Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

AI in Human Factors and Ergonomics is extending across all aspects of human activity, providing a vital means of interpreting the interactions between humans and various applications that, together, constitute the elements of a socio technical system.

In fact, ergonomics (or human factors) is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data, and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance (ratified by the IEA Council, 2000).

This Special Issue focuses on recent advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques applied to human factors and ergonomics. For this purpose, we invite researchers to contribute original research papers exploring methods and computational modelling applied to AI and humans.

The Special Issue topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

-Neuroergonomics, cognitive ergonomics and engineering;

-Digital human modelling;

-Social, occupational and organizational ergonomics;

-Physical ergonomics;

-Ergonomics in design;

-Ergonomics in medicine and healthcare;

-Ergonomics in vehicular (aerospace, automotive, railway and maritime) engineering;

-Ergonomics and apparel;

-Probabilistic methods in ergonomics.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. AI is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
