International Summer School on Situation Awareness in Cognitive
Technologies 2021

Theory and Application

September 6-11th, 2021 at Magdeburg, Germany. In conjunction with ICHMS

*** Scope: ***

We are pleased to announce that the International Summer School on
Situation Awareness in Cognitive Technologies (ISACT 2021) will be held
from September 6 to 11, 2021 in Magdeburg, Germany, in conjunction with
the IEEE International Conference on Human-Machine Systems (ICHMS 2021).

Situation Awareness in Cognitive Technologies is a trending research
direction that gained a lot of interest from the industry in recent
years. Therefore, the summer school aims to present the fundamental
aspects of situation awareness in cognitive technologies which can be
discussed in an interdisciplinary context. There are a couple of aspects
to consider: Situation Awareness, Cognitive Technologies, Human-Computer
Interaction (HCI) and Explainable AI (XAI). Especially the HCI context
provides a link between theory and application which receives special
attention in this summer school along with the recent trends in
Explainable AI. To make this school an interactive learning experience,
we would encourage the participants to share their research
presentations (posters) related to the above-mentioned topics.

This year’s edition intends to bring together academia and industry to
provide a large practical perspective to undergraduate and graduate
(including early-stage PhD) students, as well as to young industry
personnel. Attendees will be able to extend their knowledge in both
theoretical and practical aspects of:
  - Situation Awareness
  - Cognitive Technologies
  - Brain-Computer Interaction
  - Human-Computer Interaction
  - Explainable AI

The International Summer School on Situation Awareness in Cognitive
Technologies is a great opportunity to learn about new technologies,
meet fellow students/employees, discuss ideas with experts, participate
in an international conference and simply have a splendid time in the
city of Otto von Guericke!
