Authors are also invited to submit original work in a shorter format (see details of the submission instructions here
). A short paper should provide a focused and concise, yet significant, contribution to the current state of the art while not delving into broad discussion.
All short paper submissions will undergo a double-blind review process assessing the originality and technical quality of the work, as well as the relevance for eye tracking research and applications. Accepted papers will be archived in the conference proceedings and will be available in the ACM Digital Library as "ETRA '21 Short Papers". Details about the presentation format will follow after the acceptance notification.
Short papers will go through a single-phase review process. Full reviews will be provided by three committee members. External reviewers will be invited on a case by case basis if specialized expertise is required. After the review process, based on the review summary provided by the primary committee member, the authors will receive the final acceptance or rejection notification.
Submissions may include supplementary material, such as videos, code, or datasets that will be archived together with the paper in the ACM DL. Authors should keep in mind that the final acceptance to the conference will be based on the quality of the paper and not the supplementary material. Video submissions are not required, but encouraged to help demonstrate interactive systems that are otherwise difficult to showcase using images or text. Videos should use the MP4 format with H.264 codec and file size should not exceed 100 MB. We recommend the standard 1920x1080 resolution (1280x720 as an alternative). Any supplementary material, including the video, have to be anonymized for review.
