Call For Papers

Conference announcement and call for papers

We live in times of intensive change. Technological innovations are occurring at shorter and shorter intervals – and that also alters the interaction between humans and machines. The emergence of new forms of communication almost seems to follow the opposite route to human evolution: from complex written commands through acoustic speech inputs and outputs, to eye movements and gestures.
Various generations of both technological systems and of users now meet at work and in everyday situations. The variety of old and new interaction techniques, fields of application and distribution of tasks between humans and machines calls into question some of the insights gained in Human-Machine Interaction (HMI) research and methods which are currently in use.
At the 9th Berlin Human-Machine Systems Workshop (BWMMS) both past achievements and visions of future developments will be discussed and contrasted. This will involve reference to basic research and to practically-oriented contributions.

Lead questions

What has stood the test of time in HMI research?
What can we learn from this?

What has stood the test of time in evolution?
What can we learn from this?

What will be new about future interfaces?
What will we have to learn for that?

Main topics

• Support and assistance systems
• Multimodal use strategies
• User Experience Design
• Designing the human-technology interaction of ambient systems
• Development and use of digital human models
• Trans-generational design of technology
• Methods for the design, evaluation and anticipation of human-machine system

The 9th Berlin Human-Machine Workshop will once again offer an extensive English-language track.


The programme includes
• Key-note lectures,
• Paper discussions (paper on research and development followed by a discussion session),
• Moderated workshops (discussion circles on the main topics of the workshop)
• A poster session for the presentation of on-going research projects.

Invited speakers

Prof. Dr. Gesche Joost – Design Research Lab, Deutsche Telekom Laboratories, An-Institut of the TU Berlin.
Prof. Dr. Caroline Hummels – Technische Universiteit Eindhoven, Department of Industrial Design, Designing Quality in Interaction
Dr. Sandra Hart – Formerly Aerospace Human Factors Research Division, NASA-Ames Research Center
