Gaze based interaction is commonly considered within a single user scenario. Many techniques emerged to combine people's eye movements together with other input modalities to interact with each other or computing systems, such as interactive surfaces. In this seminar the focus is on the development of applications providing multi user gaze based interaction input. Teams of two persons will design and implement an interactive application. The software to use the eye trackers will be provided. Students are free to develop their own ideas, which will be only restricted to different categories provided by us. To get feedback project ideas and related work have to be presented to the group. Attendance during all meetings is mandatory.
