Symbiotic 2017

Date:
18 December to 19 December
Time:
00:00
Location:
'Zwarte Doos' at TU/e campus

The International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction collects research and discussion on the changing nature of the relationship between computer systems and humans. Traditionally there has been a clear boundary between the user and the computing system, computers served user’s goals as tools or services, and the interaction was mostly governed by explicit input from users.

However, solutions are increasingly adopted to implicitly (even subliminally) detect the user’s goals, preferences or/and psycho-physiological states and to modify computer output accordingly. This represents a step forward in the continuous attempt to facilitate users in their activity, but also sets new challenges, including ethics ones.

This workshop is a venue to present novel work in adaptive systems, physiological computing, Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs), collective systems, cyber-physical systems instantiating such kind of relationship, which - provokingly - we called 'symbiotic'. Research on non-human animal behavior would be off-topic in this workshop.

This year the International Workshop on Symbiotic Interaction will be held in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, after successful editions in Padua, Helsinki, London and Berlin. It will take place on the Monday and Tuesday December 18 and 19, 2017 and will be hosted by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).
