SHFE Trak- MAS 2012 : Track on Simulation and Human Factors Engineering at MAS 2012
Call For Papers
Integration of human factors models is one of the most challenging issues in simulation. The consideration of ergonomic and behavioral aspects not only improve the accuracy of simulation models but also provide with new dimensions of analysis and experimentation such as health risks, motivation, comfort and other key subjective measures. There are many open questions concerning topics such as:
How can available models be integrated in simulation? How can their accuracy be improved?
What is the level of detail appropriate in practical applications?
What verification, validation and accreditation (VVA) techniques might be employed?
How do they affect a simulation project’s management?
How can human factors models contribute to the profitability of a simulation project?
We kindly invite you to submit contributions presenting experiences, case studies or advances in ergonomics, behavioral science, human factors models and their interface with simulation, irrespective of the field of application.
Topics include, but are not limited to the following areas:
· Digital human models (DHM).
· Integration of DHMs and discrete event’s simulation.
· Human behavior simulation.
· Implementation of human behavior models in discrete events
· Integration of human behavior and ergonomic models.
· Data collection and analysis techniques for human factors engineering.
· Verification, validation and accreditation (VV&A) methods for human factors engineering.
· Optimization of human factors models.
· Management of simulation projects

Early Registration:July 1, 2012
Authors' Guidelines (further information author’s instruction section)
Extended abstracts (minimum 2 pages), full draft papers or other proposals should be submitted for the review process through the submission section by April 12, 2012
The extended abstract or the full draft paper must contain title, authors, affiliations, addresses, main body and references.
Each extended abstract or full draft paper will be reviewed by at least two members of the International Program Committee taking into consideration scientific quality, originality and relevance. Only original papers, written in English will be accepted.
The extended abstract or the full draft paper should be prepared by following the final paper formatting. However any type of paper formatting can be accepted for the first submission.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Notification of acceptance will be sent by May 12, 2012.
CAMERA READY PAPER SUBMISSION
The International Program Committee will accept two types of camera ready papers: extended paper (10 pages, 2 columns); regular paper (6 pages, 2 columns) both for regular and special sessions.
The camera ready paper must adhere to the conference template. The .dot file contains the complete instructions for preparing a camera ready copy for the Proceedings. The final version of the paper must be a PDF file.
Your camera ready paper (extended paper or regular paper) in PDF format must be submitted by using the submission section before the June 12, 2012
The page limit for manuscripts is ten (10) pages (included in the author registration fee). Additional pages will require an additional fee.
If your work must be cleared or approved before publication by your institution, company, or governmental agency, please be sure that process will be completed by the due date above or we will not be able to include it in the CD Conference Proceedings.
