In industry, systems are primarily designed and built for production efficiency, while taking safety into account because of regulatory frameworks that are in place. In this context, even though research has studied well-being aspects in industry, such as support and improvement of ergonomics, there is a long way to achieve workable work.
To close that gap, in this workshop we want to explore how we can design, build, and validate user interfaces for industry to support long term growth and development of human workers performing manual labour. To this end, we want to focus on the exploration of research supporting training of physical and cognitive skills (process oriented) without sacrificing the well-being of workers. We are open to recent developments in rehabilitation sciences, (eXplainable) AI, safety-critical systems, e-health, persuasive system design, human-robot interaction, among other HCI subdisciplines that can find its way into the design of industrial interfaces to improve worker well-being, as well as the definition of the appropriate methodologies for the validation of such solutions.
We welcome position papers, late breaking results, but also use cases and experience reports that can help steering the community efforts providing a healthy, safe and well-adapted work environment for workers around the globe. Not only to protect and ensure their well-being, but also to enable longer participation in the labour market.
