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
