In this paper we present the INEX 2010 Interactive Track experiments that have been performed with eye-tracking in addition to the other collected data (system logs and questionnaires). We present our tool AOILog for recording Areas of Interest (AOI) data for dynamic user interfaces. Finally, we show how these eye-tracking and AOI data could be used for further analysis of the user interaction with the search system.
