Looking for interesting conferences where to submit the next papers I have found an ACM Conference named ETRA. It is not focused on HCI or IR or other topics about which I usually write, but on all the research concerned to the eye tracking technique, applied to any science.
ETRA will be held in March 2012 in Santa Barbara (CA):
The program of the last year conference, that was held in Austin are available at:
Thanks to this last page I have had news of Yvonne Kammerer, a researcher who is working on search. Her publications can be seen at:
