Special Issue on Affective Brain-Computer Interfaces of the

International Journal of Autonomous and Adaptive Communication Systems

Editors: Anton Nijholt  et al.



Special Issue


This Special Issue of the International Journal of Autonomous and
Adaptive Communication Systems (IJAACS) is a follow-up of the aBCI
satellite workshop of the International Conference on Affective
Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII), held in Amsterdam in
September 2009. This Special Issue, is meant to explore the advantages
and limitations of using neurophysiological signals as a modality for
the automatic recognition of affective and cognitive states, as well as
the possibilities to use this information about the user state in
innovative and adaptive applications.




Recent research efforts in brain-computer interfaces (BCI) show that
brain activity can be used as an active/voluntary, or
passive/involuntary control modality in man-machine interaction. While
active BCI paradigms received a lot of attention in recent years,
research on passive approaches to BCI is still lacking concerted

However, it has been shown more than once that brain activations can
carry information about the affective and cognitive state of a subject,
and that the interaction between humans and machines can be aided by the
recognition of those user states.

To achieve robust passive BCIs, efforts from applied and basic sciences
have to be combined. On the one hand, applied fields such as affective
computing aim at the development of applications that adapt to changes
in the user states and thereby enrich the interaction, leading to a more
natural and effective usability. On the other hand, basic research in
neuroscience advances our understanding of the neural processes
associated with emotions. Furthermore, similar advancements are being
made for more cognitive mental states, for example attention, fatigue,
and work load, which strongly interact with affective states.


We encourage submissions exploring one or more of the following topics:

* emotion elicitation and data collection for affective BCI

* detection of affective and cognitive states with BCI and other

* adaptive interfaces and affective BCI, affective BCI applications

* embedding affective BCI in active and passive BCI approaches
