Peter Kiefer is a Senior Scientist at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, leading the geoGAZElab at the Chair of Geoinformation Engineering. His research is concerned with assisting humans in spatial decision situations by the use of eye tracking. Peter’s research is interdisciplinary, bridging Geographic Information Science, Location-Based Services, Spatial Cognition, Eye Tracking, and Human-Computer Interaction.

Martin Raubal is Professor of Geoinformation Engineering at ETH Zurich. He was previously Associate Professor at the Department of Geography, UCSB. Martin’s research interests lie in the areas of Mobility & Energy, more specifically in LBS, spatial cognitive engineering, mobile eye-tracking, and GIS for renewable energy analysis.

Christoph Hölscher is a psychologist by training and Professor of Cognitive Science at ETH Zürich since 2013. He was previously a principal investigator on projects in the SFB/TR8 Spatial Cognition (Freiburg, Bremen), Europe's largest research center on spatial cognition integrating psychology, cognitive science, computer science, linguistics and GIS. The ETH Cognitive Science group investigates basic and applied questions of complex cognition, i.e. understanding how humans tackle complex tasks in real-world task environments. Such complex tasks range from interaction with computer system to finding one's way around a large building or urban environment.
