CogSci-Workshop "When eye see you - Gaze and joint attention in
human interaction"

Call for Abstracts

Gaze behavior provides fundamental mechanisms for sharing mental
states such as goals and desires and helps to ground
communicative content. Responding to or leading someone's gaze to
a location or an object of interest thus may result in a
situation of joint attention - a referential triad between two
individuals and an entity in the environment. Since people often
look at what they attend to and where they intend to act, joint
attention is considered fundamental to an understanding of other
minds and the interaction with them. This workshop aims to
explore how traditionally separate research areas such as social
cognition/neuroscience, psycholinguistics, human-computer
interaction and developmental psychology contribute to an
understanding of the general phenomenon of gaze-following and
joint attention from different perspectives -- and how these
fields can benefit and learn from each other, e.g. by comparing
different approaches and methodologies.

More on this workshop can be found at:


We explicitly encourage submissions from all related fields,
i.e., psychology, (social) neuroscience, linguistics, and
human-computer interaction. Abstracts should present theoretical,
experimental, and/or computational research on any aspect of
human interaction involving mutual and/or object-oriented gaze.
Together with our keynote lectures given by Andrew Bayliss, Susan
Brennan, Peter Mundy, and Elizabeth Redcay, accepted abstracts
will form a program of oral (and possibly poster) presentations
throughout the workshop day. Due to the limited number of
available time slots, only a small number of submissions (roughly
6) will be selected for oral presentation.

Submissions should not exceed one page, including figures and
references. The main text should be limited to 350 words. Please
send only PDFs by email to: whenICU.submissions AT gmail.com
