ICEC 2012

Last week (26-29 September) we went to Bremen together with three colleagues from UT-HMI for the ICEC 2012. Following the enjoyable Open Source Software for Entertainment tutorial organized on the first day by Prof. Letizia Jaccheri, we listened to many interesting talks on entertainment computing during the conference.

I presented a short paper in which we propose a brain-computer interface (BCI) games framework. The framework identifies a BCI game by its motivation to be played (e.g. challenge, fantasy, sociality) and its mechanism to be played (e.g. evoked response generation, movement imagery, mental state regulation). You can read the paper here.

Next year, ICEC 2013 will be in beautiful São Paulo, Brazil. So, start writing! :)

User Experience Evaluation & Brain-Computer Interface Games” during the public ceremony held at the University of Twente, The Netherlands. My opponents were Prof. Matthias Rauterberg, Prof. Christoph Klimmt, Prof. Peter Desain, Prof. Frank van der Velde, Prof. Dirk Heylen and Dr. Marco Congedo. You can download the thesis here.
