Francesco Chiossi is a PhD researcher in the Media Informatics Group at LMU Munich. With a background in cognitive neuroscience, he focuses on implicit measures of human behavior, such as EDA and EEG, as an implicit input to design physiologically-adaptive Mixed Reality systems.

Ekaterina Stepanova is a Ph.D. Candidate at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University with a background in cognitive science, developmental psychology, and virtual reality. Her research employs somaesthetics and embodied cognition to design mediated experiences with bioresponsive and immersive technologies.

Benjamin Tag is a Lecturer in the Embodied Visualisation Group at Monash. He is researching ways to quantify and understand human emotions and cognition by combining methods from cognitive psychology and ubiquitous computing. He is interested in deploying commodity devices (e.g., smartphones) in everyday settings to enable comprehensive long-term mental state assessments.

Monica Perusquía-Hernández is an assistant professor at the Nara Institute of Science and Technology (NAIST), Japan, working in affective computing, signal processing, and interoceptive awareness enhancement in cyber-physical systems. Her work relies on Computer Vision, EMG, EEG, ECG, and EDA for congruence estimation between facial expressions and emotions.

Alexandra Kitson is a postdoctoral fellow in the Tangible Embodied Child Computer Interaction Lab at Simon Fraser University, whose research is focused on designing, developing, and evaluating interactive systems such as wearables and virtual reality to support both personal and social transformation and emotional well-being.

Arindam Dey is a computer scientist on a mission to make Metaverse better for users in various ways. Currently, he is a Research Scientist at Meta, focusing on health and safety in the metaverse. He is also an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, Australia, primarily focusing on Mixed Reality and Empathic Computing.

Sven Mayer is an assistant professor at LMU Munich. His research sits at the intersection between HCI and Artificial Intelligence, where he focuses on the next generation of computing systems. He uses artificial intelligence to design, build, and evaluate future human-centered interfaces.

Abdallah El Ali is an HCI research scientist at Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam within the Distributed & Interactive Systems group. He leads the research area on Affective Interactive Systems, combining advances in HCI, eXtended Reality, and Artificial Intelligence to measure, infer, and augment human cognitive, affective, and social interactions.
