PAPER SUBMISSION

Submissions to the main conference, including Research Track,
Work-In-Progress Track, and Demo Sessions should be made through
www.neuroadaptive.org/ conference/2017/.
Submissions should be in the form of 1-page abstracts. A template will be
made available on the website.

All submissions will be blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the
basis of technical quality, relevance to conference topics of interest,
originality, significance, and clarity. Author names and affiliations must
not appear in the submissions, and bibliographic references must be
adjusted to preserve author anonymity.

All accepted abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings
(probably through ELSEVIER). A selection of authors will be invited after
the conference to submit full bookchapters about their research.

Detailed information:

INTRODUCTION
Neuroadaptive technology utilises real-time measures of neurophysiological
activity within closed loop Human- Computer Interaction to enable
intelligent software adaptation. Neurophysiological measures are used to
create a representation of transient psychological states. Real-time
monitoring of these states, in combination with information concerning the
situational context of the user, enables neuroadaptive technology to adapt
to the person in ways that are both timely and personalised.

The goal of neuroadaptive technology is to extend communication bandwidth
between people and computers by monitoring and modelling processes within
the brain and central nervous system. The adaptation of software to the
psychological state of the user closes the loop by actively promoting
desirable psychological states or mitigating negative ones. For example,
neuroadaptive technology may purposefully initiate software adaptation
designed to reduce workload or fatigue or stimulate positive emotions to
aid productivity. In this way, neuroadaptive technology creates novel modes
of interaction where the intentions of the user are inferred by using the
brain and body as a sensor.

>From a longitudinal perspective, sustained and repeated use of
neuroadaptive technology can evolve the user representation into a detailed
model of user preferences and responses. This development will enhance the
process of system personalization to reach a level of intelligent software
adaptation constructed around the desires of the individual across a range
of situational and psychological contexts.

The potential of neuroadaptive technology to significantly impact on
current modes of human-computer interaction raises a number of human
factors issues pertaining to machine autonomy and human-machine
cooperation.The reliance of this technology on neurophysiological data also
begs a number of ethical and societal questions related to privacy, consent
and ownership of personal data.

The closed control loop at the heart of neuroadaptive technology
encapsulates multidisciplinary methods, from neuroscientific measures to
engineering wearable sensors, it encompasses the development of machine
learning techniques, the design/evaluation of the neuroadaptive interface
and assessment of societal impact.

This is a multidisciplinary conference with strong engagement with: applied
neurosciences, mathematics, electronic engineering, robotics, computer
science and human factors psychology.

The format of the conference is 5 Keynotes, up to 3 parallel sessions for
oral presentations, poster presentations and demonstrations of
Neuroadaptive Technology.
