- Design of Personal/Home Interactive Medical Devices: where the complexity of social environment, device operator’s physical capabilities and psychological activities have great effect on user’s decision making as well as error rate;
- Design to Manage Human Error in Clinical Settings: which includes designing interactive medical devices with human error management features, new design approaches or tools to ensure safer interaction, and improving incident reporting and learning system to better capture user error.
Papers may describe ongoing work, recent results, or opinions and approaches related to the workshop topic. A short biography of the author(s) attending the workshop needs to be included (100 words).
Papers will be peer-reviewed and the organizing committee will select most suitable position papers and demonstration proposals according to relevance, quality of results, research diversity, and likelihood for stimulating and contributing to the discussion. If accepted, at least one author must register for the workshop and for one or more days of the conference. Accepted papers will also be compiled on the workshop website.
