Special Session

We encourage participants to organize special sessions with their academic acquaintance and research partners. Each organized session should have 3~5 papers, and the session organizers are responsible for corresponding with the conference committee. Please send the session title, abstract of the special session, titles of articles and detailed author information to icisip2019(at)ia-engineers.org. We are open for further discussion on this topic.

Title Bioinstrumentation, Affective Computing and Humanware Engineering
Abstract The primary purpose of our research group is to improve QOL using techniques such as subjective information processing, biological measurements, assistive technology and so on. Our research group describe the results of research in the area of “BACH” (Bioinstrumentation, Affective Computing, and Humanware Engineering) and propose new research methods following the ICISIP2017 and 2018’s special session. Papers in this special session are solicited for, but not limited to: “Influence from Imagining-Accuracy on Relaxation Effects during Imagining Music,” “Evaluation of comfort in a swinging chair by utilizing brainwaves and heartbeat fluctuation” and “Subjective Evaluation of Grayscale using VAS app” among other things. In this session, we focused on subjective evaluation. Especially, interesting experimental results are presented on self-assessment by Visual Analog Scale and analysis combining box plot diagram and clustering.
