Keynote Title: Wearable Computing with Eye Based HCI and Health Monitoring SensorsWearable computing with eye based Human-Computer interaction and physical and psychological health monitoring is proposed. One of the weak points of the conventional wearable computing is computer input device. Computer input just by sight would be a break thorugh. The proposed wearable computing also allows physical and psychological monitoring. Therefore, it would be helpful for guide and navigation as well as health monitoring for the peoples in particular for disable persons, elderly persons.
