This volume contains the proceedings of the First International Workshop on Bio-inspired Human-Machine Interfaces and Healthcare Applications (B-Interface 2010). The Workshop was held in Valencia, Spain, 21-22 January 2010, under the umbrella of BIOSTEC 2010. The objective of B-Interface is to assemble researchers from diverse backgrounds together to discuss their ideas and solutions and to build a new vision in biosignal analysis, physiological pattern recognition, biomedical engineering, neural human-machine interface, affective human-machine interface, home sensor networks, and healthcare applications. The peer-reviewed papers in this volume cover both fundamental and applied topics in these multidiscipline research fields. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the international program committee members for their valuable reviews and help on launching this new workshop successfully. We gratefully acknowledge the professional support of INSTICC and BIOSTEC team for
all organizational processes. Special thanks are due to Ms. Vera Coelho for preparing the workshop proceedings and continuous help throughout the workshop organization. No workshop would be successful without outstanding papers and inspiring presentations. We sincerely thank all the authors for their submissions and participation in B-Interface 2010.
