1 7th International Conference on Neurotechnology and Physiological Computing Systems NEUROPhyCS 2019 will be held in conjunction with icsports 2019 and CHIRA Registration to NEUROPhyCS allows free access to the icsports and CHIRA conferences (as a non-speaker). Upcoming Deadlines Regular Paper Submission: April 29, 2019 Regular Paper Authors Notification: June 28, 2019 Regular Paper Camera Ready and Registration: July 12, 2019 Computer systems are increasingly pervasive, in particular in biomedical applications. Physiological data in its different dimensions, either bioelectrical, biomechanical, biochemical or biophysical, collected through specialized biomedical devices, involving image, video and other types of signal, in wireless body networks or otherwise, is opening new boundaries in the field of human-computer interaction into what can be defined as physiological computing. Neurotechnology is one of the most promising areas within physiological computing, where some of the most significant advances are being witnessed, including extensive research on brain-computer interfaces. NeuroPhyCS brings together researchers and practitioners interested in creating and using novel interaction devices, adaptable interfaces, algorithms and tools, through the study, planning, and design of interfaces between people and computers, supported by multimodal biosignals. Researchers attending NeuroPhyCS will interact with other researchers and practitioners that seek to push forward the state-of-the-art. Conference Areas 1. Sensors and Devices 2. Methodologies and Methods 3. Human Factors 4. Applications Conference Chair Hugo Plácido Silva, IT- Institute of Telecommunications, Portugal PROGRAM CHAIR Juan-Manuel Belda-Lois, Instituto de Biomecánica de Valência, Spain Keynote Speakers Pietro Cipresso, Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italy Bart Vanrumste, KULeuven, Belgium Kristina Höök, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden Open Communications Submission: July 10, 2019 SCOPE Computer systems are increasingly pervasive, in particular in biomedical applications. Physiological data in its different dimensions, either bioelectrical, biomechanical, biochemical or biophysical, collected through specialized biomedical devices, involving image, video and other types of signal, in wireless body networks or otherwise, is opening new boundaries in the field of human-computer interaction into what can be defined as physiological computing.

2 Neurotechnology is one of the most promising areas within physiological computing, where some of the most significant advances are being witnessed, including extensive research on brain-computer interfaces. NeuroPhyCS brings together researchers and practitioners interested in creating and using novel interaction devices, adaptable interfaces, algorithms and tools, through the study, planning, and design of interfaces between people and computers, supported by multimodal biosignals. Researchers attending NeuroPhyCS will interact with other researchers and practitioners that seek to push forward the state-of-the-art. We seek original submissions that describe novel methodologies, technologies and applications in this field, and greatly encourage authors to complement their oral and poster communications, with demonstrations showing novel physiological computing and human-computer interaction concepts or systems. CONFERENCE AREAS Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the following main topic areas: 1. SENSORS AND DEVICES 2. METHODOLOGIES AND METHODS 3. HUMAN FACTORS 4. APPLICATIONS AREA 1: SENSORS AND DEVICES Biomedical Devices for Computer Interaction Biochips and Nanotechnology Bionic Vision Cochlear Implants Deep Brain Stimulation Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation Haptic Devices Brain-Computer Interfaces Health Monitoring Devices Physiology-Driven Robotics Wearable Sensors and Systems Cybernetics and User Interface Technologies Robotic Interfaces Mediated by Biosignals Telerehabilitation AREA 2: METHODOLOGIES AND METHODS Biosignal Acquisition, Analysis and Processing Cognitive Science and Psychology Augmentative and Alternative Communication Privacy, Security and Neuroethics Intelligent Diagnosis Systems Brain Models and Functions Computational Neuroscience Simulation of Physiological Processes Pattern Recognition Neural Networks Observation, Modeling and Prediction of User Behavior Video and Image Analysis for Physiological Computing
