The following workshops are hosted here at

CHI 2011 Workshop
Brain and Body Interfaces: Designing for Meaningful Interaction

The brain and body provide a wealth of information about the physiological, cognitive and emotional state of the user. There is an increasing opportunity to use physiological data as a form of input control for computerised systems. As entry level sensors become more cheaper and widespread, physiological interfaces are liable to become more pervasive in our society (e.g., through mobile phones and similar devices). While these signals offer new and exciting mechanisms for the control of interactive systems, the issue of whether these physiological interfaces are appropriate for application and offer the user a meaningful level interaction has been relatively unexplored.

BioS-Play 2010
Workshop on Multiuser and Social Biosignal Adaptive Games and Playful Applications

BioS-Play is a workshop targeted to explore the domain of biosignal adaptive games and playful application in a multiuser or social context. Using biosignal instrumentation is an established process in experimental psychology and medical domains. During recent years there have been many efforts in industry and research to develop applications, games and various kinds of interfaces, which use biosignal analysis in real time. However, most of these applications are single user setups. From findings in our earlier work we have realized that there is great potential in developing biosignal adaptive applications and games for multiuser and social scenarios.

CHI 2002 Workshop
Physiological Computing Workshop

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.
