iHSI 2018 - Call for Papers

iHSI 2018 Objective and Areas of Interest

You are cordially invited to participate in the 2018 International Conference on Intelligent Human Systems Integration: Integrating People and Intelligent Systems (iHSI 2018) which will be held at the JW Marriott Marquis, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 7-9th, 2018.

iHSI 2018  Conference aims to provide a global forum for presenting and discussing novel approaches, design tools, methodologies, techniques, and solutions for integrating people, intelligent technologies and automation, and artificial cognitive systems in all areas of human endeavor in industry, economy, government, and education, including but not limited to energy, transportation, urbanization and infrastructure development, digital manufacturing, social development, human health, sustainability, new generation of service systems, as well as safety, risk assurance, and cybersecurity in both civilian and military contexts.

iHSI 2018 Conference will focus on advancing the theory and applications of artificial cognitive systems and human-artificial systems collaboration by adopting a hybrid-centered design approach that utilizes and expands on the current knowledge of human-centered design and intelligent systems supported by cognitive software and engineering, smart data analytics, large scale socioeconomic simulations, and next generation computer visualization.  This interdisciplinary conference will also expand the boundaries of the current state-of-the-art by investigating the pervasive complexity that underlies the most profound problems facing contemporary society today.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by three independent referees from the International Editorial Board. Papers in the theoretical category should deal with theories, models, concepts, and structures; papers in the generic category should present research results of broad applicability; and papers in the applied category should show how research is translated into technological innovations for intelligent human-artificial systems collaboration.

Selected areas and topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Hybrid Cognitive-Centered Systems
