Track Description

The track aims to bring together latest research and application on modelling and simulating the way persons act and react within technical systems in certain situations or under certain conditions, the role human actors play in simulation projects, and the impact human knowledge and experience have on model building and simulation output interpretation. With this, we want to provide a platform for discussion and exchange on needs, approaches, methods and tools for supporting both representation of active, intervening humans as subject of modelling and simulation, and involvement of intuitive, experienced humans as modelling and simulation knowledge stakeholders.


· Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

· Modelling and simulation of human behaviour

· Modelling and simulation of manual operations and for staff allocation

· Modelling and simulation of human decision making in industrial applications

· Integration of human thinking and decision making into modelling and simulation – interaction and collaboration between simulation model and simulation user based upon knowledge and experience

· Human modelling and simulation to solve real-world problems focusing on human-centred technologies in every aspect of design, manufacturing, and safety

· Serious Gaming for Behavioural Assessment and Research.
