4th International Conference on Human System Interaction (HSI 2011)

Appreciation to all the participants of HSI 2011:

The HSI 2011 organizing committee would like to thank all the participants, authors, track chairs and paper reviewers for their great contribution, and is hoping to see you in HSI 2012 to be held in Perth, Australia, 31 May - 2 June 2012.




About the Conference

The recent development of computational technologies contributes to introducing intelligent and interactive systems for supporting and extending human activities. International Conference series on Human System Interactions have been providing a platform for interdisciplinarily exchanging ideas, knowledge, skills and experiences in interactions between human and systems. The 4th conference will be held in Keio University, Yokohama City, and the topics of the conference will cover but is not limited to:

- Human-interactive robots
- Intelligent sensors and actuators
- Vision and auditory systems
- Modeling and control of interactive systems
- Simulations and simulation software
- Micro-robotics and systems for HSI
- Artificial intelligence and computational intelligence
- Assistive technologies
- Transportation systems

Special features on Human factors;
1. Facial studies
2. Recognition and expression technology for human communications
