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.
