The papers in the original conference proceedings also remain online on the measuringbehavior.org website, and you can find that here: http://www.measuringbehavior.org/mb2010/presentations-index-author.

Next year: Measuring Behavior 2012

The 8th International Conference on Methods and Techniques in Behavioral research, Measuring Behavior 2012, will take place on 28-31 August 2012 in Utrecht, The Netherlands.

The latest edition in Eindhoven (2010) was attended by almost 400 delegates from 34 countries. Can we welcome you next year too?

More information will be available soon! Stay updated on the latest news and updates and visit www.measuringbehavior.org for more information, join the Measuring Behavior group on LinkedIn, or like us on Facebook.

 

 

 

CALL FOR PAPERS: Theme issue on Measuring Behavior

The aim of this theme issue of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing on 'Measuring Behavior'  is to summarize emerging trends and common problems across different branches of social and behavioral sciences that involve measurements of human behavior. The emphasis in this theme issue is on methods and technologies for the measurement of behavior at the micro and macro level. 

Present day applications demand that behavioral measurements are performed in natural environments where the measuring devices are thoroughly integrated into everyday objects and activities. Understanding users' behavior in different contexts could be a goal of measuring human behavior, as well as a means for designing user experiences that utilize on pervasive measuring technology. 

This theme Issue is inspired by the Measuring Behavior 2010 conference (www.measuringbehavior.org) which provides a broad and interdisciplinary forum for novel methods to define, measure, and analyze human behavior. We solicit papers that analyze individuals and their behavior along with the interpersonal interaction, human-machine interaction, behavior of groups, and processes explaining for specific behaviors.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Eye tracking and gaze analysis
  • Sound, speech, and gesture analysis
  • Analysis of facial expressions and body movements
  • Monitoring social interaction in diverse contexts and conditions
  • Understanding users' behavior in context
  • Unveiling affective signals
  • Event recognition for behavioral measurement
  • Prediction the dynamics of social relations
  • Human behavior in traffic and urban environments
  • Living labs for studying human behavior
  • Designing user experiences that use mobile and pervasive technology
  • Measuring player experiences in digital and embodied games
  • Approaches for measuring usability, accessibility, and user experience

The papers will be reviewed according to the standards of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing www.springerlink.com/content/106503/. The special issue is open to everybody. In case a similar submission was made for the MB2010 conference, any submission to the theme issue will need to include at least 30% different or additional content.

Submission deadline: 15 February 2011
Notification to authors: 30 March 2011
Camera ready final papers: 30 June 2011

CALL FOR PAPERS: Special issue in Journal of Integrative Neuvorscience on Methods for Measuring Behavior and Integration - a Neuroscience Perspective

This Special Issue is inspired by the Measuring behavior conference www.measuringbehavior.org which provides a broad and interdisciplinary forum for novel methods to define, measure, and analyze human and animal behavior. We solicit papers that analyze individual behavior along with the patterns, behavior of groups and processes explaining for specific behaviors. We especially focus on integrative approaches of measuring different behavioral parameters with realistic interactive setting.

The aim of this issue is to summarize the emerging trends and common problems across different branches of social and behavioral neuroscience that involve measurements of human and animal behavior with emphasis on the used measurement method, and preferably integrative approach. The papers have to address problems in neurosciences.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Gait analysis in animals and humans
  • New animal models for psychiatric and neurological diseases
  • Measuring the behavior of laboratory animals
  • Combinative monitoring
  • New technologies for studying behavior
  • Video tracking and automatic behavior recognition
  • The home cage as starting point for innovative concepts in behavioral phenotyping
  • Measuring behavior using motion capture
  • Multimodal analysis of behavior and physiology
  • New hardware and software for measuring behavior
  • Studying behavior in realistic social environments
  • Monitoring emotional behavior in rodents and primates

The papers will be reviewed according to the standards of Journal of Integrative Neuroscience, World Scientific publishing, www.worldscinet.com/jin/. The special issue is open to everybody. In case a similar submission was made for the MB2010 conference, the content of the Special issue paper has to offer at least 30 percent different or additional content.

Submission deadline: 15 February 2011
Notification to authors: 30 April 2011
Camera ready papers: 30 June 2011
