*CogSci-Workshop "When eye see you - Gaze and joint attention in human 

**Call for Abstracts*

Gaze behavior provides fundamental mechanisms for sharing mental states 
such as goals and desires and helps to ground communicative content. 
Responding to or leading someone's gaze to a location or an object of 
interest thus may result in a situation of joint attention -- a 
referential triad between two individuals and an entity in the 
environment. Since people often look at what they attend to and where 
they intend to act, joint attention is considered fundamental to an 
understanding of other minds and the interaction with them.
This workshop aims to explore how traditionally separate research areas 
such as social cognition/neuroscience, psycholinguistics, human-computer 
interaction and developmental psychology contribute to an understanding 
of the general phenomenon of gaze-following and joint attention from 
different perspectives -- and how these fields can benefit and learn 
from each other, e.g. by comparing different approaches and methodologies. *

We explicitly encourage submissions from all related fields, i.e., 
psychology, (social) neuroscience, linguistics, and human-computer 
interaction. Abstracts should present theoretical, experimental, and/or 
computational research on any aspect of human interaction involving 
mutual and/or object-oriented gaze. Together with our keynote lectures 
given by Andrew Bayliss, Susan Brennan, Peter Mundy, and Elizabeth 
Redcay, accepted abstracts will form a program of oral (and possibly 
poster) presentations throughout the workshop day. Due to the limited 
number of available time slots, only a small number of submissions 
(roughly 6) will be selected for oral presentation.

Submissions should not exceed one page, including figures and 
references. The main text should be limited to 350 words. Please send 
only PDFs by email to: whenICU.submissions AT gmail.com
