Call For Papers

Workshop on Physiological and Affective Computing: Methods and Applications (PACMA‘2018) will be held at the 18th International Conference on Computational Science and Applications (ICCSA 2018) July 2 - 5, 2018 in Melbourne, Australia. ICCSA 2018 is the next event in a series of highly successful conferences previously held in Trieste, Italy (2017), Beijing, China (2016), Banff, Canada (2015), Guimaraes, Portugal (2014), Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (2013) and Salvador de Bahia, Brazil (2012).


Physiological interaction goes beyond the physical interfaces that a computer has, to use bioelectrical, biomechanical, biochemical or biophysical signals of a human body, captured by hardware sensors, for novel advanced forms of human-computer interaction. A closely related concept is Affective computing, study and development of systems and devices that can recognize, interpret, process, and simulate human affects. Physiological and Affective Computing research combines engineering and computer science with psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, computational intelligence, and more.


Include, but are not limited to:
- Multimodal user interfaces
- Assisted Living Environments
- Advanced driver assistance systems
- Computational Intelligence methods
- Brain Computer Interface
- Gaze and gesture tracking
- Sentiment analysis
- Affect based control
- Speech, gait and facial affect recognition
- Human biometrics for IT security
- Applications for Robotics, interactive learning, gaming, virtual reality, smart environments, healthcare, assistive living, industrial automation, etc.
- Applications of neurocomputing-based methods for disaster management, circular economy, smart cities and smart grids
- Applications in Ambient Assisted Living and in Industry 4.0


Submitted papers will be subject to stringent peer review by at least three experts and carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings to be published by Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) (edited by Springer).

The extended versions of the best papers accepted and presented at this workshop will be invited for publication in a Special Issue of Information Technology and Control journal ( indexed by Clarivate Analytics Web of Science (IF = 0.475).
