Today, we have grown from a need based society to a society that
demands our comforts. No longer are we at the mercy of the speed
and memory of our computers, but desire the computers to work
for us for our convenience. No longer are we satisfied with key
boards and mouse, but we need more interactive computers that
can realize our commands and feelings, even if inaccurate- we
want our computers to be our Jeeves. This, coupled with the need
for security and safety of people working in difficult environments
has fuelled the need for improved and more versatile human computer
interface systems, and brought computer engineers closer to sensor
scientists and biomedical engineers.
Researchers who work on this complex topic belong to diverse backgrounds
and the aim of this workshop is to assemble such researchers together
to discuss their ideas and solutions. The topics that will be
1. Design of Biosensors.
2. Biosensor networks.
3. Biosensor data fusion and localization.
4. Software systems for managing diverse sensor inputs.
5. Biomedical equipment designers.
6. Signal Processing for multiple sensors
7. Source identification for biosignals.
8. Source identification for audio commands.
9. Source separation for audio and video data
10. Video data analysis for command actions.
11. Video and audio segmentation.
12. Image analysis for human command gestures.
13. Biosignal acquisition techniques
14. Biosignal analysis and classification techniques.
15. Unimodal dedicated and multimodal systems
16. Wireless transmission of biosignals
17. Biometric systems
18. Gait analysis and biosignals.
