3rd International Workshop on Eye-Movements in Programming

News vom 01.10.2015

The third international workshop on Eye Movements in Programming will focus on advancing the methodological, theoretical and applied aspects of eye-movements in programming. Previously we focused on understanding expert (2013) and novice (2014) source code reading behaviors, and we launched the first distributed data collection in this discipline. By analyzing the pre-shared datasets and discussion of bottom-up data-to-models approaches, the workshop produced new methods, tools and understanding of source code reading gaze patterns.

The third edition aims at investigating the opposite direction. We invite contributions departing from theoretical perspectives and grounds to present new hypotheses about gaze behaviour in comprehension, debugging, and other tasks of programming.
