Physiological Measures for Games and VR: Novel Tools and Approaches - A Workshop

Monday, November 13, 2023

Dr. John Muñoz - Chief Science Officer at J&F Alliance Group and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Waterloo - hosted an interactive workshop on October 4th, 2023. This workshop covered the exploration of biometrics (or physiological measures) in game user research, driven by advancements in sensing technologies and the increased accessibility of signal processing tools. 

Dr. Muñoz’s workshop, titled “Physiological Measures for Games and VR: Novel Tools and Approaches” showcased how the growing body of research in games studios and startups is linking psychological states (mental conditions) to physiological signals and how this has strengthened the use of biometric technologies. 

This workshop occurred as the second event as part of a GDC talk held by Dr. Muñoz with the purpose of providing valuable insights that complement user experience methodologies in the fields of psychology and technology and gaming. This workshop also provided wonderful experiences with deep insights for the attendees seen below.
