BioS-Play: Workshop on Multiuser and Social Biosignal Adaptive Games
and Playful Applications
(K.U.Leuven, 15 September 2010) workshop in conjunction with the Fun
and Games Conference 2010

In a nutshell: System adaptation or enhanced communication based on
biosignal data, or sensor data and system metrics, which captures user

Target domain: Social and multiplayer games and playful applications.

For researchers, theoreticians, and game designers.

Send 2 to 4-page ACM SIGCHI format position papers to

We invite you to submit position papers relating to the use of
physiological, biological, or behavioral signals in social and
multiuser games and entertainment applications. For this workshop the
understood definition of biosignals is them being psychophysiologal
signals such as EEG, EMG, GSR, or heart rate, but also pressure
sensors, motion and gesture sensors, eye trackers, or behavioral
gameplay metrics data. The workshop will focus on discussions
pertaining to the design implications gathered from biometric data as
well as methodologies concerning the application and analysis of the

Submissions are invited on the following topics (though not restricted
to these topics):

- Related biometric or affective input gaming prototypes
- Experimental studies using biosignals
- Design proposals for games using affective input, adaptive input
processing or biosignals for evaluation or interaction
- Conceptual analysis of biosignal data
- Related philosophical considerations (ethics, social impact, phenomenlogy)

Submissions are expected in the form of two to four-page position
papers, describing the area of research and motivation to join the
workshop. We expect that you will also describe your expectations of
the workshop.

Papers should be formatted according to the ACM SIGCHI guidelines (HCI
archive format), see

Position papers should be sent to [log in to unmask]

Participants will be selected on the basis of the relevance of their
work and their interests and familiarity with the topic.

Accepted papers will be collected to a publication, which will be
published by Helsinki Institute for Information Technology. We will
also consider possibility to organize a joint journal publication
related to workshop themes.
