10th Berlin Human-Machine Systems Workshop

The 10th Berlin Human-Machine Systems Workshop focused on

Foundations and Applications of Human-Machine Interaction

10 - 12 October 2013 at the Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften


Call for Paper

Conference announcement

The 10th Berlin Workshop on Human-Machine Systems focuses on the interplay between basic research and applied research in the field of human-machine interac-tion, and on human-machine systems research in general. Applied research sometimes reveals deficits that can be solved only through basic research approaches. Similarly, research opportunities in applied areas arise from new insights in basic research on human-machine interaction, which need to be further developed through application-oriented research.

More than in previous years, the 10th Berlin Workshop on Human-Machine Systems invites international contribu-tions. In addition to the German research community, we especially invite colleagues from international research institutions and applied fields, to submit papers and to participate in the meeting. The 10th Berlin Workshop on Human-Machine Systems will again offer English-language tracks.

This anniversary Workshop also establishes new avenues to publish accepted contributions including an ISBN num-ber and free online access. Two kinds of submissions are invited: A “workshop track” focusing on the presentation and active discussion of work in progress. And a “Re-search Track” which is reserved for the presentation of well advanced and completed works. Both tracks present to a panel of scientists from the academic community and industries.


Conference topics

  • Support and assistance systems
  • Multimodal use concepts
  • User Experience Design
  • Neuroergonomics
  • Digital human models
  • Cognitive Modeling
  • Transgenerational Technology Design
  • Methods for the design, evaluation and anticipation of human-machine systems

Conference program

The programme includes

  • keynote lectures,
  • paper discussions,
  • special sessions and
  • a poster session for the presentation of ongoing research projects.

The conference program can be downloaded as pdf or viewed in conftool after login.


For your talk you have 20 minutes time followed by 20 min discussion. If there are 4 presentation in your session the discussion time will be reduced to 10-15 min.

Submission of papers

Experts from different disciplines (engineering, computer science, psychology, design, etc.) who want to support the workshop with a contribution are requested to send a proposal for a paper or poster.
