Working Conference on Human Error, Safety and Systems Development
Systems Development (HESSD)

Brussels - Belgium, September 23-25, 2009


HESSD is a forum that offers to practitioners and researchers an unique
opportunity to discuss leading edge techniques that can be used to
mitigate the impact of human error on safety-critical systems. The
present edition focus on techniques that can be easily integrated into
existing systems engineering practices. With this in mind, we hope to
address a number of different themes, including:
* techniques for incident and accident analysis;
* empirical studies of operator
* behaviour in safety-critical systems;
* observational studies of safety-critical systems;
* risk assessment techniques for interactive systems;
* safety-related interface design,
* development and testing.

We would also encourage papers that cross these boundaries. Finally, we
are interested to encourage contributions from many diverse sectors.
These include but are not limited to aviation, maritime and the other
transportation industries, the healthcare industries, process and power
generation, military application.


HESSD'2009 solicits full paper, short papers and demonstrations
presenting original research in conference topics are being sought. The
proceedings will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science(LNCS) Series of Springer.
