Devices that Alter Perception 2008 will be held on September 21st, 2008 in Seoul, Korea. This workshop is organized in conjunction with UbiComp 2008.

Sensors, actuators, implants, wearable computers, and neural interfaces can do more than simply observe our bodies; these devices can alter and manipulate our perceptions. This workshop will promote design and critique of systems with the explicit intent of altering the human percepts. Participants will be asked to present position papers or demonstrations concerning devices that act on phenomena related to the process of perception. The goals of the workshop are to: (1) better understand the process of perception (2) aid those developing devices by sharing designs (3) debate of ethical and social issues that are unique to devices that operate below or upon awareness.

We welcome those interested in attending the workshop's presentations of position papers and demonstrations. The workshop's position papers are now online a the dap reddit for commentary and voting. Details of the final program will soon be made available.
