21st European Annual Conference on
Human Decision Making and Control
15th and 16th July 2002, The Senate Room, University of Glasgow.
Human operators play a critical role in protecting the safety in many
different domains. In spite of recent advances in automated control
and process integration, human decision making must still be considered
within the safety-cases that support many complex production processes.
In medicine, the introduction of computer-based diagnostic aids has simply
refocussed attention on errors that arise in interpreting results provided
by these systems. In aviation, the introduction of glass cockpits
has provoked new forms of error that were uncommon in previous aircraft.
These observations explain why the central topics of EAM2002 are as
relevant today as they were when the series was started in 1981.
Papers are encouraged on, but not limited to, the following topics:
- detection, mitigation, prevention of human error;
- error recovery strategies;
- human error and wider forms of risk analysis;
- learning processes;
- the human component in system dependability;
- team work and work organization;
- managerial influences on human performance;
- crew resource management;
- human behavior modeling and user models;
- human-machine interaction.
- situation awareness;
- cooperative systems and CSCW;
This meeting will be immediately followed by a Workshop on the Investigation
and Reporting of Incidents and Accidents in Glasgow. Both meetings are
in the same week to encourage delegates to stay on and to support the
transfer of ideas in these complementary areas. Delegates will be able to
register for both meetings at a reduced rate.
Authors should submit full papers not exceeding 4000 words to
Chris Johnson by 10th April 2002. Electronic submissions are encouraged.
There will be preprints of all of papers. Selected papers will be
published in a special edition of either Interacting With Computers or
the Journal of Reliability Engineering and Systems Safety.
