Brain Body and Bytes: Psychophysiological User Interaction

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

** Paper submission: January 6, 2010 **

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


To participate, please submit position papers (3-4 pages in extended
abstract format) to agirou01 at cs.tufts.edu 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.
