The Physiological Computing Workshop will be held at CHI2002 on Sunday 21st April 2002
This workshop aims to bring together researchers and practitioners who are interested
in the utility of physiology within the human-machine interface.
The main goals of the workshop are:
- To provide participants with an overview of the state of the art
- To develop an understanding of how the availability of physiological data will affect the future of HCI
- To formulate a set of practical guidelines for the measuring and analysis of physiological data.
In order to achieve these goals, we need to gather researchers with knowledge and experience from a
variety of fields of inquiry and applied use, such as:
- Physiological sensing technologies
- Development support for interactive applications
- Physiology as a usability metric
- Affective computing
- Bio-cybernetic/ biofeedback systems
- Prosthetics/healthcare applications
