The 3rd IEEE International Conference on Human-Machine Systems (ICHMS) will be held in Orlando, Florida, USA during November 17-19, 2022 as a hybrid event. ICHMS will provide opportunities for the academic and industrial communities to address new challenges, share solutions, and discuss future research directions in the important area of Human-Machines Systems. ICHMS specifically covers contributions on research related to integrated human/machine systems at multiple scales, and includes areas such as human/machine interaction; cognitive ergonomics and engineering; assistive/companion technologies; human/machine system modeling, testing and evaluation; and fundamental issues of measurement and modeling of human-centered phenomena in engineered systems.
