21st European Annual Conference on
Human Decision Making and Control
15th and 16th July 2002, The Senate Room, University of Glasgow.
Human operators continue to play a critical role in protecting the
safety in many different domains. In spite of
recent advances in automated control and in process integration, human
decision making must still be explicitly
considered within the safety-cases that support many complex production
processes. In areas such as medicine,
the introduction of computer-based diagnostic aids has simply refocussed
attention on the errors that can arise
in interpreting the results provided by these systems. In aviation, the
introduction of glass cockpits has provoked
new forms of error that were not common in previous generations of
aircraft. These observations explain why the
central topics of EAM2002 continue to be 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;
the human component in system dependability;
managerial influences on human performance;
human behavior modeling and user models;
team work and work organization;
crew resource management;
cooperative systems and CSCW;
EAM2002 will bring together young and more established researchers from
different disciplines of the
human-machine system field. The intention is to provide a relatively
informal forum that will encourage the
exchange of ideas both about established and on-going research. This
meeting will be immediately followed by
the Workshop on the Investigation and Reporting of Incidents and
Accidents in Glasgow. We have organised
both meetings in the same week to encourage delegates to stay on and to
support the transfer of ideas in these
complementary areas. The intention is that delegates will be able to
register for both meetings at a reduced rate.
Deadlines: Authors should submit full papers not exceeding 4000 words to
Chris Johnson to arrive by 10th
April 2002. Electronic submissions are encouraged. Authors will be
notified of the committee's decision and
revised full papers must be returned by 10th June for inclusion in the
proceedings. There will be preprints of all of
the papers at the workshop. The intention is that selected papers will
be published in a special edition of either
Interacting With Computers or the Journal of Reliability Engineering and
