Welcome to the CHI 2010 Workshop on Brain, Body and Bytes: Psychophysiological User Interaction.

The workshop will take place on April 11 at CHI 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. More details about the time and place will follow.

This website provides information for participants as well as an archive of position papers, presentation slides, and other information about the workshop. If you're interested in the workshop but cannot participate, follow us on Twitter or Facebook.

Next Steps

The workshop organizers and participants have decided to continue this great community through a Google group called Brain Body Interface. Please join us to learn more and to participate!


The human brain and body are prolific signal generators. Recent technologies and computing techniques allow us to measure, process and interpret these signals. We can now infer such things as cognitive and emotional states, to create adaptive systems and gain an understanding of user experience. In this workshop, we aim to bring together researchers from fields such as HCI, interaction design, cognitive science, psychology, psychophysiology, game research, neural or bio-engineering, and BCI.

The workshop will feature small group brainstorming sessions. Participants will discuss situations that arise when researchers attempt to understand requirements for sensors and devices that measure psychophysiological signals; brainstorm how the data may be processed; but perhaps most importantly evaluate the scenarios and applications that the technologies enable.

For more details, see our Workshop Abstract.
