Table of Contents

The 1st International Symposium on Human Mental Workload: Models and Applications (H-WORKLOAD 2017) will be held in Dublin (June 28-30, 2017) at Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland, in association with the Irish Ergonomics Society Annual Conference 2017

The scientific programme of WORKLOAD 2017 will consist of regular and technical contributions reviewed and selected by an international programme committee, as well as keynote talks and tutorials given by leading experts in their fields.

The symposium aims to become the premier event for discussion of emerging research on mental workload and its models and applications. It will bring together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines including human factors, computer science, psychology, education, and neuroscience and provide a mechanism for the exchange of ideas and technologies between a worldwide audience of academics and industrial scientists.

Guidelines on paper preparation and submission can be found here.

All accepted speakers must register for the conference to be included in the final programme and proceedings.


We solicit submissions on previously unpublished research work on human mental workload covering all disciplines and domains. Example areas include but are not limited to:

Mental workload theory and frameworks

Formal models of mental workload Computational mental workload Dimension and metrics of mental workload Cognitive load theory Human information processing Cognitive capacity

Measurement of mental workload

Physiological measures Self-report and subjective measures Analytic measures Computational and big data measures Neurological measures

Mental workload in context

Overload and underload effects Impact on operators and operations Safety and risk Team load and collaborative aspects Distributed cognition Impact on performance Impact on situation awareness

Applications of mental workload in practice

Mental workload and interaction design Mental workload and human machine interfaces Mental workload and user experience Mental workload and assistive technologies Mental workload in education and instructional design Mental workload and simulation Mental workload and prototyping Mental workload in large scale open and decentralised environments Mental workload and user studies

Mental workload in safety critical domains

Transportation (road, rail, aviation, maritime) Medical and healthcare Oil and gas Process industries Manufacturing Nuclear

All accepted papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings and a selection of papers will be chosen for a planned special volume published by Springer.
