The conference will take place at Blekinge Institute of Technology on the 26-27th of May 2011. The special theme of the conference is "Novel Gaze-Controlled Applications" and we hope to bring together a diverse group of people interested in this topic. The use of eye tracking has recently opened up many new exciting combinations. Not only does it make it possible to find out what and where people are attending to in stimuli and interfaces, it can also be connected to additional instrumentation or apparatus for example biometric or auditive information. In combination with eye tracking or gaze steering we can orchestrate our whole body in novel interaction with screen and different devices. Topics for contributions include but are not limited to the following areas:

  • Interaction methods available when using gaze interaction
  • Challenges associated with interaction methods and possible solutions for these
  • Technical challenges when using eye tracking for interaction
  • Where are the limitations, what implications does these limitations put on the interaction and what can be done to compensate for these limitations
  • Integration of eye tracking with other modalities (galvanic skin response (GSR), audio, haptics, electroencephalography (EEG), graphics, pulse, brain-computer interface (BCI))

The application domains can be games, serious games, simulation training, robotics, health, accessibility, wellbeing and fitness, social interaction, team building…

Please join us in Karlskrona to interact with academic and industry researchers from Sweden and abroad, share new results, and discuss emerging directions for the field.

See important dates for deadlines.


Please see the list below for the important dates:

  • NEWS: Deadline Extension - 16th of April (23:59GMT) - Submissions after this time will not be considered for review.
  • Acceptance Notification - 25th of April
  • Camera-ready Copy Due - 2nd of May (or as soon as possible to make sure your submission is ready for publishing in the ACM DL)
  • Conference - 26-27th of May
NEWS: If your paper is accepted a copyright form will need to be filled in and approved before the 28th of April at the latest (four weeks before the conference start). Due to a tight schedule of preparing the papers for the digital library it is important that this is done as soon as you obtain the acceptance notification. More details on this will follow.


Submissions relating to all aspects of eye tracking are invited. We invite short (up to 4 pages) and long (maximum 8 pages) papers in the categories of applications and research. High quality submissions describing work-in-progress will also be considered. Papers must be written and presented in English. The main contribution of the paper should not previously have appeared in, or be submitted to, any other conference or journal. If accepted, you will be expected to deliver an oral presentation at the conference. All accepted papers will appear in the digital conference proceedings and there will be a prize for the best paper. Authors of some rejected papers with high potential will be invited to present their work as a poster. The papers from the conference will appear in the International Conference Proceedings Series in the ACM Digital Library.

  • Anonymize your submission by replacing the author name(s) with "Submitted for blind review."
  • Do not list institutions or email addresses.
  • Please send us your submissions in .pdf format by email to:
  • The subject of the email should be "NGCA 2011". In the body of your email please include the title of the paper, the list of authors and their affiliations.
  • In order to prepare your papers in a suitable format you must use the ACM Word or LaTeX style templates to prepare your articles which can be found here.
  • It is important that you apply the ACM Computing Classification categories and terms found here.
  • The paper should have the copyright statement and bibliographic strip on the bottom of the first page left column.
  • The PDF must have Type 1 fonts (scalable), not Type 3 (bit-mapped). All fonts must be embedded within the PDF file. In order to help you through this process please see this documentation on how to embed your fonts. Please download the ACM Digital Library optimal distiller settings file, ACM.joboptions.

Please contact us early on if you have any problems formatting your paper according to the guidelines to ensure it can be included in the digital library.
