3rd International Conference on Physiological Computing Systems – PhyCS 2016

Physiological data in its different dimensions, either bioelectrical, biomechanical, biochemical or biophysical, and collected through specialized biomedical devices, video and image capture or other sources, is opening new boundaries in the field of human-computer interaction into what can be defined as Physiological Computing.

27 July 2016 - 28 July 2016

PhyCS is the annual meeting of the physiological interaction and computing community, and serves as the main international forum for engineers, computer scientists and health professionals, interested in outstanding research and development that bridges the gap between physiological data handling and human-computer interaction.
PhyCS 2016 will be held in conjunction with PECCS 2016 and ICETE 2016.
