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:
