The MultiplEYE Workshop

Eye Tracking in Reading

a part of

ACM Symposium on Eye Tracking Research & Applications
(ETRA 2024)

We welcome all interested researchers to submit their recent work to our workshop. The workshop is organized to gather researchers working in a broad area concerning the analysis of the way people move their eyes while reading. The aim of the workshop is to bring together data scientists, psychologists, and linguists and give them an opportunity to exchange their ideas.
One of the purposes of the workshop is to support the dissemination of the MultiplEYE COST Action, which aims to foster an interdisciplinary network of research groups working on collecting eye-tracking data from reading in many languages. The network currently includes more than 200 participants interested in and involved with eye-tracking-while-reading research. However, the workshop is open to all interested researchers.
The workshop aims to summarize the current state of the art in research concerning eye movements in reading and enable prospective researchers to present their new ideas. The scope of the workshop focuses on using eye movement recorded during reading to:

  • Analysis of cognitive processes in reading
  • Recognizing the mental state of the reader
  • Evaluating comprehension of the read text
  • Diagnosing reading disorders and difficulties
  • Finding differences among texts in different languages
  • Cross-linguistic comparison of eye movement patterns in reading
  • Modelling eye movements in reading
  • Finding patterns typical for specific texts
  • Finding patterns typical for specific readers (education, language, age, gender, background, and more)
  • Finding differences among texts of different genres or difficulty levels
  • Leveraging eye-tracking-while-reading data for enhancing computational language models (e.g., gaze-augmented language modeling for NLP tasks)
  • Leveraging eye-tracking-while-reading data to cognitively interpret or evaluate computational language models

Additionally, we welcome papers proposing new applications, new ways of data recording and processing, new stimuli and methodologies. We will also accept position papers, which present new and original ideas that, for now, lack rigorous experimental support, providing that the presented idea is sound, interesting, and worth discussion.

The accepted workshop papers will be published as ACM ETRA Proceedings. The submissions should be between 4 and 8 pages in the single-column ACM Article template.
All submissions will go through a single-phase review cycle with at least two reviewers. The Program Committee consists of experts in the fields of eye tracking, psychology, and linguistics.
