PSYCHOBIT 2020 : Second Symposium on Psychology-Based Technologies
Call For Papers
Second Symposium on Psychology-Based Technologies is organized jointly by Natural and Artificial Cognition Lab (NAC) of University of Naples Federico II and Antrhopos|Techné.
TOPIC AND SCOPE
In a digital era, the technology impacts, influences, assists and improve our life at different levels. The fields of psychology are increasingly facing the main issues concerned with evolving of technology at the service of human life. Specifically, psychological research has proposed a broad spectrum of different methodologies aimed at improving the general living conditions of people in various socio-economical contexts, i.e. work, family, school, interpersonal relations, health. This grounded set of scientific knowledge, professional practice and methodologies of intervention can be purposefully applied to the design and development of technologies that support the human psychological needs and compatible with everyone’s characteristics.
In continuity with the First Symposium organized last year, PsychoBit2020 aims at presenting psychological theories and models that revolve around the improvement of the psychological and relational life of every individual. Specifically, the symposium focuses on technological solutions, mainly employing IT, software and hardware solutions to meet psychological needs.
Selected contributions will concern the development of psychology-based technologies in their beginning phase (proof of concept), intermediate phase (prototypes without a user-experience research) and final phase (products adopted by end users). The symposium encourages the presentation of prototypes at an embryonic phase (TRL1, TRL2) to enhance the project development (see here).
Examples of TOPIC include, but are not limited to, the following:
EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGIES (Serious games, MOOCs, technology enhanced learning, virtual reality applications)
ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGIES AND ASSISTIVE ROBOTICS (rehabilitation technologies, ambient-assisted living, technologies for the care of the elderly)
TECHNOLOGY TO SUPPORT REQUEST RESPONSES OF PERSONS WITH INTELLECTUAL AND MULTIPLE DISABILITIES
COMPUTATIONAL PSYCHOMETRICS FOR COGNITIVE ASSESSMENT AND TRAINING
COGNITIVE AND COMPUTATIONAL MODELLING
INTELLIGENT USER INTERFACE (adaptive virtual agents, smart multi-modal interfaces)
SYSTEM ADAPTATION AND PERSONALIZATION BASED ON COGNITIVE AND PSYCHOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS
Second Symposium on Psychology-Based Technologies that will be held in Naples (Italy) on 28-29th September 2020.
**Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), participants will be allowed to join the conference both in-person and as live virtual events**
