** 2nd Call for Papers **

4th Workshop on Affective Brain-Computer Interfaces (aBCI) Workshop at
ACII 2015 (September 21-24), Xi'an, China, September 21, 2015


The goal of the aBCI workshop series is to connect researchers from
the communities of affective computing, social signal processing,
brain-computer interfacing, neuro-ergonomics, and neuroscience around
the federating theme of affective brain computer interfaces (aBCI).

Affective BCI aim at the development of human-computer interfaces able
to react and adapt to users' emotions and related cognitive states as
measured from neurophysiological signals. Besides the general
solicitation of work toward adaptive HCI applications based on aBCI,
this 4th edition of the workshop will focus on two specific aspects of
aBCI. Firstly, we welcome papers on ways to alleviate current aBCI
limitations, through work on the physiological basis of aBCI,
innovative applications resilient to classification error, and methods
to increase the robustness of aBCI. Secondly, we would like to explore
the social aspects and applications of aBCI by welcoming submissions
on topics such as multi-user aBCI and the assessment of social
processes from brain signals.

The workshop topics include, but are not limited to,
* effective emotion elicitation and data collection in social settings;
* identification of robust and specific markers of emotional,
cognitive and social processes;
* methods for the assessment of emotions, cognitive states and social
* methods to measure and process multiple people physiological activity;
* applications of central and peripheral signal processing to social situations;
* innovative concepts for adaptive interfaces and affective BCI;
* demos of affective BCI systems.

Submission Instructions:

* The papers should feature original empirical work, theoretical work,
or a well defendable but arguable position of the authors.
* Papers will be published electronically in the proceedings of ACII
2015 by IEEE Xplore. Papers should be limited to 6 pages+1page
references. The review is double blind - please remove all author
information from the manuscripts.
* Further details about the submission instructions and format can be
found on the website of ACII 2015.

June 5, 2015: Submission of manuscripts
July 3, 2015: Acceptance/Rejection notification
July 24, 2015: Submission of camera-ready papers
September 21, 2015: Date of the Workshop
