Human Factors Engineering (HFE) Track seeks to bring together researchers and practitioners in all areas of human factors engineering to provide a forum where the state-of-the-art in the field is developed and showcased. The theme for 2020, Human-Agent Teaming (HAT), will focus on the advancements in theory and practice related to human interaction with intelligent agents in a wide variety of environments. The scope of this track will cover theoretical aspects of HAT processes (e.g., communications, human information processing and decision making) and practical aspects related to latest tools and technologies for HAT R&D efforts. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
  • Human-robot interaction and interfaces
  • Human-agent communications: multimodal communications, natural language dialog, explainable AI, transparency
  • HAT models and characteristics: predictors, processes, outcomes, trust, situation awareness
  • Virtual, Augments, and Mixed Reality (VAMR) for HAT applications
  • Development of human-agent teams and human-centered teamwork agents
  • Ethical challenges associated with HAT operations/applications
