Organizers


Lewis Chuang
leads research on "Cognition and Control for Human-Machine Systems" at the Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics in Tuebingen, Germany. He employs gaze tracking and physiological sensing (i.e., EEG) methods to understand how humans seek out and process information when interacting with closed-loop machine systems (e.g., vehicle handling). He studied psychology at the Universities of York (BSc) and Manchester (MPhil) and received his PhD in neuroscience at the University of Tübingen in 2011. He is a principal investigator at the transregional research center for "Quantitative Methods for Visual Computing". Previous projects include "myCopter-Enabling technologies for personalized aerial vehicles".





Dietrich Manstetten
is a Director and Chief Expert for Human-Machine Interaction at the Corporate Research of Robert Bosch GmbH in Stuttgart, Germany. He studied mathematics and computer science at the Technical University of Aachen where he received his MS in mathematics in 1985 and his PhD in 1988 from the department of computer science. He directed several research projects dealing with driver-vehicle interaction and driver monitoring, including the corresponding projects within the German public funded initiatives Invent, Aktiv, and UR:BAN. In parallel to his work at Bosch, he leads the working group ``The human as a vehicle driver'' in the research association FAT of the German Association of the Automotive Industry VDA and serves as an adjunct professor at the University of Armed Forces Munich.

Susanne Boll
 heads the Media Informatics and Multimedia Systems at the University of Oldenburg and the intelligent user interfaces group at the OFFIS Institute for Information Technology as a scientific director. She is highly active in designing novel multimodal interfaces and attention shift in pervasive environments. She has been working in the field of designing unobtrusive interfaces for taking over to manual driving from phases of automated driving. Currently she leads several research projects in related areas such as SAMS (Safe Automation of Maritime Systems) and  CSE (Interdisciplinary Research Center on Critical Systems Engineering for Socio-technical Systems, Socio-technical Automotive Systems---The Car That Cares) in which shared control between human and machine automation is a core research challenge. 





Martin Baumann
 is the professor for Human Factors at Ulm University since 2014. He received his Dr. phil. from Chemnitz University of Technology in 2001 and later moved to the German Aerospace Center where he led the teams ``Driver Cognition'' and ``System Ergonomics and Interaction Design''. His main research interests are the cognitive processes underlying the comprehension of dynamic situations in traffic and in the interaction with intelligent machines, such as highly automated vehicles or robots, concepts of cooperative human-machine interaction, human-machine trust development. He is a principal investigator in several national and international projects focusing on concepts of cooperative driver-vehicle interaction.
