* Call for Participation and Contributions *
International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction
Berlin, 7th and 8th of October 2015
Technische Universität Berlin, Germany
The Symbiotic Workshop presents an overview of the symbiotic
relationships between humans and computers as well as novel
advancements therein. There will be organized sessions and room
for free discussions to shape the concepts, goals, and directions
of this new field of research. The idea of symbiotic systems put
forward in this workshop capitalises on the computers’ ability to
implicitly (even subliminally) detect the users goals and
psycho-physiological states and thereby enhancing human-computer
interaction (HCI) without subducting control from the human. A
special focus of this year’s Symbiotic Workshop will be on
physiological computing approaches, e.g. using brain-computer
interface (BCI) technology.

Call for Contributions include Research Papers (12 pages including
references) or Posters and Demos (6 pages) that contribute to an
emergent community investigating Symbiotic Interaction as a future
paradigm with theories and conceptual frameworks, experimental
paradigms and user studies, multi-modal data analysis and design
driven research. Submission guidelines are available from .

The proceedings (including research papers as well as short papers
for posters and demos) will be published in LNCS Springer Lecture
Notes in Computer Science. Contributions can be submitted at
