Project News and Recent Work



June 29, 2014
Major web-page revisions and reorganization, hopefully making it easier to discover and understand our project. Future updates will likely include code and data repositories, for easy access to our open-source software and the imagery we've captured.

Research papers led by Tommy P. Keane have been recently published. A paper accepted by abstract to the IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging 2014 conference's meeting on Human Vision and Electronic Imaging, and an 8-page paper for selected through 2 rounds of double-blind peer-review for the 2014 Symposium on Eye-Tracking Research and Applications (ETRA). The Processing Steps page has been updated with open-source free-to-use software from the ETRA 2014 publication on Classical Recurrence Analysis methods. This website is still under construction, and so we thank you for your patience, and please feel free to contact us for any information or comments.

The publications page is being updated. Research papers led by Tommy P. Keane have been accepted to the IEEE WNYIPW 2013 and the IS&T/SPIE Electronic Imaging 2014 conference's meeting on Human Vision and Electronic Imaging. Also, a submission is under review with the 2014 Symposium on Eye-Tracking Research and Applications (ETRA), and notification on those reviews will be returned by Friday November 8th. Details and links to conference pages are being organized and uploaded now. Thank you for your patience!

A 4-page conference proceedings on eye-movement event detection using recurrence analysis methods has been accepted to the 2013 IEEE Western New York Image Processing Workshop (WNYIPW). Tommy P. Keane has authored the paper and will give an oral presentation during the conference (Friday, November 22, 2013). As part of this paper the Processing Steps page has been updated with a general description of the methodology, some diagrams, and an open-source (free) implementation in python. We are currently establishing a licensing plan, but we are dedicated to providing open-source software tools which will be maintained and update. Thank you!
