The 1st International Symposium on Human Mental Workload: Models and Applications (H-WORKLOAD 2017) will be held in Dublin (June 28-30, 2017) at Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland, in association with the Irish Ergonomics Society Annual Conference 2017

The scientific programme of WORKLOAD 2017 will consist of regular and technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international programme committee, as well as keynote talks and tutorials given by leading experts in their fields.

The symposium aims to become the premier event for discussion of emerging research on mental workload and its models and applications. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines including human factors, computer science, psychology, education, and neuroscience and provide a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and technologies between a worldwide audience of academics and industrial scientists.

We solicit submissions on previously unpublished research work on human mental workload covering all disciplines and domains. Example areas include but are not limited to:

Mental workload theory and frameworks

Formal models of mental workload

Computational mental workload

Dimension and metrics of mental workload

Cognitive load theory

Human information processing

Cognitive capacity

Measurement of mental workload

Physiological measures

Self-report and subjective measures

Analytic measures

Computational and big data measures

Neurological measures

Mental workload in context

Overload and underload effects

Impact on operators and operations

Safety and risk

Team load and collaborative aspects

Distributed cognition

Impact on performance

Impact on situation awareness

Applications of mental workload in practice

Mental workload and interaction design

Mental workload and human machine interfaces

Mental workload and user studies

Mental workload in safety critical domains

Transportation (road, rail, aviation, maritime)

Medical and healthcare

Oil and gas

Process industries
