Global Navigation Satellite Systems
(GNSS), which is largely unavailable in indoor environments.

The competition will consist of the following two tracks.

Track 1: Smartphone based positioning
Track 2: Foot-mounted Pedestrian Dead Reckoning positioning

For Track 1 "Smartphone based positioning", the competitors can use any
sensor available on the smartphones used.

For Track 2 "Foot-mounted positioning", the candidates can use MEMS
