PhyCS is a forum for engineers, computer scientists and health professionals, interested in bridging the gap between physiological data handling and human-computer interaction. The steering committee cordially invites you to submit a paper to the PhyCS 2014 Conference, to be held in Lisbon, Portugal. The deadline for paper submission is scheduled for July 30, 2013.

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. PhyCS intends to gather researchers and foster outstanding research and development in this area.

We would like to highlight the presence of Prof. Antonio Camara, YDreams, Portugal as our first keynote lecturer.

We hope to welcome you in Lisbon, Portugal next January, 2014!
Should you have any question please don't hesitate contacting me.


Kind regards,
Susana Ribeiro

Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and EI (Elsevier Index).
All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library (http://www.scitepress.org/DigitalLibrary/). SCITEPRESS is member of CrossRef (http://www.crossref.org/).

Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session. Please check the website for further information (http://www.phycs.org/BestPaperAward.aspx).

Workshops, Special sessions, Tutorials as well as Demonstrations dedicated to other technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.

PhyCS 2014 will be held in conjunction with SENSORNETS (http://www.sensornets.org), PECCS (http://www.peccs.org) and PHOTOPTICS (http://www.photoptics.org) in Lisbon, Portugal. Registration to PECCS will enable free attendance to any sessions of SENSORNETS, PECCS and PHOTOPTICS conferences as a non-speaker.
