h-workload 2017 : H-WORKLOAD 2017 - The 1st International Symposium on Human Mental Workload: Models and Applications
Call For Papers
The 1st International Symposium on Human Mental Workload: Models and Applications (H-WORKLOAD 2017) will be held in Dublin (June 28-30, 2017) at Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland, in association with the Irish Ergonomics Society Annual Conference 2017
The scientific programme of WORKLOAD 2017 will consist of regular and technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international programme committee, as well as keynote talks and tutorials given by leading experts in their fields.
The symposium aims to become the premier event for discussion of emerging research on mental workload and its models and applications. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines including human factors, computer science, psychology, education, and neuroscience and provide a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and technologies between a worldwide audience of academics and industrial scientists.
We solicit submissions on previously unpublished research work on human mental workload covering all disciplines and domains. Example areas include but are not limited to:
Mental workload theory and frameworks
Formal models of mental workload
Computational mental workload
Dimension and metrics of mental workload
Cognitive load theory
Human information processing
Measurement of mental workload
Self-report and subjective measures
Computational and big data measures
Mental workload in context
Overload and underload effects
Impact on operators and operations
Safety and risk
Team load and collaborative aspects
Impact on performance
Impact on situation awareness
Applications of mental workload in practice
Mental workload and interaction design
Mental workload and human machine interfaces
