With eye tracking becoming pervasive, researchers face fundamental new challenges regarding privacy and ethics. However, these critical topics have only received little attention in the eye tracking community so far. An active discussion about ethical and social implications as well as issues of data privacy is important for the further development of pervasive eye tracking technology and its acceptance in society.
With a highly successful first event (more than 40 participants) held in conjunction with ETRA 2021, this workshop has established itself as the premier forum for these discussions. Building on the outcomes from last year, we now aim to actively engage researchers and practitioners and help them to start implementing privacy-aware pervasive eye tracking systems.
This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners from
- eye tracking,
- (usable) privacy,
- human-computer interaction,
- and other eye tracking-related research fields,
- and industry.
... to discuss a range of topics including, but not limited to
- Studies on privacy-sensitive information that can be extracted from the eyes
- Empirical analyses of privacy risks for eye tracking users and bystanders
- Analyses of privacy risks from eyes in combination with other modalities and/or body-worn sensors
- Computational methods for privacy-preserving gaze data analysis
- Hardware solutions for privacy-aware and ethical eye tracking
- Ethical considerations on the usage of gaze data for research, in medical devices, in commercial products etc.
- User studies on the awareness of privacy and ethical issues arising from the usage of pervasive eye tracking

Rebekah Overdorf - University of
Rebekah Overdorf is an assistant professor at the University of Lausanne in the School of Law, Criminal Justice and Public Admin- istration working in security, privacy, and digital forensics, more specifically: anonymity networks (traffic analysis vulnerabilities of Tor hidden services), stylometry (authorship attribution based on writing style), cybercriminal networks, and social media based attacks with particular expertise and interest in using data science and machine learning methods to study security.
Michael Raschke - Blickshift GmbH, Germany
Michael Raschke is Co-Founder and managing director of Blickshift GmbH and an expert for a visualization-based eye movement analysis. Since 2009 he has been working on new methods and techniques for the analysis of perceptual and cognitive processes at the Institute for Visualization and Interactive Systems at the University of Stuttgart. In 2016 he founded Blickshift GmbH together with two of his former colleagues from the institute to transfer research results in eye tracking analysis into commercial products.
Andreas Bulling - University of Stuttgart, Germany
Andreas Bulling is Full Professor of Human-Computer Interaction and Cognitive Systems at the University of Stuttgart. His research interests are in novel computational methods and systems to sense, model, and analyze everyday non-verbal human behavior, specifically gaze. He was one of the organisers and panelist of the privacy in eye tracking panel at ACM ETRA 2019. He received his PhD in Information Technology and Electrical Engineering from ETH Zurich and his MSc in Computer Science from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology.
