Eye-tracking conference next month with machinima festival in October

De Montford ramps up games focus

De Montford University Leicester is gearing up for a busy two months of games activity.

Next month on September 3rd and 4th, the college is holding the first conference on how eye-tracking can be used in computer games and online communities, called ‘Gaze-based Creativity, Interacting with Games and Online Communities’.

Manufacturers and developers of eye-tracking products will showcase their work on how the kit can let disabled games play games – while a keynote address from eye-tracking expert Dr Andrew Duchowski will be included in the event.

Meanwhile, plans continue to build for the university’s Machinima Festival in October – and De Montford is inviting games developers and publishers to contribute videos of upcoming games for a showreel at the event.
