Call for Participation

Biosensing technologies are increasingly more widely integrated in HCI. Biosignals provide novel opportunities for interaction, offering valuable insights into ordinarily hidden processes inside our bodies, revealing somatic information about our and other’s bodies, emotions, health, and cognitive processes. However, integrating biosignals in HCI presents many challenges regarding transparency, UX, I/O, interpretation of biodata, and broader ethical concerns.

To map out the landscape of existing challenges and future research directions, we invite participants working with biosignals to join a one-day hybrid workshop held at the 2024 ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems following a hybrid format.

We welcome participants from HCI, Psychology, Neuroscience, Data Science, Mixed Reality, and Digital Ethics.

You can access the Workshop proposal here.

We invite submissions of 4-8 pages (minimum 4 pages, excluding references) position papers or case studies, presenting a project, or articulating a challenge related to this call.

Themes

Themes should be focus on :

  1. Physiological Computing applications for UX evaluation
  2. Physiological Signals as input for Adaptive Systems
  3. Replicability and Reproducibility for Physiological Signals in HCI
  4. Users’ Awareness of Physiological Signals for Design and Biofeedback Applications
  5.  Novel Physiological Sensors and Devices
  6. Ethical and Privacy Concerns

Alternatively, authors may submit their previously published papers raising relevant questions. Submissions should be sent to EasyChair , must adhere to accessibility guidelines outlined by ACM, and use a CEUR Workshop Proceedings template.

The organizing committee will select submissions based on the quality and contribution of the work relating to the workshop themes, with a special focus on biosignal integration. At least one author of each accepted submission must attend (in-person or remote) and register for the workshop and the CHI’24 conference.

Important Dates

All deadlines are set to Anywhere on Earth (AoE). In contrast to previous years, the deadline will not be extended at a later point. Please consider all dates and times final. 

Submission Deadline: 29 February 2024 15 February 2024

Notification: 8 March 2024
