The field of Brain-Computer Interfacing (BCI) traditionally conceives of BCIs as a controller for interfaces, a device which allows you to "act on" external devices as a form of input control. However, most BCIs do not provide a reliable and efficient means of input control and are difficult to learn and use relative to other available modes. We propose to change the conceptual use of "BCI as an actor" (input control) into "BCI as an intelligent sensor" (monitor). This shift of emphasis promotes the capacity of BCI to represent spontaneous changes in the state of the user in order to induce intelligent adaptation at the interface. This conceptual change gives rise to 4 grand challenges:

  1.  Integration challenge: How can we integrate user-information from different interactions channels and sensors, including BCI?
  2.  Interpretation challenge: How can we fuse, but also disentangle and interpret information from the user, the task and the environment?
  3.  Representation challenge: How can we best represent the information to the user?
  4.  Multi-user and multi-player: challenge: How can we use information from multiple users/players for one system?
Go for a detailed description and more sub-challenges to our website<>.
What can you send in?
We invite work on systems which (could) use BCI's as intelligent sensors. Many formats are welcome and authors should feel free to think of their own challenges.

  *   Papers on developed systems: please follow the template styles for a long paper described by ICMI. Click here<>.
  *   Posters or papers proposing an idea: please follow the template styles for a short paper described by ICMI. Click here<>.
  *   Demo: please follow the template styles for a short paper described by ICMI and describe your demo. Click here<>.
Accepted papers will be included in the ICMI conference proceedings, which will be published by ACM as part of their series of International Conference Proceedings. As such the ICMI proceedings will have an ISBN number assigned to it and all papers papers will have a unique DOI<> and URL assigned to them. Moreover, all accepted papers will be included in the ACM digital library<>.
