Title of the invited talk:
Eye Tracking - From the Past to the Future

The talk starts emphasizing the social importance of human eye gaze followed by an overview of early eye tracking research. It continues with some critical remarks on current eye tracking research done by the HCI community and finally gives an outlook on the future research topics of eye tracking for human computer interaction.

Heiko Drewes studied from 1980 to 1987 mathematics (Vordiplom) and physics (Diplom) at the University of Wrzburg/Germany. After years of traveling and being an artist he had a small software company from 1994 to 2004, programming and selling a terminal emulation. From 2004 to 2010 he did a PhD study at the Ludwig-Maximilian-Universitt in Munich/Germany on the topic 'Eye Gaze Tracking for Human Computer Interaction'. After some private projects in the border area between computer science and art ( he went back to Ludwig-Maximilian-Universitt in 2017 as a researcher continuing his research on eye tracking.
