2018 International Conference on CYBERWORLDS


Special Tracks


Cognitive Human-machine Interaction

Chair: Olga Sourina (Fraunhofer Singapore)

Humans are a center of interaction in Cyberworlds. Cognitive human-machine interaction research takes a central role in building of the shared digital worlds around the humans to support them in everyday modern life: working, learning, moving, communicating, shoping, entertaining, taking care of health, etc. One of the emerging areas in human-computer interaction is using of Electroencephalogram (EEG) both for direct interaction with machines and for research on human-computer interaction. Mobile BCI applications have attracted recently more attention from the research community and industry as wireless portable EEG devices became easily available on the market. By utilizing such systems, true understanding of human-machine interaction pattern can be obtained.  In this track, we invite works in the area on human-machine interaction that include but not limited the following research areas:

  • Cognitive informatics
  • Human factors in transportation, maritime, industry 4.0
  • Neurorehabilitation and neuroplasticity
  • Affective computing
  • Mobile BCI
  • Machine learning and deep learning for EEG-based algorithms
  • Multi-modal Interfaces
  • Neurofeedback systems and games
  • BCI applications

will consider for publications extended versions of all full papers accepted by the track.


Cybersecurity and Biometrics

Chair: Christophe Rosenberger (Normandy University, France)

Cybersecurity is an essential requirement when living in a digital world. Should one user trust a service on internet? How well secured are my personal data in the digital world? All these questions request new technical and methodological solutions involving many aspects among cryptography, information theory, protocols…
In order to establish a secure link between users and cyber services, biometrics becomes a key technology. However, it has also many drawbacks such as possible false rejection of legitimate users and false acceptance of impostors, privacy concerns and possible attacks (spoofing, replay).
In this track, we expect high-level research contributions in this area in order to propose useful solutions to secure our CyberWorld. The topics include but are not limited the following research areas:

  • Security protocols
  • Authentication protocols
  • Privacy protocols
  • Password security
  • Security of personal data
  • Content protection and digital rights management
  • Risk and reputation management
  • Identity and trust management
  • Information hiding and anonymity
  • Privacy, security and trust in social media
  • Security of embedded systems
  • Behavioral biometrics 
  • Performance evaluation of biometric systems
  • Multi-biometrics
  • Quality of biometric data
  • Biometric template protection
  • Presentation attack detection
  • Emerging biometrics (EEG…)
