2nd International Workshop on Bio-inspired Human-Machine Interfaces
and Healthcare Applications - B-Interface 2011
28-29 January, 2011 - Rome, Italy
in conjunction with the BIOSTEC 2011


Regular Paper Submission: October 18, 2010 (extended)
Authors Notification: November 02, 2010
Final Paper Submission and Registration: November 19, 2010

The convergence of physiological sensors, signal processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, cognitive neuroscience, neurophysiology and biomedical engineering produces exciting new ideas for solving a variety of complex problems in human-machine interface and healthcare applications. During the last decades, growing interest has been aroused in exploiting electrical nature of the human nervous system for neural human-machine interfacing, using EEG, ECG, EMG, EOG, GSR, etc. In addition to the autonomic nervous signals, researchers employ extrinsic physiological channels including speech, facial expression, and gesture to approach affective human-machine interfaces. Some of these modalities can be successfully combined for human-like decision-making. A fascinating fact is that such physiological measurements can also offer great potential for daily healthcare monitoring. Moreover, recently the medical mainstream recognizes the health/healing power of various environmental elements including social activity, diet and nutrition, joy and stress, family, and lifestyle. All of these aspects extend the scope of applying physiological signals to multi-disciplinary research fields. The aim of this workshop is to assemble researchers from diverse backgrounds together to discuss their ideas and solutions and to build a new vision. The topics that will be covered include (but not limited to):

Bio-inspired Human-Machine Interfaces
› Biosignal acquisition techniques
› Biosignal-based interfacing models
› Biosensor data fusion and localization
› Biosignal analysis and classification techniques
› Speech recognition
› Facial expression recognition
› Sensor networks for intelligent interface
› Emotion and mood recognition
› Motion/gesture detection
› Brain-computer interface
› Neural human-machine interfaces
› Affective human-machine interfaces
› Neural rehabilitation methods
› Virtual methods for rehabilitation
› Neuroprosthetic applications
› Electric and magnetic neural stimulation
› Multimodal approaches for improved decision making

Healthcare Applications
› Healthcare monitoring systems
› Physiological models for interpreting biomedical sensor data
› Activity recognition and fall detection
› Wearable and implantable sensor integration
› Sensor networks for home healthcare
› Data fusion in daily healthcare environments
› Physical exercise (e.g. sports) monitoring and management
› Decision support algorithms for biosignal analysis
› Health interfaces, information visualization and feedback
› Entertainment, educational and motivational aids
› Ambient health and wellness measurement
› Applications for diabetes mellitus (special issue)

We would like to encourage the submission of proposals for demonstrations related to any area of the topics above. The Demo Session will take place in parallel with the poster sessions at the BIOSTEC 2011 conference. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of their innovation, scientific contribution, relevance, and technical merit. Proposals should be one page in length at maximum, including:
› Demo title
› Full name of authors and their organization
› Address, phone number and email address of contact person
› A short description of demo, including related publications
and submitted via email to the workshop chair.

Deadline for demo submission: November 18, 2010
Notification of acceptance: November 23, 2010
