3rd Workshop on Affective Brain-Computer Interfaces (aBCI) Workshop at
ACII 2013 (September 2-5), Geneva, Switzerland, September 2, 2013


During the last decade, brain computer interface (BCI) research has
developed into a major research field establishing methodological
frameworks, guidelines and a core community of established researchers.
Besides proving valuable as a communication channel that bypasses impeded
muscular pathways, the novel technology also spurred the investigation of
applications for able-bodied users, foremost in the fields of
entertainment, health and lifestyle.

Affective BCI systems allowing users to control computer games, support
relaxation training, or trigger your alarm clock during a shallow sleep
stage have been proposed, implemented, and sold. Moreover, the affordable
hardware and software tools also encouraged artists to play with the idea
of a direct access to people’s most private information: their affective
and cognitive states. From these explorations followed a number of
interesting installations, suggesting novel ways of human-computer as well
as human-human interaction: neurotechnology-based systems that encourage
affective self-reflection, the synchronization and empathizing between or
the competition of different minds, and the collaborative creation and
manipulation of digital multimodal content.

The third workshop on affective brain-computer interfaces will explore the
advantages and limitations of using neuro-physiological signals as a
modality for the automatic recognition of affective and cognitive states,
and the possibilities of using this information about the user state in
applications for domains like health, arts, and entertainment. The goal is
to bring researchers, artists, and practitioners together to present
state-of-the-art progress and their visions, and thus to spur the
development of guidelines and frameworks for affective BCI.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• emotion elicitation and data collection for affective BCI
• detection of affect and mental state via BCI and other modalities
• innovative concepts for adaptive interfaces and affective BCI
• demos of aBCI systems and artworks
