This paper investigates gaze patterns in turn-taking. We focus on the difference in gaze patterns in speaker changes resulting in gaps and overlaps. We also investigate gaze patters around backchannels and around silences not involving speaker changes.

Index Terms: gaze, turn-taking, dialogue, inter-speaker coordination
