Brain Body and Bytes: Psychophysiological User Interaction

Workshop at CHI2010
April 11, 2010
Atlanta, Georgia, USA

The human brain and body are prolific signal generators. Recent
technologies and computing techniques allow us to measure, process
and interpret these signals. We can now infer such things as
cognitive and emotional states, to create adaptive systems and gain
an understanding of user experience. In this workshop, we aim to
bring together researchers from fields such as HCI, interaction
design, cognitive science, psychology, psychophysiology, game
research, neural or bio-engineering, and BCI.

The workshop will feature small group brainstorming sessions.
Participants will discuss situations that arise when researchers
attempt to understand requirements for sensors and devices that
measure psychophysiological signals; brainstorm how the data may be
processed; but perhaps most importantly evaluate the scenarios and
applications that the technologies enable.


To participate, please submit position papers (3-4 pages in extended
abstract format) to agirou01 at by 6 Jan, 2010 with
"CHI2010 Workshop" in the subject. Papers may describe ongoing
work, recent results, or opinions and approaches related to the
workshop topic. Papers should include a short biography of the
author(s) wishing to attend the workshop (100-150 words).

Papers will be peer-reviewed and the organizing committee will select
15-20 participants according to relevance, quality of reported
results, diversity of research area and experience, and likelihood
that they will stimulate and contribute to the discussion. If
accepted, at least one author must register for the workshop and for
one or more days of the conference.

Important dates

Paper submission: January 6, 2010
