 Physiological Computing

The increasing availability of commercial physiological sensing technology provides researchers with an opportunity to explore detectable human physiology as a means of advanced human-machine integration. Not only can physiological sensing technologies provide existing interactive applications with a new, intimately personal data source but they also afford interesting new types of interaction, such as direct brain-computer communication.

Yet to be explored are the implications of having one's own physiological responses to environment manifest.

This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners who are interested in the utility of physiology within the human-machine interface. The main goal of the workshop is to develop an understanding of how the availability of physiological information is going to affect the future of human-machine interaction.

TOPICS OF INTEREST INCLUDE (but are not limited to):

  • Physiological sensing technologies
  • Development support for physiologically-enabled interactive applications
  • Affective computing
  • Physiological usability metrics
  • Bio-cybernetic/ biofeedback systems


We encourage submissions from researchers and practitioners in academia, industry, government, and consulting. Students, researchers and practitioners are invited to submit an extended abstract (about 2000 words) describing original work or a position paper (about one page). Participants will be selected based on their submissions; a selection of extended abstracts will be presented at the workshop. The workshop organisers will be actively seeking to secure journal publication of extended versions of the best submissions. Suitable submissions could otherwise form the basis of a book on this interesting topic. Please send submissions to:
