The deadline of contributions has been extended to the 10th
of May 2015.
As it enters into its second decade, the Berlin Workshop on Human-Machine Systems 2015 will have a slightly revised format. Some of the characteristic features will be retained, e.g. the presentation format with 20-minute papers in German with the same time available for discussion. This year more contributions in English will be included on research and development topics in order to improve the integration of international research in the field of human-machine systems.
There are four options for submissions: The Workshop Track allows the presentation and active discussion of work in progress. The Research Track is reserved for work which is more advanced or completed and which will be presented to scientists working in a university or an industrial setting. Posters can also be presented for discussion in a special session.
Another important new addition is the Focus Track, on the second day of the workshop. It provides a whole day for international researchers to deliver papers in English. The topic this year is 'Trends in Neuroergonomics'. It will offer insights into the latest approaches to research in neuroergonomics, the scientific investigation of how the human brain performs in real-world tasks. This year, papers will cover new approaches which allow the imaging of human brain activity during active movement and interaction with a system. New approaches will also be presented for the evaluation of neurophysiological data in real-time, allowing direct control of systems by means of human brain activity.
The Focus Track will take on the 2nd day and will conclude with the
keynote speech on neuroergonomics.
- Focus Track: Trends in
(Mobile Brain/Body Imaging, Brain-Computer Interfaces, Neuroadaptive Technology)
- Usability & User Experience
- Modelling & Simulation
- Cognitive Modelling
- Technology Design and Demographic Change
- Multimodal Use Concepts
- Methods for the Design,
Evaluation und Anticipation of Human-Machine Systems
The final conference program can be downloaded as pdf .
For your talk you have 20 minutes time followed by 20 minutes
discussion. If there are 4 presentation in your session the discussion
time will be reduced to 10-15 minutes.
Submission of papers
Specialists from various fields (engineers, computer scientists, psychologists, designers, etc.) are invited to submit proposals for Special Sessions, and papers in German or English for the Workshop Track, Research Track or Focus Track. If preferred, contributions can also be submitted as Poster.
In a Special Session, the proposers have a 2-hour block at their disposal for their special topic. They ca choose their own format (e.g. panel discussions, debates, or workshops). Submissions for the Special Sessions should include the title of the session, the names and addresses of the organisers, and an overview of the planned Special Session (about 1,000 words) with a list of authors or participants. Where appropriate, the individual contributions should be submitted together (each about 1,600 words).
The Workshop Track is dedicated to the presentation and active discussion of work in progress. It is intended to encourage interaction between the participants during the workshop. Contributions can be as oral presentation of posters. Submissions for the Workshop Track should include the title, the names and addresses of all authors (with e-mail addresses), the chosen presentation form (oral presentation or poster), the presentation language (German or English), the relevant subject topic, and the contribution itself (about 1,600 words).
The Research Track is reserved for work which is at an advanced stage or already completed and which will be presented to scientists working in a university or an industrial setting. Papers submitted for the Research Track should include the title, the names and addresses of all authors (with e-mail addresses), the presentation language (German or English), the relevant topic, and the contribution itself (about 1,600 words).
Focus Track - Trends in Neuroergonomics
For the Focus Track, scientists will be invited to give talks on work they have completed in the field of neuroergonomics. Young investigators (post-docs or PhD students) are invited to submit contributions for consideration on their own initiative (in the same format as for the Research Track). We particularly welcome submissions from female scientists. Technological contributions, applications, and analytical approaches will be considered. Contributions will be presented and published in English. After acceptance of a contribution for the Focus Track, an extended form (about 12,000 words) will be subjected to peer review as a full scientific paper for publication (see below).
The brief description (max. 1,600 words) must include:
- Complete address of author(s) including email
- Preferably assigned to one or more of the workshop topics
Contributions can directly submitted as Poster; it should include the title of the poster, the names and addresses of all authors (with e-mail addresses), the relevant subject topic and the brief description with 800 words.
Please use the conference tool for
After receiving the submissions for all Tracks, the Programme Committee will decide which to include in the workshop programme.
Please use for submission the following templates:
- Template english 
- How well addresses the contribution BWMMS topics?
- Originality of work.
- What kind of impact does the content have on the community/researchfield?
- Scientific quality of theoretical background, methods, and interpretation.
- How relevant is the content for practice?
- How comprehensible is the content?
- Appropriate form and language?
Publication of contributions
In the tradition of the Berlin Workshop, all accepted contributions for the Workshop Track and Research Track will be made freely available on the Internet and published with ISBN number in the Proceedings of the 11th Berlin Workshop on Human-Machine Systems. The published contributions will have a length of 1.600 words. As a new feature, contributions to the Focus Track can be published in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. These scientific papers will, however, first be subjected to an additional, external peer review.
