In the field of data visualization eye tracking experiments are increasingly used to examine and compare different visualization techniques in regard to their usability and task appropriateness. In eye tracking user studies the gaze data of participants is recorded and evaluated subsequently. Apart from conducting the user study itself, the analysis of the collected eye tracking data is a time-intensive process.

The aim of this work is to develop a concept to assist a user with the analysis of eye tracking user studies by using workflow technology. To do so the steps of an eye tracking analysis should be mapped to workflow activities. First, an existing framework for the analysis of eye tracking user studies is examined in terms of its functionality and interface. Afterwards, it is shown how the framework has to be extended or adapted, in order to integrate it into a BPEL-workflow by using web service technology. The concept is presented in form of a prototypically implemented web service and demonstrated in two exemplary scenarios.
