The symposium focuses the impact of automation on the human, throughout our lives. We are constantly increasing our use of automation -- during work as well as recreation, in sickness and in health. Therefore, the creation of a sustainable synergy between people and the possibilities of automated systems is becoming a central task for the global society. The main objective of this symposium is to arrange a future- and solution-oriented meeting between international scientists, application specialists, and industrial experts. The topics of the Symposium will include, but are not limited to:
Human-centred and participatory design, Adaptive and dynamic automation, levels of automation, automation in working life, simulation of humans in automated contexts, personal, wearable, and ubiquitous automation, home automation, cognitive aspects of automation, human supervisory control,
disturbance handling in complex systems, maintenance of automated systems, complex and safety-critical systems, human learning in automated systems, product and system design methods for automation, cultural and ethical aspects of automation, environmental and sustainability aspects, economic aspects of automation, education and training issues
