Eye Tracking and gaze-based human-computer interfaces have become a valid modality in desktop settings since remote eye tracking is affordable. However, with the growing interest in wearable devices (e.g., smartphones, smartwatches, and eyewear) and the maturation of AI methods (e.g., machine learning), mobile eye tracking and eye-based interaction is becoming increasingly important. PETMEI 2018 focuses on the pervasive eye tracking paradigm as a trailblazer to take eye tracking into the wild, to realistic and pervasive settings. With respect to the key research challenges, new applications and their implications for pervasive eye tracking in ubiquitous computing, we aim at stimulating and exploring the creativity of these communities. The long-term goal is to create a strong interdisciplinary research community linking these fields together and to establish the workshop as the premier forum for research on pervasive eye tracking.
